This year the annual Pattaya Music Festival takes place on June 14 and 15 along Pattaya Beach Road, Pattaya.
Dates were postponed to June, instead of March as in previous years, so that the event is held as part of the 60th anniversary of Pattaya tourism.
Started in 2002, the Pattaya International Music Festival is a celebration of music. It’s one of the largest beach music festivals in the world.
The festival hosts musicians from many music genres. These genres are celebrated on different stages along the beach, namely Universal in Central Pattaya, Moon on Pattaya Soi 4, Galaxy at Bali Hai Pier and reggae in south Pattaya. Every year, the festival uses a different colour scheme for each genre of music. In the past, the trend of colours is that the main stage is usually red and the reggae stage is usually yellow. The main stage is often located beside the legendary Hard Rock Café.
This year, different stages will be set up along the beachfront stretch between the Dolphin Circle Pattaya and Bali Hai Pier. Different genres of music will be featured ranging from Pop, Rock, Jazz, EDM by Thai pop stars, recording artists and local and international bands.
The events kick off at 6pm each day.
