“As always we will be hosting a multitude of stages with a range of genres for you to enjoy and explore”, says Music Director, Luke Poulson.
“If you’re looking for a deeper look into the hype surrounding the UK Bass and Grime movements – you’ll find it blowing the roof off our dome. More into the deeper, tribal rhythms of downbeat and techno? Get ready for some perfect sunsets and sunrises. Wanting to experience your first ever trance dance party? You’ll find it deep within our forests. At Quest we aim to explore the full spectrum of both electronic music and live music and spend a lot of time looking for the best local and national talent.”
The newly announced lineup opens with La Mamie’s, the trio of French DJs who have made a name for themselves throwing crazy, disco-laden parties in the clubs of Paris. In their own words, they are on a mission to ‘keep the party alive’. Trust us, they do.
Indonesian duo Bottlesmoker will be bringing their curious collection of custom instruments to the Quest stage. The unmistakable sounds of the melodica, the glockenspiel and toy phones will transport you from the forest of Son Tinh camp to your childhood music room and back again in their whirlwind of spacey pop vibes.
Bringing some seriously soulful vibes are Bangkok artists Pyra and UNDA. Self-produced electro-R&B singer Pyra was named Apple Music Thailand’s New Artist of the Month in 2016. Hanoi locals may recognize UNDA from his 2018 Angels 33 music video shot on Tay Ho Lake. He’ll be providing lyrical delights with his cool brass beat. Also arriving from the City of Angels are DJs Chamapoo and Eddy Frampton.
The Quest Takeovers return also, with two exciting collaborations added to a DJ lineup already overflowing with unbelievable talent. Hong Kong’s ROAM Selectors, Romain FX and MLCH will join Vietnam’s Tok and Viet Anh when the reins are handed over to the funk-loving Fauve Radio Takeover. Singapore’s DJ darling Cats on Crack will join Seoul’s Marcus L for The Council Takeover (the first acts to be announced as part of a broader takeover).
Hailing from Vietnam, is local psytrance hero DJ Thorley, Red Sheep from the Jaunty Maniacs, the frenzied beatboxing duo Loopernatural and Hanoi’s live afrobeat band Zamina. Representing Vietnam’s small, but strong rock scene are iconic Saigon Soul Revival – who rocked the Quest 2017 Main Stage; melodic rock group Empty Spaces and alternative indie-rock band Monoheart, both from Hanoi; as well as Irish singer-songwriter Colin Devaney who now calls Hoi An home.
