The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is organising the Thailand Cultural Music Festival from 25 to 26 May at Pattaya’s Bali Hai Pier.
The festival’s line-up includes local folk music performances, contemporary musical acts and a live stage with music by popular bands and singers, with action taking place across four stages over two days.
Artists headlining the main stage include: Rasamee Isan Soul, an Isan group blending local music with jazz, rock, and soul; Paradise Bangkok International Band, a hybridised roots band that mixes traditional Thai melodies with blues and folk rock; Mocca Garden, a modern Reggae-ska band with pop, funk, rock and Thai country musical influences; Thai rappers, UrboyTJ and Day from mega-group Thaitanium, and legendary Thai jazz maestros Infinity.
There will also be folk music performances on the three smaller stages showcasing up-and-coming local bands and singers.
Thai gastronomy will be on display at a food fair featuring culinary delights from each of Thailand’s four main regions. Other activities include booths for face painting and tattoo stickers.
