Dua Lipa's Dad Organises New Music Festival
Dua Lipa's dad is fully organising his own Summer Music Festival and you'll never believe who's headlining...
Sunnyhill Festival is a concert-turned-festival, designed to accomodate the high demand for live music in Dua Lipa's roots of Kosovo and Albania, in South East Europe.
The event will take place in Prishtina, Kosovo – the singer’s hometown – between August 10-12. Dua Lipa will headline the event alongside Action Bronson and the “#1 DJ in the world” who will be announced on July 17.
The ABOUT US section on the event's website says:
"Our aim is to create a festival of a high standard, one that will put Prishtina and Kosovo on the music and festival map as a place that is worth visiting, a place that loves music and knows how to have fun. We want to attract visitors from all over the world to come and visit our country and enjoy the festival, and performances from dozens of artists of different genres."
Dua Lipa took to Twitter to announce the first ever Sunnyhill Festival and congratulated her dad.
“So proud of my dad @dukagjinlipa who had an idea and a dream and is doing exactly what he said he would,” she wrote. “I'd like to think I got some of my persistence and hunger from both my parents who have showed me that hard work will always shine through."
“He had an idea to create a festival in Prishtina, Kosova with lots of international and home acts to really help put Kosova on the map culturally,” she continued. “We have been so lucky to have all our friends join us for one of the most fun and musically diverse line-ups in the region.”
She added that 25% of all proceeds would go to the SunnyHill Foundation, which helps Kosovo’s youth in creative arts. “I’m so excited to head down a few days prior to the festival to do some work with the charity and visit my hometown!"
