Quest Festival is Vietnam’s only weekend-long camping festival. Held just a 40 minutes drive from Hanoi, Quest brings together locals, expats and visitors in a celebration of music, dance, adventure and freedom of expression.

The festival connects people with nature as it’s held in breath-taking scenery on the shores of a lake with a backdrop of mountains. It has a magical vibe, this gathering of beautiful people, who are smiley, creative and free.

Quest is a merge of Western and Eastern cultures, connecting local and international artists. The weekend is fully scheduled with diverse mix of quality DJs and bands from Vietnam and the rest of the world.
Throughout the festival many talents perform and give workshops such as fire spinning, dancing, painting and yoga as well as a cinema tent screening local films.

There is always something exciting to see as the venue is filled with art installations, exhibitions and light visuals. The costume theme of this year is “monster” so the fashion makes the event even more colourful.
This inspiring weekend ends with a fire ceremony, where a massive wood sculpture of a deer is burned together with fire spinning.

If you’re going to Vietnam keep an eye out for Quest Festival as it is definitely worth a visit.
