To welcome in the new decade, one of the biggest annual events, Lights 2020, on Nguyen Hue pedestrian mall, will once again take place on New Year’s Eve, with a countdown starting at 8pm.

Lights 2020 will be staged with unique technology and promises to bring many surprises to those gathering on the street and watching from their homes live through HTV3 DreamsTV.

In its third consecutive year, Lights 2020, with the theme “Our people - Our future - Our home”, is expected to be a spectacular party to welcome in the new decade. People will have the opportunity to enjoy a host of special performances marking key milestones in the development of Vietnam’s music and entertainment industry by the country’s leading artists. Along with its official music partner, BillBoard Vietnam, Director Dao Minh Vu hopes to give a new breath of life to arts in the city.

The countdown party is being organized by the Binh Minh Group, powered by Amberstone Media, Capital Studio, and Novel Production, in association with InQ Entertainment. The major sponsor is the Saigon Commercial Bank (SCB), with the co-sponsor being YamahaMusic Vietnam.

With more than 65,000 people gathering together on Nguyen Hue last New Year’s Eve, Lights 2019 proved to be one of the largest events in Vietnam. The country has seen many major developments this year as it continues to raise its profile on the world stage. There is greater recognition of “Our people” as a generous, warm, united, and connected people who are more aware of protecting the environment, and the natural beauty of “Our home”, and Vietnam continues to envision development to build a sustainable society for “Our future” together with innovation and technology, to become increasingly competitive on the world stage and, more importantly, to understand the strength of linking the community with the common goal of preserving our home - our planet.

This year’s line-up of artists features top talent in Vietnam who are breaking the limits of creativity and geography to step out of the country and take their music to the world.

In addition to these top indie, pop, rap, and hip-hop artists, Lights 2020 will also gather artists from other fields who have brought Vietnam closer to the world through international projects in 2019.

In particular, after many years of working as an advocate of the arts, founding numerous organizations, and offering creative education to many Vietnamese families, artist Thanh Bui will introduce a new song on the night to mark the success of Vietnam’s development this past decade and to celebrate the achievements of this past year.

Lights 2020 promises to deliver a night of breathtaking music and dance combined with modern technology and visual effects that have never been seen before on a Vietnamese stage. The show will feature special AR moments both for the audience on Nguyen Hue and also viewers on HTV3-DreamsTV.
