Fans were disappointed. A little north in Khao Yai we saw the first ever Mystic Valley Festival two years ago in a beautiful valley far away from the big city. The location is an excellent choice. The challenge organizers experienced was the distance to get there with so much going on in Bangkok. It is unclear if Mystic Valley will return to the festival music landscape.

Big Mountain Festival 2019

Dates: Usually around September.

Big Mountain is a massive music festival from GMM Grammy presenting favorite Thai artists and bands. The festival attracts a substantial Thai crowd travelling to the festival to see their favorite artists on stage. Artists who appeared here are Potato, Paradox and Peck Palitchote.
