Update: Jan 06, 2014
The 2014 Hue Festival’s organising board announced 45 international art troupes from 35 countries have already registered to attend the celebration’s eighth iteration, taking place from April 12 to 20.

Themed “Cultural Heritage with Integration and Development”, the festival forms part of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ East Asian-Latin American cultural exchange.

This is the first time Vietnam will welcome world famous art troupes including Brazil’s Sururu Na Roda music band, Japan’s Bati-Holic, and the Palestinian folk dance troupe Asayel.

Domestic and foreign organisations have defied economic difficulties to ensure Hue Festival 2014 has received its required VND20 billion funding.
