Epizode founder talks throwing a festival in Vietnam, this year's immense expansion & what to expect
Epizode debuted last year as a visionary two-week long equatorial-musical adventure outfitted with three elaborately designed stages, a line-up boasting over 100 international acts with 21 hours of daily programming and offered revelers a sublime slice of utopia that left us with tropical dreams injected with a heavy dose of house and techno. With the second iteration just around the corner, this year looks immensely different from its inaugural edition in that it sees the line-up go from acts lesser known to the region to some of the industry's biggest players, many of whom will be making a very rare appearance in Asia. Âme, Carl Cox, Marcel Dettmann, Nicole Moudaber, Guti and Mathew Johnson, Luciano, Chris Liebing, Dixon, Loco Dice, Dubfire, Luciano and Pan-Pot will all head to Vietnam for the hedonistic house and techno festival by the sea. Berlin based underground electronic music brand HYTE has also announced that it will host a stage at the sophomore edition of the festival and it brings with them even more heavyweights like Minus label boss Richie Hawtin, Peggy Gou, wAFF, Bambounou, Roustam and Yaya and still that doesn't bring us to half of the total acts that will play over the 10-day festival.
