The Futures Forum Keynote with Dugi & Dua Lipa
Room 1 | 16:45–17:45 | Friday
Host: Gordon Masson, iq magazine (UK)
Dua Lipa last year smashed records to become the first UK female to reach more than one billion Spotify streams with a single track (New Rules). The Grammy-nominated singer songwriter has topped charts globally, and was the second most listened to female artist in the world in 2018. Central to her meteoric rise has been a commanding schedule of live shows, so it’s appropriate that Dua visits ILMC on International Women’s Day, where she, and her rock-star father, Dugi Lipa (Dugi), will be interviewed by IQ Magazine editor Gordon Masson.
The father daughter team will be quizzed about the pivotal role that live music has played in building Dua’s career, as well as the demands of life on the road. And beyond Dua’s own touring career, Dua and Dugi will discuss their Sunny Hill Foundation in Kosovo where Action Bronson and Martin Garrix last year joined them for a massive three-day fundraising festival in the Lipa’s hometown of Prishtina.
