What is BridgeFest?
Formerly known as SEA Pride 2016, BridgeFest is a music event promoting social diversity and equality. BridgeFest has been held for five consecutive years and has become a popular community event.
Since 2017, BridgeFest has been co-organized by Oxfam and the U.S. Embassy in Vietnam, in cooperation with REACH, ECUE, and Hexagon JSC. BridgeFest is part of Oxfam’s global campaign “Even It Up” which aims to reduce and eliminate inequality. The message of “Bridging the gap” has resonated with Vietnamese youth and has become the essence of BridgeFest over the past years.
BridgeFest 2020 was devoted to spurring real changes in communities under the slogan “Be the change”, emphasizing the need for young people to get involved in national and global issues while encouraging them to participate in social discussions and community-focused initiatives.
