Four beloved boybands of the 1990s and 2000s - The Moffatts, Blue, A1 and 911 - will perform at a music festival in Hanoi next month.

They will perform at HAY Glamping Music Festival on Aug. 6 in Hanoi's Yen So Park, singing a series of famous hits that were once loved by many.

This will be the first time Blue performs in Vietnam. Formed in 2000, the English boyband consists of members Simon Webbe, Duncan James, Antony Costa and Lee Ryan.

The Moffatts is a Canadian band with four members who are all siblings of the Moffatt family. In their heyday, they were loved by audiences around the world for songs like 'If Life Is So Short', 'Miss You Like Crazy', 'Girl of My Dreams' and others. They have performed 34 concerts, released five albums and sold six million records. The group had performed in Ho Chi Minh City in 1999 and 2021 and created tours combining MV shoots in Hanoi and the northern provinces of Cao Bang and Lao Cai.

Formed in London in 1995, the English pop group 911 consists of Lee Brennan, Jimmy Constables and Spike Dawbarn. They are famous for their sweet and romantic pop songs like 'The Day We Find Love', 'How Do You Want Me To Love You', 'Private Number' and others. This is the second time 911 has come to Vietnam to perform after their first stop in HCMC in 2019.
