Ho Tram Resort Casino Vietnam plays host to leading EDM act’s only Vietnam appearance

Ho Chi Minh City, 11 August 2015: The Ho Tram Resort Casino Vietnam, Asia's only beachfront integrated resort, will host a one-night only show from leading trance-trio Above & Beyond on 19 September 2015. The event, co-organised by Escape Music Festival, a local event organiser with numerous high profile acts in its impressive portfolio, and BelieveEvent, is set to get the feet of Vietnam moving when the act takes the stage next month.

The London trio, comprised of Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness and Paavo Siljmaki formed in 2000, and has become a staple of world's top DJ lists ever since. Their mega hit “What It Feels like for a Girl” was remixed from Madonna’s original and took the charts by storm. Follow up efforts have become Billboard top albums, and established the group at the forefront of electronic dance music.  

The Above & Beyond show at Ho Tram Casino Resort will feature all of their hits, promising to bring a whole new experience to the electronic dance music community.

Speaking from a press conference at Ho Chi Minh City's Le Meridien Hotel, Stephen Shoemaker, Chief Executive Officer of Asian Coast Development Limited - the developer of the Ho Tram Strip - said: "When we first conceived the Ho Tram Strip, we set out to establish a new entertainment capital for Vietnam. We have led the way here in bringing international events and tournaments to this country, and we are today announcing yet another landmark event for our property as we bring one of electronic dance music's leading lights to Vietnam."

“Beyond being pillars of the global DJ community, Above & Beyond are recognised composers and song writers who stage productions that have mesmerised audiences the world over.  It's an honor to be bringing them to Vietnam and bringing them to Ho Tram,” said Escape Music Festival Founder Mai Duy Bao.

This is Above & Beyond's first visit to the fast growing south east Asian nation.

Alongside Above & Beyond will be a roster of international and local support acts in a six hour music festival expected to wow up to 6,000 revelers at the beachside site located around two hours from Ho Chi Minh City.  

Tickets will be on sale from 12 August 2015; early bird prices start at 550,000 VND for the first 1,000 tickets and will start at 800,000 once those are sold. Packages including transportation and accommodation will also be announced in due course.

Tickets will be available from TicketBox, the Ho Tram Resort Casino's official website, Escape Music Festival and at various venues around Ho Chi Minh City.
