HCM CITY — Việt Nam’s biggest underground dance music festival is back for a third edition in December on the picturesque Phú Quốc Island.
Epizode 3 will kick off on December 28 and run through January 8, 2019, providing 11 days of world-class electronic music and art, all taking place on the beautiful beaches of the island in the southern province of Kiên Giang.
The last two editions in 2016 and last year received rave reviews, bringing a lineup of world-renowned electronic music artists to Asia, including Carl Cox, Marcel Dettmann and Ricardo Villalobos, a game-changer for the continent’s dance music scene.
The event’s organisers, Moscow-based Sagrado Corp, said “last year, Epizode 2 attracted thousands people from all over the world, who enjoyed non-stop dancing, arts, sculptures and entertainment. Epizode 3 will continue to invest in the growth of the local community, become a real hub for the music industry and contribute to the development of the emerging Asian underground scene, while setting global music trends in motion.”
Tickets go on sale at www.epizode.com on June 26, with super early bird tickets for the entire festival costing 89 euro (about VNĐ2,350,000).
More details on the lineup will be released in the coming weeks and months, but if previous editions are anything to go by, music lovers in Việt Nam are in for a treat. — VNS
