Hanoi To Host Equation Music Festival
Dong Mo Lake Confirmed As Location
When something works, it works. There’s no denying that Quest Festival has grown to become a huge success since its inception six years ago - possibly to the surprise of many. Now, using a similar template to the guys who put on one of the most eclectic, organic and certainly most scenic music festivals in the world, Equation is set to be staged in the same place, on Dong Mo Lake, next April.
Equation, if you haven’t heard of them, is the culmination of a large group of promoters, parties and artists throughout Asia, who are coming together to put on what they’re calling a ‘celebration of the best music in Asia, the people that keep it alive, and the international artists who call it home.’
Having started in a Hong Kong basement five years ago, the network has grown to include a number of clubs including Saigon’s The Observatory, Safe Room in Bangkok, Mystik in Seoul and Shanghai’s Elevator.
This three-day ‘soul-expanding’ camping event from April 14-16 next year will feature two main stages, with each club invited to ‘take them over’ throughout the arts and cultural festival. DJs confirmed so far include San Soda, Oskar Offermann, Shlømo, Telephones, SONS, Phred Noir, Alex From Tokyo, Andy Hart, Borrowed Identity, Bezier, plus Giegling artists DJ Dustin, Konstantin and ATEQ.
