Tens of thousands of music fans are flocking to Pattaya Music Festival this month in the eastern province of Chon Buri. The festival is held every Friday and Saturday of the month at stages in several locations in Pattaya, kicking off at 5pm. Entry is free.
Festival goers are more than ready to party after the festival was postponed in March due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Mayor of Pattaya Poramet Ngamphichet attended the festival’s opening event on Friday at the main stage at Central Pattaya Junction. The opening weekend, spanning three stages, attracted a mixed crowd of young, old, Thai and foreign music fans.
The main attraction next weekend (August 12-13) will be held at Jomtien Beach Stage between Soi 7-8. Friday is a public holiday – Mother’s Day – in Thailand, so it’s expected to be bustling.
The third weekend of the festival (August 19-20) and fourth weekend (August 26-27) will be held at Pattaya Central Beach stage.
