The third edition of Epizode festival really made its mark. The paradise location welcomed world class DJs, and party people from 79 different countries. They all came to see out 2018 and see in 2019 in style in Vietnam, and left with plenty of magical memories of the sun, jungle clearings, beaches, amazing food and cultural values of the festival. Here we look back at five of the best sets the festival had to offer.
The last few years have seen Sonja Moonear’s stock really rise. She is now right up there with minimal stars like Margaret Dygas and Ricardo Villalobos as someone who can appease the ID hungry heads as well as new, less dedicated ears. She dug deep this year, with slick house sounds and stripped back grooves really getting under our skin and powering us through.

Playing early in the morning is Zip’s forte. The Perlon label boss always serves up sounds that veer from freaky and mind-bending to infectious and tech-edged. He did so again at Epizode on the new Shell Stage and had a hardcore crowd eating out of the palm of his hand. Add in the fact the sun was rising and adding a magical aura to proceedings and it’s not hard to see why this was so talked about.
