Festival Description

The National Folk Songs Festival was launched in 2005 as a biennial festival. The competitive singing festival of national musicians aims to promote and preserve traditional folk songs from throughout Vietnam. The participants include professional and amateur singers.
Qualifying rounds take place throughout the country prior to the festival and determine the best singers from 6 regions. The festival serves as the final round of the festival — much the way competitive festivals in the UK are arranged.
The festival provides an opportunity for making themselves known or to further enhance the projection of their talents.

Festival Dates March 13 - April 24, 2011
