Best Music Festivals in Thailand

Music festivals in Thailand have what it takes for a festival landscape and seems to grow at massive rates. These music festivals get more popular every year; most events are focused on electronic dance music, but the scene is diversifying.

Up and down the country, other music festivals encompass indie music, local bands, underground DJs, country music and many more. We are also seeing all-day festivals starting to offer guests a break from the music, with food, games, crafts and plenty more to keep you and your mates occupied under the sun.
This festival list is Thailand Event Guide’s overview of some of the best music festivals 2018 in Thailand.
