Croatian all-girls pop-rock band Luminize, made up of four girls from Crikvenica in Croatia – Marcela, Matilda, Irena and Tea – had the chance to sing for the Dutch King’s birthday last weekend.
Luminize, who moved to live in the Netherlands to pursue their career, was invited to perform at the ‘The Life I Live’ festival on Kingsday in honour of the King’s birthday in The Hague. More than 300,000 people attended the festival.
Each year on 27 April the Dutch celebrate King’s Day (King Willem Alexander’s birthday) by organizing music festivals, fairs and events. It is also a national holiday in the country.
Luminize’s invitation to perform came after a successful tour on which they promoted their debut album ‘All Or Nothing’ and after performing in Ziggo Dome as openers for Golden Earring in front of 17,000 people.
Luminize regularly plays at venues and festivals in the Netherlands and throughout Europe, and are known for their dynamic and powerful live performance. Their singles ‘Get it Back’ and ‘Kill it with Love’ led to international deals with Universal Music, AT bookings and the Swedish X-Level.
