This year's Quest from Nov. 10 to Nov. 12 is gearing up for another great festival.
From Dec. 29 to Dec. 31, Pogo bar (138 Nguyen Dinh Chieu, Mui Ne) together with Jetlag will be hosting the first electronic music festival in Mui Ne.
The experimental music and arts festival, Hanoi Sound Stuff, returns once again with an international line-up experimental musicians and artists.
In the latest mega-festival to hit Saigon, 25,000 Facebook likers are going to pack out the Saigon Exhibition & Convention Center on Jun. 7 to catch EDM demigods Afrojack, Far East Movement and Thu Minh. Tickets have been selling briskly, and babes have been popping up on their Facebook feed with temporary tattoos in compromising places. Sounds like a recipe for a good dance party.

“Do not just be a hipster festival.” This is the command Les Siestes Electroniques founder and curator Samuel Aubert has given himself. Sure, there will be a non-stop parade of beautiful people, sporting ultra-trendy looks. Sure, the music is the cream of the Pitchfork-vetted crop (actually, even a bit more select). Sure, the occasional hipster will trickle in.
