The month of July is jam-packed with events every weekend, and organisers are busy putting the finishing touches to what is promising to be an exhilarating month for Uganda’s party animals. However, one event that is quite different from the rest is the Guinness Bright House Experience that is kicking off the party this month.
Taking place this Saturday at Motiv in Kampala, the event that is being organised by Guinness Uganda has been making waves on social media due to the unique style and set that the invited guests have been promised.
A fusion of creativity and socialising, the Bright House will be a hub for people to connect and inspire each other over a Guinness. It will have consumers interact with the brand in spaces of their interests, scaled up from football, which is synonymous with the brand, to music, fashion, visual arts, and digital content creation with master classes that will be held from midday throughout the day.
Here is a look at some of the faces to expect at the Guinness Bright House
Azawi: Signed to music powerhouse Swangz Avenue, Pricilla Zawedde aka Azawi is a multi-talented singer, songwriter and recording artist who broke onto the music scene in early 2019 with her hit song Quinimino.

Azawi will be sharing tips on how to make it in the cutthroat music industry at the Guinness Bright House.
