(RockPassion.Vn) – As we informed, on Saturday 8 May 2010, the CAMA festival in partnership with Dance4life program took place at American Club, rocking Hanoi with its 4th charity music festival.
American Club was continuously chosen by CAMA for its international music festival – which included a spectacular line up of artists from many countries. The main stage was equipped with the professional system of sound and light of Fantasies. Specifically, Masaki Azuma, a Japanese director of sound, assumed responsibility for the sound of festival.
The festival occured succesfully with a big number of international and Vietnamese audiences. It started at 1:00p.m with successive performances of Jazz, DJ, Hiphop….. And from afternoon to night, the main stage absolutely reserved for rock bands.
In addition, there was a non-stop DJ tent, a wide variety of international food and drinks, and entertainment and games for adults and children alike.
Here are some great moment of CAMA festival caught by RockPassion’s photographers:
Up Dharma Down – the post rock/experimental band from the Phillipines. They rocked the festival with greatest hits from their albums “Fragmented” and “Bipolar”.
Recycle – a representative of Vietnamese rock band. Young and energetic, the guys keep seeking to add new and stronger elements to their original alternative sounds that definitely rock the crowd.
Molice – a quartet from Japan, with elements of ‘70s punk energy, ‘80s new wave sensibility, and ‘90s college radio guitar all get mashed in there, topped with gutsy female vocals. Although they sang in Japanese, the audiences were enthusiastic and sang after them.
Dengue Fever took on the Cambodian rock sounds of the 60s which makes them one of rock’n’roll’s most unique success stories. They drew enthusiastic crowds in CAMA festival. On Sunday 16 May 2010, they will bring their own music to rockfans in Ho Chi Minh city at liveshow “Mayhem in May”.
Ngu Cung (or Pentatonic) – a quintet from Hanoi hailed as one of the most technical and more original bands in Vietnam for their pick of progressive rock/metal. They inspired strongly both international and Vietnamese rockfans.
Queen Sea Big Shark from China was the last band performing in CAMA festival. They impressed the audiences with their own indie rock. And their performance also ended the festival.
The CAMA festival 2010 in Hanoi is really an imposing and memorable event. We look forward to the next CAMA festivals in Vietnam!
