On Oct. 17, Thailand’s 808 Festival announced its return for its fifth consecutive year. Expected to be bigger an better than ever before, this year’s 2017 edition will be delivering some of the most reputable names in dance music as it returns to Bangkok’s Oasis Arena on Dec. 9 and 10.
This year’s first wave of acts have recently been announced and include Above & Beyond, Flosstradamus, Ghastly and Kayzo, with a huge second phase to come that will mix up house, techno, bass and EDM heavyweights to make sure there is something for all music lovers.
Offering up a fine balance of underground and more mainstream headliners, the likes of Jack U and Richie Hawtin, Jamie Jones, Sharam and Claude von Stroke all played over previous years so expect more of the same in 2018. The venue for all this is Oasis Arena at Show DC, a place for visually spectacular events with immersive light and sound on a grand scale.
Arsit Prachaseri, executive producer of 808 Festival stated, “We bring together the biggest and best talent from across the globe for what is one of Thailands showcase electronic music events. Each year 808 Festival keeps growing and bringing ever more exciting acts to the region before anyone else.”
The stage is set then for another all encompassing and forward looking festival that offers an experience like no other in the whole country of Thailand.
