CAMA Festival

Ok, so technically this is a Hanoi-based event, but with an unparalleled line-up of bands and DJs from China, Australia, Thailand and Vietnam, the fifth instalment of the annual CAMA Festival is worth the flight up north. Beijing’s punk-rock forefathers P.K.14 will headline this year’s main stage with Toyko’s Okamoto’s and Saigon’s own 6789 included on the bill. The DJ tent also features The Beats Saigon’s DJ Jase as well as the likes of Rosewood and Hanoi experimentalist Tri Minh. For a full preview of Vietnam’s largest music festival, check out this month's magazine.

The Belgian Beer Festival 2015

I’m sat in The Cube Bar with Guy Balza and Jan Segers, both members of BeluxCham, the Belgium and Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce. Although it’s left unsaid, they’ve chosen the venue because it stocks three well-known Belgian beers — Stella Artois, Hoegaarden and Leffe. In the same way that the English will talk for hours about football, or the French will verbalise non-stop about wine, so Guy and Jan are talking about beer. Belgian beer.
