Why does this sentence need a subjunctive (as stated in the hint)?

Hola Ien

This needs the present subjunctive because it is a command to "ourselves", as in "let's ....":

¡Vayamos a la fiesta! Let's go to the party!

¡Bailemos todos juntos! Let's all dance together!

When you have a command/ imperative for the nosotros form, the form of the imperative is the same form of the present subjunctive. 

Here's the lesson for this.

I hope this clarifies it. 

Saludos
