HÀ NỘI — A festival for fans of rock, hiphop and street arts will be held tomorrow at Hà Nội Creative City.
School of Mosh 2017 is a festival dedicated to the young generation. The outdoor event, to run for a day, will be packed with activities such as live rock, hardcore, rap, beatbox, metal, hip-hop and DJs, as well as street art performances including skateboarding, BMX, graffiti, and flea market vendors.
The event is the brainchild of First and Last Records founder, Todaka Koremoto, and was organised for the first time last year.
This year’s festival promises to be even bigger. It has attracted bands from Thailand, Japan and South Korea — and from throughout Việt Nam itself.
The festival will feature The Coastguards (melodic hardcore punk), Blindside (beatdown hardcore), Only The Last Song (chaotic hardcore punk), Drop Up 25 (pop punk) from Japan; 13 Steps (thrash/hardcore) from South Korea; and Monument X (old school hardcore punk) from Thailand.
The Vietnamese bands will include Sick Fellows, Proportions, Morning Waits, Windrunner, 18+, Yukemuri, Bloodshed, SinX and Razor Leaf.
It is expected that more than 500 young people will converge on Hà Nội Creative City to mosh out on the live music and activities.
It runs from 9am to 10pm at Hà Nội Creative City, 1 Lương Yên Street. — VNS
