“Last year, the second edition of Epizode already achieved global recognition due to festival’s specific concept that blends music and art together, and emanates the vibe many people talked about. Moving boundaries and bringing global electronic music trends and top quality performers to Asia, stays our all-time goal, so this year we count more than 130 names on the lineup. Supporting the development of the regional scene and engaging with the community is a priority, so for this edition, we’ve extended the Asian and Australian lineup. We invested even more resources this year to grow the art colony, to make Epizode³ even bigger and crazier, aiming to be a bridge between the West and the East, while providing the ultimate fun. We invite all party goers and travelers to forget everyday life and get lost in Epizode³ electrifying universe, in the west coast of Phu Quoc’s beach and jungle paradise”, said the Epizode³ team.
