US indie rock band Thao & The Get Down Stay Down will perform in the ASEAN Pride music festival in Hanoi on June 20, 2015
An all-day music festival featuring acts from across Southeast Asia to raise awareness about lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) issues will be held in Hanoi next month.
The second annual ASEAN Pride music festival, sponsored by the US Embassy, will have the theme “Celebrating Family.”
Artists from the US and around the ASEAN region will take to the stage at the American Club, 19-20 Hai Ba Trung Street, from 1:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. on June 20.
This year’s festival builds on last year’s Pride Festival which celebrated diversity.
It will feature US indie rock band Thao & The Get Down Stay Down, alongside Vietnam’s own transgender pop sensation Huong Giang Idol, Malaysia’s O.J. Law and Thai girl rockers Yellow Fang, Saigon’s COCC.
More than 4,000 people joined the first ASEAN Pride in 2014.
