As the festive season rapidly approaches and 2016 draws to an end, it leaves the best of us trying to string up plans to create what we hope to be, the best New Years Eve we’ve had to date. Looking to do something outrageous? This festival is one for the born travellers, the sun seekers and those that love to get lost in a deep cultural exchange and a vibrant artistic gathering, on the most spectacular white sand beaches on the Vietnamese island of Phú Quốc.
Epizode Festival will be the largest sea festival in Southeast Asia in 2017, it will boast its use of environmentally friendly materials and will begin on the 31st of December and last until the 14th January – a FULL two weeks. Along with its music, Epizode will also host a range of sporting activities too. The island boasts some of the most picturesque scenery and is the ultimate escape to bask in the sun, with high temperatures all year round.
The first wave of acts have now been released and the festival hopes to bring a slice of some of the most underground house and techno, with a unique offering of DJ’s from around the world. Many uprising stars are billed on the line up with a tasty offering of big names including the likes of Wagon Repair and Crosstown man Konrad Black, tech titan Julian Perez, LIEs boss Ron Morelli, Aus’s house talent Sei A, dub techno stars Youandme, Italian hit makers Fairmont and Leftroom Record boss Matt Tolfrey. With the organisers of this festival hailing from Moscow they’ve spent a decent amount of time talent scouting from the best clubs and parties around.
The team executing Epizode used to work for a range of event brands, including Space Moscow, GIPSY, Konstruktor and KaZantip Republic, they hope to bring their experience to the island of Phu Quoc, to create one of the most talked about music festivals across Southeast Asia.
