After a break of 13 years, the National Festival of Pop Bands will be held in Ho Chi Minh City from January 5 to 15 by the Ministry of Culture and Information’s Department of Performing Arts.


Fourteen pop bands and rather traditional sounding outfits will spend the 11 days competing for the unofficial title of Best in the Land.

Nearly half of the contestants will come from that hub of entertainment known as Ho Chi Minh City, namely Ly Duoc, Minh Man, Trong Dong Club, 126 Music Club, Bong Sen Traditional Music and Dance Theatre and a band from Military Zone 7.
