HCM CITY — Dozens of singers, dancers and musicians will perform at the Music Fest concert in HCM City tomorrow.
The event will feature among others pop stars Đàm Vĩnh Hưng and Hồ Ngọc Hà.
Young pop idol Sơn Tùng M-TP, winner of 2017 SBS Pop Asia Best Solo Release award from the Australia-based SBS PopAsia music radio, will also perform.
Tùng began his career in 2011 in HCM City, quickly becoming a phenomenon in the industry.
His major hits include Em Của Ngày Hôm Qua (You Come from Yesterday), Cơn Mưa Ngang Qua (The Rain) and Không Phải Vừa Đâu (Nothing Common).
His music video Âm Thầm Bên Em (Stand By You) was viewed more than three million times in one day on YouTube in 2015.
He was nominated for the 2015 MTV Europe Music Awards (EMA) Best Worldwide Act.
His latest video, Lạc Trôi (Drifting), achieved a new record by attracting nearly five million views on YouTube in just one day after its release last January, making Tùng, a native of Quảng Bình Province, the year’s outstanding artist.
The concert will also feature Vietnamese-American singer Tóc Tiên and the pop band Da Lap.
Singers will perform bolero, pop, dance, and electric music.
They will perform solo and in groups with support from dancers and musicians from the HCM City School of Dance and Hoàng Thông Group.
“More than 20,000 free tickets are on offer to young people in HCM City and neighbouring provinces,” the show’s producer, Vương Mỹ Phụng, said.
Music Fest, to be held at the 7th Military Zone Gymnasium, 202 Hoàng Văn Thụ Street, Tân Bình District, will begin at 8pm. — VNS
