The festival is directed by young musician and DJ Tri Minh.

“This will be the first street art festival for the public in Hanoi. And hopefully it will be organized annually. I want to be part of this remarkable initial event, that’s why I volunteered to perform free of charge,” said singer Tung Duong.

Lively and inspiring different art performances in the festival will take place at Ly Thai To Square Garden, from 2.30pm to 9pm.

Ly Thai To Square will be re-decorated with four corners and one grand stage.

At hip hop and modern dance corner, the group Big Toe will perform together with Danish dance theatre group Uppercut.

An experimental corner has been reserved for experimental artiste Dao Anh Khanh and his prominent friends.

At the traditional music and dance corner, Thang Long Ca tru Club will take the lead while the circus and theatre corner’s attractions will be the Vietnam circus and Danish theatre company Batida.

When night falls, a great show on the main stage will be the highlight of the festival. Famous Vietnamese performers like Tung Duong, young talented circus artistes, dancers and famous Danish jazz musicians will present their most inspiring acts.

The Street Art Festival is one of the most important culture programs organized by the Embassy of Denmark, the People’s Committee of Hanoi and the Danish Arts Agency. It is being held on the occasion of the first State visit to Vietnam by the Danish royal family early November.
