Sofia Pride to take place online this year

The event will start at 8pm EEST live on the Facebook channel of Sofia Pride, as well as on the pages of the GLAS, Bilitis and LGBT Youth Organisation “Action” organisations.

Sofia Pride teased the news about her performance with a blurred-out pic yesterday before confirming it today.

Other musicians supporting the annual march for equality include as Ruth Koleva, Mila Robert, Preya, and Ivo Dimchev.

That comes after last year’s star-studded line-up, when famous singers such as Galena, Mihaela Fileva and the 2018 Eurovision winner, Netta, performed in the event.

Around 6,000 attendees marched in the Pride parade last year. A total of 25 diplomats and representatives of international organizations and foundations showed their support for it.               

Victoria teases upcoming hit alright.

Earlier this week, Victoria teased her upcoming song, called alright., which will debut on 24 June.

The singer revealed on Twitter that she wrote the song during the Eurovision songwriting camp in January. She is also the director of the upcoming video, alongside Victoria Karakoleva. 

The song will premiere on all streaming platforms on 24 June. Due to it being released before 1 September 2020, it won’t be eligible for entry to Eurovision 2021.

Victoria to represent Bulgaria in Eurovision 2021

BNT, the Bulgarian national broadcaster, selected Victoria to represent the country at the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 before it was cancelled.

Her team confirmed her planned return to Eurovision 2021 in late March, but she will have to participate with another song. She was due to perform the song “Tears Getting Sober” in Rotterdam, which was one of the pre-contest favourites.

Victoria and her team initially called for the EBU to allow artists to perform their already selected songs next year. At the time, she noted in an Instagram post: “Tears Getting Sober is a project that means the world to me as an artist and to the great team behind it.”
