Ahead of this festive event, had the opportunity to speak with Zia Amanullah and his daughter Fareeha Amanullah, who is lead organiser of the event. Their family have been organising Eid festivities for several years, with the support of their friends. This year, the organisers saw "a need for a larger gathering with entertainment". As such, this upcoming celebration features a multi-course buffet and a live Qawwali performance of Sufi inspired music on stage as the main attraction.

Regarding their expectations for the event in Leudelange, Zia and Fareeha said they hoped it would "showcase the similarities and common goodness of our humanity". They noted that the response so far had been "overwhelmingly positive and multicultural", adding that support from the municipality, their team and participants has been "a very humbling experience for which we're very grateful".

In terms of attendance, there is an approved capacity of 300 and the organisers are "expecting to achieve that figure". A few spaces are still available. The organisers stressed that this is neither a commercial nor religious or political venture: "It's a thank you for the blessings we enjoy, an opportunity to break bread together, listen to soulful music and celebrating all that is good and decent in our human family."
