Hundreds of famous singers at home and abroad including Thanh Lam, My Linh, Hong Nhung, Ai Van, Ho Quynh Huong, Quang Linh, My Le, Tan Minh, Khanh Linh, Duc Tuan, Ha Anh Tuan, saxophonist Quyen Van Minh, zitherist Vo Van Anh and more will join the show.

Tickets at costs from VND800,000 (US$40) to VND1 million (US$50) are available at the Vietnam Musicians Association, 51 Tran Hung Dao Street in Ha Noi.

All proceeds from the music show will be donated to flood victims in the central region.
