The main international star of this year's festival is Rita Ora (Rita Sahatçiu Ora), a British singer born in Kosovo, who has recently been in the limelight of the world scene by performing at the 10th anniversary of Kosovo independence, which she left with her parents as a baby when they moved to London. This will be the first performance of the popular singer in Croatia as well as an invitation to her numerous fans throughout Europe to come and see her in Poreč.
