VISA FREEDOM FOR KOSOVO TOUR

WHAT? Swiss bands play concerts in Kosovo (Prishtina, Klina, Pejë, Prizren …)

WHY? To show support and love, from the creative scene, to the creative scene. Until every Kosovar can travel how they like we go to Kosovo to show we don‘t like the VISA policy, we want CHANGE! And along that we equip venues.

HOW? You play in a band? Want to go on tour? Be a pionier? Get in contact with lili: lili@diediebe.ch, Lili Vanilly on fb, diediebe on insta. You got some equipment you don‘t use anymore? Give it a second life, give it to Kosovo!

LET‘S DANCE FOR FREEDOM!

LET‘S DANCE FOR KOSOVO.
