Infected Mushroom is no stranger to the electronic dance music (EDM) scene, but for the first time the Israeli duo will bring their psy-trance hits to a stage in Vietnam.

They will headline a DJ set on October 24 at the Escape Music Festival in Ho Chi Minh City, arriving just in time to get into the Halloween spirit.

When asked if they have any tricks or treats to dish out to festival attendees, musician Amit Duvdevani, better known as Duvdev, said they have some surprises in store.

"When we do a DJ set, we have a lot of tricks up our sleeve that we do not usually play live," Duvdevani said. "It is going to be interesting to see what we are going to play because it depends on the mood and the party. I know I will be in a very good mood when I arrive in Vietnam."

Duvdevani and fellow musician Erez Eisen, the other half of Infected Mushroom, met in 1996 and have built a large catalogue spanning nearly 20 years.

"Basically, we are going to play a lot of new and a lot of old songs," Duvdevani said about their headline set at the upcoming show. "We mix it up because people do not always have the chance to see us, so we cannot play only new and cannot play only old. It is going to be a mixture of everything in between."

Duvdevani expects "a really good party coming into Sai Gon", and he said another essential activity when visiting a new country is to try the local food.

"I always eat the local cuisine in another country, and I will definitely try a bowl of pho because it will be our first time in Vietnam," he said.

The Escape Music Festival will be held at Phu My Hung, District 7, HCM City. For more information visit
