Today (Thursday) the "Sunny Hill" festival starts in Pristina - the third edition.

A few hours before starting, the world-famous Albanian singer, Dua Lipa, held a press conference in Pristina together with her father, Dukagjin Lipa.

The latter, while mentioning the details of the organization of this year's edition, pointed out, among other things, that Germija Park was not a suitable destination for its realization.

"Gërmia was not our desire to hold the festival this year, it is difficult to organize a festival of such size in this country, we hope that we will organize it next year in an adequate place", said Dukagjin Lipa, among others.

Dua, on the other hand, did not hesitate to share her emotions with journalists, saying that she is looking forward to her performance on the first night of the festival.

"I don't know anything special to say but I wanted to thank you all for the support and love you are giving us every day... I feel so proud to be here that I can perform, I have been thinking about the performance all day, hoping that you like and enjoyed me tonight.

I feel very good to be at home, in my country", Dua said at the press conference.

The "Sunny Hill" festival has also gathered well-known names this year, where, in addition to Dua Lipa, the world-famous Latin artist J Balvon, the famous DJ Diplo, as well as the winner of "Sanremo", the Italian singer Mahmood, will perform.
