Voice of Asia (Kazakh: Азия Дауысы, Azïya Dawısı; Russian: Голос Азии, Golos Azii) is a music festival, held annually in Almaty, Kazakhstan. Dozens of acts from all over Asia each take the stage over a period of several days and nights to mime to recordings of several of their hit songs. The usual venue for the festival is the outdoor Medeo speed skating rink, situated on the mountainous outskirts of the Tian Shan, several kilometers away from the Almaty center.

In 2005 the event was suspended due to lack of funds.[1]
