Four Vietnamese stars, including hitmaker Son Tung M-TP, will join a host of Asia’s top artists at Viral Fest Asia 2017 (VFA 2017) to take place in Thailand next month.
Son Tung will represent Vietnam in the all-star night on June 3 alongside South Korean superstar Bi Rain, while three other Vietnamese artists will perform at an event dedicated to rising stars of the region one night earlier.
All will converge on Bangkok’s SHOW DC entertainment venue for the event.
Son Tung M-TP, born Nguyen Thanh Tung in the northern Vietnamese province of Thai Binh, launched his career in 2012 after his debut album Con Mua Ngang Qua (Passing Rain) proved an instant hit, winning several awards.
Tung became Vietnam’s first celebrity to reach one million YouTube subscribers in January, with his most popular hit Lac Troi (Lost) having garnered nearly 135 million views as of Tuesday.
Joining him in Vietnam’s convoy to VFA 2017 are female singer Bich Ngoc, runner-up at the 2015 Vietnam Idol reality television singing contest, Min, former member of pop band St.319, and Lynk, a young singer also known for his talent as a composer.
The singers will perform alongside their colleagues from Malaysia, Thailand, Taiwan, Japan, India and South Korea.
Viral Fest Asia is an annual festival celebrating “the best in music and video content from Asia,” according to the event’s description on its website.
With the theme ‘Everybody’s Going Viral’, VFA 2017 follows up on last year’s highly successful inaugural concert in Bali, Indonesia.
The performances will be accompanied by live firework displays and 3D Mapping performances.
