2014 Hue Festival attracts 26 foreign arts troupes

Twenty-six troupes from 23 countries and territories across the world will join Vietnamese artists at the 2014 Hue Festival.

With the theme "Cultural Heritage with Integration and Development”, next year’s event will honour Hue’s unique cultural and historical values through artistic performance programmes.


In the framework of the festival, a range of programmes will be held, including an Ao Dai fashion show, “Dem Hoang Cung” (Royal Night) and “Dem Phuong Dong” (Orient Night) events, Royal Court music and dance performances and traditional songs from Hue.


The festival will take place from April 12-20 and is expected to promote the province’s socio-economic development and tourism potential.


The locality welcomed almost 1.5 million guests in the January-June period, earning over 1.2 trillion VND (72 million USD) in revenue, which is 111.32 percent higher than the same period last year.


The province’s preset goal of 2.5 million tourists is likely to be met soon as the number of visitors keeps rising.
