This Festival on an Island in Vietnam Is What New Year's Eve Dreams Are Made of

BRB, booking my flight.

Suffering from ‘what to do on New Year’s Eve’ angst? (or is it just us?). It’s a minefield of differing opinions, options and budgets. If you’re tempted to escape and combine the big countdown with some travel, then this festival in Vietnam is one of the best best, still-bookable options for New Year 2018/2019.

Breath-taking Epizode³ – one of the most exciting music and art festivals in the world, is set to take place in Vietnam’s blissful island of Phu Quoc, from December 28th 2018 till January 8th 2019.

The festival has completed its insane lineup, with more than 70 names added on the bill including a wide array of planetary house and techno icons, such as [A:Rpia:R], Binh, Craig Richards, Dj Stingray, Guti (Live), Ion Ludwig, Maayan Nidam, Michael Mayer, Pan-Pot, Peggy Gou, Petre Inspirescu, Rhadoo, Steve Lawler, Thomas Melchior and many more!

They will all be shaking exceptionally decorated stages, while bringing the forward thinking sound of the global dancefloors straight to the Phu Quoc beach, where dancing does not stop for 11 nights and days. Whaaaat

‘We invested even more resources this year to grow the art colony, to make Epizode³ even bigger and crazier, aiming to be a bridge between the West and the East, while providing the ultimate fun,’ said the Epizode³ team. ‘We invite all party goers and travelers to forget everyday life and get lost in Epizode³ electrifying universe, in the west coast of Phu Quoc’s beach and jungle paradise.’

The festival venue itself provides an other-worldly experience that gathers thousands of thrill-seekers from all over the world, dancing on the beach among the Instagram gold that is art masterpieces, sculptures and installations. White sand beaches, tropical flora, rugged landscapes and hypnotising sunsets, as well as local cuisine and hospitality, all make this like no other festival in the world, and the perfs NYE music getaway with your BFFs or with bae. What more could you want from your start to 2019?
