This is the second time the opening time of the festival has been adjusted this year.

The biennial festival was initially slated for April 1st to 6th, but then postponed to August 28th due to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

The information was released by Chairman of Thua Thien – Hue provincial People’s Committee Phan Ngoc Tho at a meeting at Hue Festival Center on July 21st.

According to the Hue Festival Centre, the adjustment was made in consideration of other activities to be held to mark the 75th National Day (September 2nd) and 60 years of the Hanoi – Hue – Saigon relations.

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 across the country./.
