The German folk band Happy Bavarians will entertain revellers at the world-famous Oktoberfest when they perform at the two-day festival held in Hanoi on Nov. 4 and 5.

The band hails from Munich in Germany – home of the world's largest annual beer festival.

The Happy Bavarians, who dress in traditional Bavarian lederhosen (German traditional leather breeches), tunics and hats, will play traditional tunes, bringing an authentic German flavour to the festival.

Visitors to the festival in Hanoi can enjoy not only traditional German music, but also different types of German beer, including Bitburger, the best-selling beer in Germany .

Traditional German food, including pretzels (a type of baked food made from dough in a unique knot-like shape), Thuringer sausages and rouladen, will also be available during this year's Oktoberfest.

The two-day festival is set to welcome about 5,000 visitors./.
