Music acts performing at this year’s Hue Festival will also play at two hospitals in Thua Thien Hue Province.
The Hue Festival Centre has received approval from Hue Central Hospital and Hue Medicine and Pharmacy University Hospital to host the events.
The idea to bring these shows to the hospital stems from earlier successes, when acts for the festival toured the countryside in 2008 and 2010.
According to the festival organisers, the visits will cheer up patients and broaden the accessibility of the cultural values of such an event.
The Hue Festival will take place from April 7-15 to mark National Tourism Year in the North-Central Midlands region.
To date, 36 art troupes from 26 countries and territories have registered to participate.
