The Hanoitimes - From November 10 to 12, foreign visitors and Hanoians can enjoy music, art, discovery and magic at Dong Mo, Hanoi.
The first event of its kind in the country, Quest has consistently raised the bar, to the point where it is now one of the preeminent festivals across all of Southeast Asia, drawing international acclaim and praise.
Hanoians will enjoy music at Quest Festival 2017.
Music has always been a strong foundation of Quest Festival, with a host of local and international talent gracing Quest's five stages each year. Representing the diversity of musical talent within Vietnam and across the region, Quest has welcomed a wide variety of acts, performing everything from funk, metal and jazz through to every spectrum of electronic music from house and disco to melodic techno.
Combining over 150 of the very best local and international acts across five beautifully crafted stages, the festival includes cinema, boat tours, workshops, street performances, team activities, live and installation art, and much more.
Surrounded by the splendour of Vietnam's natural wonders at Son Tinh Camp, Ba Vi, Quest is a 3-day escape, a communal celebration of music, arts and interpersonal connection amongst nature.
Festivals are about much more than just music, we believe in sharing ideas and skills. Indulge your yoga cravings, learn how to master the art of fire spinning. Create your own feather earrings or design and construct your own crochet mandala. Whatever your interests or passions, Quest is sure to help you nurture them.
Aerialists, actors, fire spinners, stilt walkers, comedians, and other roving performers will add magic and energy to your experience. All of these will appear at random throughout the weekend, and when you least expect it.
Each year Quest has elevated the guest experience and this year is no different. Expect to be amazed and delighted as we bring five complete stages to life, each designed and built using indigenous materials, upcycled and recycled materials as much as possible.
The site will take on even more intricate beauty as we create visual delights through installations, live art and those little touches which let you know you are at Quest.
What good would such a delicious selection of music, arts and performance be without an equally delicious selection of food? As always, we’ve paired up with a range of Hanoi’s finest culinary institutions to keep you fueled for a weekend’s adventures.
Quest will be featuring its own dedicated cinema space. This space will feature adapted film festival content, artist-curated music video showcases, philosophical exegesis of cat videos, and audio-visual workshops.
