HCM City to welcome the New Year with 'Lights 2020'

The Countdown event will celebrate the end of 2019 and the start of 2020 from 8:00 PM, 31st of December 2019 until midnight.

This year in particular, the New Year’s Countdown Lights 2020 event will be staged with unique technology, promising to bring many surprises to the audience on the street and watching from their homes, live through HTV3 DreamsTV.

In its third consecutive year, Lights, with the theme OUR PEOPLE - OUR FUTURE - OUR HOME, Lights 2020 is expected to be the most spectacular party to welcome the new decade.

Along with its official music partner in BillBoard Vietnam, Director - Dao Minh Vu, hopes to give a new breath of art to the city.

The event is organised by Binh Minh Group, powered by Amberstone Media, Capital Studio and Novel Production in association with InQ Entertainment. 

With more than 65,000 people on Nguyen Hue Walking Street last year, Lights 2019 was one of Vietnam’s biggest events. 

This year’s line-up of artists features Vietnam’s top talents who are breaking the limits of creativity and geography to step out of Vietnam and bring their music to the world:

Son Tung M-TP is the first Vietnamese artist to have collaborated with American rapper Snoop Dogg and also the first Vietnamese artist to own 6 music videos with over 100 million views on YouTube;

Vu Cat Tuong – the first Vietnamese artist to appear at Asia Song Festival for two consecutive years;

Ngot Band - Indie Pop 9X artists with a unique musical identity and have touched the hearts of millions;

 

Phan Manh Quynh – a talented singer who “tells stories through music”; Vo Ha Tram – a female artist who is often refered to as "Vietnam’s Broadway singer";

rapper Datmaniac who is making waves with his authentic and heart-felt lyrics – he will also connect other artists on the night such as returning German-Vietnamese Tuimi. Two idols from Vietnam Idol - Trong Hieu and BN, will also be sharing the stage.

In addition to these top indie, pop, rap and hip hop artists, Lights 2020 is also an opportunity to gather artists from other fields who have brought Vietnam closer to the world through international projects in 2019:

Hoaprox - who put Vietnam's Electronic dance music on Asia’s EDM Billboard chart; Artist, choreographer Do Hai Anh, creative director of Saigon Contemporary and Ballet Dance Company (SCBC Vietnam), award winners in international ballet & contemporary festivals; LYRICÍST - Winner of the Asia wide Super24 dance competition will also add to the wonderful array of performances on the night.

This year, the event celebrates the new decade with the presence of future Vietnamese talents. The three members Trong Nhan, Thuy Binh and Yen Khang from Dreams Gen are a generation of some of the country’s finest young talents with a passion for the arts, music, dancing, acting – they also share a strong sense of community and in ‘giving back’ through their passion.

Especially, after many years of working as an advocate of the arts, founding numerous organizations and connecting creative education to many Vietnamese families, Thanh Bui will introduce a new song on the night to mark the success of Vietnam’s development this past decade and to celebrate the achievements of this past year.

Lights 2020 promises to deliver a meaningful night of breathtaking music, dance and the combining of modern technology and visual effects that has never been seen before on a Vietnamese stage. The show will feature special AR moments both for the audience on Nguyen Hue street, but also for viewers on HTV3-DreamsTV.

“Every Countdown event has a positive message to the community. I believe that every big change always starts from each individual, where each small action is an important contribution to a greater result," said the Founder of Amberstone Media, Mr. Thanh Bui.
