This year’s competition will feature the participation of 30 teams from several countries, including 6 teams from China, Taiwan (China), Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Australia and 24 Vietnamese teams.

In addition to the familiar categories, the highlight of this year's event is the performance on water, which is the first time it will be performed in Vietnam. The teams participating in the category will perform on a large-scale water stage, with 21 iron piles with a height of 1.2-3m, on the west bank of the Han River on the campus of Sun World Danang Wonders.

Especially, the performance of two Chinese 11-year-old brothers, who won the first prize in the Mekong Cup 2017 in China, promises to be one of the most eye-catching performance.

At Gala night held on September 2, the audience not only enjoyed the excellent performances of the contestants, but were also treated to a music party, with the appearance of many famous singers such as Dan Truong, Isaac, Jack and K-ICM.
