U DAY 2018 is an international music festival promoting the values of intercultural harmony, dialogue, and spiritual unity. In celebration of the World Interfaith Harmony Week, musicians, artists, visionaries, activists and representatives of diverse faiths and worldviews will come together to celebrate our common humanity and present an optimistic vision for the future. The group will contain religious representatives, including Thai and Tibetan Buddhist monks, indigenous leaders of North and Central America and Australia, Sikhs, Bahai’s, Hindus, Jews, Orthodox and Western Christians, and Sufi Muslims. Representatives will carry and bring into sacred convergence Torches of Peace, Compassion and Unity. The events will begin with ceremonies at Lalibela, a registered UNESCO world heritage site known for its 900-year-old monolithic rock-hewn churches – built by angels according to the Ethiopians, as a proof that God exists. In Addis Ababa, the group will mark U DAY on 3 February by joining a very special gathering honoring the United Nations World Interfaith Harmony Week at the headquarters of the African Union in Addis Ababa, together with Ambassadors of all nations. The evening will be the occasion of the grand U-Nite cultural program by international artists and speakers. On February 4th there will be an Interfaith Cultural Event held at the National Theatre in Addis Ababa. Key elements of these events will be webcast to invite the support and participation of people of good will across the globe. U DAY Festival Ethiopia 2018 is produced by UNITY EARTH with the cooperation of URI-Africa and the Inter-Religious Council of Ethiopia. http://udayfestival.org/ethiopia-2018/
