[RockPassion.vn] – As an annual event in the summer time, Festival CAMA 6 has been officially announced on the media mass with participation of worldwide artists, in many music genre including rock, hip-hop, reggae and electronic. This June 2nd, five international groups and four local acts will rock Hanoi at the all-day international music event, CAMA Festival 6.
The biggest event of its kind in Indochina, CAMA Festival 6 keeps getting bigger, this year attracting Japanese rock behemoths Electric Eel Shock to headline the event, a band who make the top billing at festivals anywhere in the world. They’ll be ably supported by one of the most important acts in the Chinese punk rock scene, Carsick Cars, fresh from a festival spot at SXSW as part of an American tour. Jurassic 5’s Akil the MC needs no introduction as bonafide Hip Hop royalty who’s been promoting the genre throughout Asia for a number of years. The Philippines’s Turbo Goth bring a touch of Electro Dance experimentalism to the festival, with a stage show which is as much a visual feast as a workout for beat-loving feet. Rounding up the international section of the event is Poubelle International from Hong Kong. They’re the undisputed kings of the island’s underground indie scene and are more than ready to take their angular art punk rhythms to the rest of the world.
On the local front, things are just as diverse. CAMA are delighted to be able to provide a stage for Vietnamese femi-rockers Go Lim to showcase their obvious talent. This inspiring group, who defy cultural pre-conceptions, just keep on getting better and better. They’ll be joined by Zamina, a group whose Nigerian heritage is healthily apparent in their Asian take on Afrobeat rhythms and Reggae musicality. Completing the line-up is Machete.Sex.Mix, the contribution of Hanoi’s expat scene to the heady mix that the CAMA Festival line-up represents. Their sparse, industrial electro sound has filled many a dark club and provides the perfect background music with which to bang your head.
As with the last 5 CAMA Festivals, this year’s event promises to be absolutely huge, cementing the festival’s status as Indochina’s biggest independent music event. On June 2nd 2012, the American Club 19–21 Hai Ba Trung, Ha Noi is the only place to be for those who love music.
