VietNamNet Bridge – In three years, the merry expats behind last weekend’s Quest Festival have built it into something improbable, a force bringing sleepover music festival culture to Viet Nam and infusing it with Vietnamese culture. They also throw quite a party. Max Marshall has the story. It was barely 10am when Ngoc Le began to see expats in their costumes again. Ngoc was sitting at the Quest Festival headquarters tent, wearing her green volunteer t-shirt and watching the second day crowd. She looked out at a queue of Australians, Americans, Irishmen and South Africans in neon tights, tie-dye shirts, fuzzy jumpsuits and/or full body makeup, and then she grinned. “I feel like I’m living in another country,” she told me. Quest is held at the Son Tinh campsite, an hour west of central Ha Noi. To the uninitiated eye, though, it probably looks like another planet. From November 4-6, this year’s three-day retreat featured 70 DJs, 35 bands, dozens of New Age workshops, a film contest, swimming, an obstacle course, a costume contest, a few pyrotechnic displays and a small parade. For the 3,000 attendees, the diversions blended into something almost psychedelic. But where many expats are familiar with this wild kind of spectacle, Quest is a foreign concept in its host country.
