Singer David Lutalo on stage
Songbird Juliana Kanyomozi will be among those set to grace the Uganda Festival to be held in Las Vegas, US.
The festival dubbed "The Summer's Ultimate event", an entertainment and business convention, is annually organised by Ugandans in North America under their umbrella UNAA Causes.
Juliana joins other local artistes like David Lutalo, Naava Grey, Sheebah Karungi, King Saha and Geo Steady, who are all booked to perform. Others include; UK based Uganda artiste, Ang3lina of the “Go down" fame and MInahIzah.
The festival will run under three subsections namely; Entertainment, Business, Festival runway/Clean Water and Adventure.
To host the show will be local media personalities Sophie Tatu and Malaika Nyanzi while New York-based Ugandan model Stacey Aamito will host the runway section in conjunction with Miss Uganda Foundation.
She will oversee designer clothes auctioned. Proceeds from the auction will be used for the clean water fund, a campaign aimed at providing safe, clean and accessible water to Ugandans back home.
The business section of the festival will feature a conference and launch of the entrepreneurship club, that is aimed at bringing together Ugandans in the US to pool together resources for investment in the States and back home. This will be hosted at the Alibi ultra-lounge starting with a power breakfast still at the exquisite Aria resort.
The festival will then embark into a tour and travel/ adventure session where several attractions in Las Vegas have been lined up by the organisers to add a glitter to the four-day event.
Among attractions to be visited include; The 1450 mile-long Colorado river , renowned for its dramatic Canyons, white water rapids and eleven US National Parks. The fountains at the Bellagio are probably the most impressive sight in Vegas.
