Their 2013 debut album Perfect World established them as a highly emotional rock band.

The follow-up, 2015’s Coming Up For Air, gave them their second Irish number one, with constant touring confirming their status as a growing force around the world.

After five years and two albums (both number 1 in their native Ireland), the band decided to take some time off.

They will return this year with their third album, and are quietly confident it is the best they have produced so far.

Kodaline will open the three-day Monsoon Music Festival at Hoang Thanh Thang Long. The opening show will see performances by Vietnamese band Vu.x Skylines Beyond Our Reach; electronic rock band ADOY from the Republic of Korea and Danish/Lebanese singer and songwriter Mariyah.

The festival was launched in 2014 by Nguyen Quoc Trung.

Over the past four years, the festival has attracted more than 125,000 audience members to witness 200 artists from more than 20 countries.

Rock legends the Scorpions, Joss Stone and Bond have all featured.
