Pattaya International Music Festival Hits Town This Weekend


Pattaya gears up for another music extravaganza

The 2012 Pattaya International Music Festival, considered to be one of the largest beach music festivals in Asia, will take place from Friday, April 27 to Sunday, April 29.

Five stages have been erected for this year’s event: The Reggae stage will be in South Pattaya (next to Walking Street entrance); outside Royal Garden Plaza is the Techno stage, while Central Festival Pattaya Beach will host the GMM Z stage with many of the headline acts.  The open ground in Central Pattaya (next to Hard Rock Hotel) will be used for the Variety stage and Soi 4 Beach Road will feature the Pop, Easy bands.

A plethora of Thailand’s top music stars including Klear, Potato, Buddha Bless and Paradox will be accompanied by international music acts from around Asia to create another standout event for all Pattaya music lovers.

The music will start each day at 6 p.m. and go on until midnight, so expect the Beach Road area to be heavily congested throughout these times over the weekend.

As in past years, a collection of food and merchandise stalls will be sited all along Pattaya beachfront, so even if you decide not to check out the music you can still enjoy the atmosphere of what promises to be another fun-filled party weekend in the city that never sleeps.
