HÀ NỘI — Young Hanoians can enjoy a music banquet when they participate in "Trip to the Moon"—an outdoor electronic music festival to be held in the capital city’s Hồ Tây (West lake) Water Park this weekend.
The event—part of the Vietnam Electronic Weekend 2018—will present a series of electronic music performances with a combination of traditional and modern features, the organiser, Connected Agency, said on Facebook.
The festival seeks to combine traditional elements such as the lion dance, starlight procession and ethnic musical instruments with the young and modern spirit reflected in electronic sounds—the music that is dominating music charts over the world.
Entitled VIEW 2018, the third annual Trip to the Moon festival this year will take place on Sunday, with three stages representing the hottest electronic dance music genres in 2018.
Electronic dance music, also known as EDM, dance music, club music or simply dance, is a broad range of percussive electronic music genres made largely for nightclubs, raves and festivals.
On the first stage, Trap-House music will be the focus, combined with the iconic lion dance which is also the major theme of the mid-autumn festival.
With a global standard of sound and lighting laser system, the performance will be directed in the most elaborate and majestic ways to satisfy the audience, the organiser said on its Facebook.
On the second stage, audiences who are fans of Trance music will have a great experience with "Transmission Miniature".
The stage will be designed with folk colours featuring the the image of traditional characters of chú Cuội (bro Cuội) and chị Hằng (sister Hằng) plus the virtual magic of light, accompanying the performance of the favorite of festival Transmission Bangkok—Ben Nicky, the Trance icon from the UK.
The final stage will present Techno.
Yellow Claw—the band of two of the best-selling DJs in the world—will perform at the event and is expected to turn the music stages into a unique “music domain" for the audience.
The Brand of Yellow Claw, Blood for Mercy, has become the "guarantee stamp" for quality and charisma at any events in which they participate, said the organiser. — VNS
