Ten international bands will join a host of leading local talent for a day of rock-fuelled mayhem. The 2011 festival will bring together artists from Vietnam, Australia, the UK, Japan, Thailand, Malaysia and China on the main stage and in the all-day DJ tent.

According to a press release from CAMA Vietnam, the performers include Tokyo rising stars Okamoto's, Thai-British rockers The Standards, Australian indie-pop favorites Ball Park Music, Malaysian-Vietnamese four-piece 6789, Chinese rock sensation P.K.14, plus local rock and electronic stars including Rosewood, Recycle, Gibbon Suburbia, Phuong Dang, Tri Minh and Vu Nhat Tan.

Since 2005, Hanoi's first independent music promoters, CAMA Vietnam have brought over 50 international acts from more than 10 countries to Vietnam.

This year, all profits from the full-day event will support conservation group Flora & Fauna International in their efforts to save some of Vietnam's rarest primate species.

FI's wildlife conservation efforts span the globe, with over 100 projects in nearly 40 countries. In Vietnam FFI have been working for over 10 years to conserve two of the rarest animals in the world, the Tonkin snub-nosed monkey and the cao vit gibbon.

Dedicated to the promotion of independent local, regional and international musical talent in Vietnam, CAMA hosts regular shows throughout the year apart from the annual CAMA Festival.
