Hue Festival kicks off at Kien Trung Palace

The opening ceremony of the 2024 Hue International Arts Festival Week will take place on the evening of June 7th at Kien Trung Palace.

Kien Trung Palace is one of the five important constructions built and preserved by the Nguyen Dynasty. Initially completed in 1923 under King Khai Dinh's decree, it was destroyed during the war after 24 years. Reconstruction began in February 2019, and it officially opened to visitors this February.

During a press conference held on the afternoon of May 9th, jointly organized by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the People's Committee of Thua Thien Hue Province, the Chairman of the People's Committee of Thua Thien Hue Province announced that the Hue Festival Week 2024 will run from June 7th to 12th. This is a series of meticulously planned events, leveraging the support of modern technological equipment such as laser projection, LED matrix, Holograms, and 3D Mapping. Alongside the staged performances, the event promises to bring visitors and locals an extraordinary and modern artistic space, as if "immersing themselves in a dream".
