France will remain the primary partner for the festival, which will take place from April 1-6.

With the theme "Cultural Heritage in Integration and Development – Always a New Huế", the biennial festival is expected to feature the diversification of both traditional and contemporary art and cultural performances.

Phan Ngoc Tho, Chairman of Thua Thien-Hue Province's People's Committee, said the festival would feature high artistic and community value.

“It will be a green festival saying no to disposable plastic products," said Tho.

The Hue Festival Centre was co-operating with relevant departments to promote and advertise for the event, especially on social networks, according to Tho.

Troupes participating at the event have previous experience at international festivals and competitions.

The festival will also feature art and music performances by troupes from Thua Thien – Hue and others central provinces, as well as Hanoi, HCM City and independent groups and singers.

The festival will feature an áo dài (traditional dress) display, a food show and artistic performances focusing on the historical royal culture and music and songs of composer Trinh Cong Son.
The event will also provide a chance to promote tourism in the ancient city of Hue and boost socio-economic development.

The Hue Festival 2018 was held with the theme: ‘Cultural Heritage with Integration and Development: Hue - One Destination, Five World Heritages’.

It attracted the participation of nearly 1,400 artists and professional actors including 388 from 24 international art troupes and nearly 1,000 from across the country.

Thousands of amateur artists also took part in the event, which welcomed more than 1.2 million visitors.

The Hue Festival is a biennial celebration that has been taking place since 2000, and is one of the biggest cultural events in the country.
