EDM, pop and rock took two nights off as folk, country and Issan music took over Bali Hai Pier for the Thailand Cultural Music Festival.
Chonburi Deputy Gov. Chaichan Iamcharoen opened the May 25-26 festival featuring not only music, but regional food and product booths and even movie stars.
Tasty dishes and products from each of Thailand’s four major regions were on offer, as well as games and activities, such as temporary tattoos, which proved to be quite popular.
Entertainment over the two nights was provided by Anadaman, The Rube, Zack Chumpae, James Jirayu, Pattalung, Mahalai Guachon, Manorah, Kai Liem, Rassamee Isan Soul, GA-PI Dub, and Lamyai Hai Thongkham on Friday; and Lanna Camin, Beel Siengisarn, Infinity Band and an Issan music battle between Sawadee and Puey Perngmang on Saturday.
The finale featured cast members from the hit “Buphae Saniwat” TV series, who sang songs from the film and lingered afterward for autographs.
