As you are aware, beer has been a great accompaniment to meat for time immemorial,” Rutabingwa said.
This third edition of Roast and Rhyme, will have live performances from Irene Ntale, Kaz Kasozi, Tonix, Babaluku and some poets.
“We are honored to have a brand like Bell Lager on board to elevate this event even further. We are certain that with Bell on board, we shall give people an even better experience. Benon Mugumbya, the co-founder of Swangz Avenue said.

As has become the norm with each edition of Roast and Rhyme, there will be an open mic session where members of the audience will be given a chance to perform through spoken word or instrumental performance or acapella.
According to Rutabingwa, everyone who comes to the event with a barbeque braai will get a free 4 pack of Bell Lager on the house.
Gates will open at 11 a.m and entry fees are 50,000 for adults, 3 million for a tent and 1.5 million for cabanas.
