Hoi An Chronicles (3 Day Music Festival)
Studio Adventure Collective are taking off on another freewheeling expedition on April 28 – May 1, 2023 for Hoi An Chronicles, with their sights and sounds set for Blush Beach Club. With an impressive mix of both established and emerging artists, party-goers are in for an unforgettable ride.
The 3-day festival packs a lineup that will take you from new frontiers of world music, hip-hop, reggae, and soul to playgrounds of experimental electronica, all the way into the underground club scene. Join local bands, live acts, as well as regional and international guest performers for this eclectic musical journey played out between two stages: The Yard and The Room. The carefully curated lineup guarantees guests are in good hands.
Headliner Diskonnected is surely no stranger to a grand beachside bash, as a founding member and resident of Taiwan’s Organik Festival. He will be accompanied by Bangkok-based vinyl selector Pichy, Strange Weather and Mihn Club resident Yadin Moha, Seoul mainstay Jesse You, UK DnB whiz Blazin’, as well as fashionable Italian imports Simone de Kunovich and Matisa. Japanese artist MDM Columbia will also be performing live.
A diverse range of other acts round off the program, with an emphasis on homegrown Vietnamese talent. Expect a symphony of genres and styles from local bands like Mắm, Trung Mien, The Gratoners, Noise Psycho, Limebocx, S.E. Project, and Tiny Giant. On the DJ side, fresh faces such as AiLien, Sheereen, and ItsmeNz join reliable faves such as Viet Anh, TrinhNu, Zwi, and Manikk.
Studio Adventure Collective have successfully brought their distinct brand of light-hearted fun and playful energy to several locations across the country. From a centuries-old site in Ninh Binh to the shores of Phu Quoc island and historic An Bang Village, the team have always made it a point to collaborate with local artists, highlighting community spirit every step of the way. It’s no different for this latest outing, with onsite art installations, projection mapping, and whimsical stage design in the works.
Located along the main coastal highway that connects Da Nang and Hoi An, the venue itself is an architectural gem. Designed by Steven Baeteman Studio, Blush Beach Club takes cues from brutalism with its imposing concrete structure opening up to sweeping sea views. Bamboo latticework provides a contrasting motif that casts knitted shadows throughout the day. Overall, it provides the perfect backdrop for the event.
For anyone looking to go on a memorable journey, Studio Adventure: Hoi An Chronicles should not be missed.
