The concert, organized by the Tourism Authority of Thailand, city hall and Rak Chart Management Co., is designed as a showcase for Thais to hold concerts with modern sound systems and electronic equipment.
At a March 15 planning meeting, Pattaya Permanent Secretary Office head Wuttipol Charoenpol said the event will offer music, song contests and a deejay competition with a top prize of 20,000 baht.
(L to R) Kittima Pathisama, Asst. Secretary to the MD; Karaket Puakboonrod, producer; and Edward Kiti, MD of Elite Entertainment announce the upcoming festival.
First held in 2010, the Zoom festival took a year off because of last year’s nationwide flooding. More than 50 artists will appear, including well-known deejay Taboo of the Black Eyed Peas, and Thai artist Dome Parkonlum.
Tickets are 100-300 baht for the event, which plays out on three stages from 3 p.m. until 4 a.m. More information is online at Zoom-Festival.com.
