Following a massively successful event in 2014, together with Retox Sessions and Contango, 808 Festival is proud to announce its return on Wednesday December 9th, 2015. The event will once again take place at the BITEC Convention Centre in Bangkok, Thailand with doors opening at 5pm. Last year saw 808 Festival in Thailand expand to include the addition of a second stage and a lineup that included more underground music, and the event returns this year with the same format but boasting a star-studded lineup that is jam-packed with Grammy nominated producers and the electronic dance music industry’s biggest DJs.
The 808 Arena is the event’s main stage that is dedicated to EDM and boasts a lineup that is massively bigger than it’s ever seen before. On the bill are some of EDM’s heaviest hitters, including Grammy nominated Armin van Buuren, Axwell /\Ingrosso who make up two thirds of the now defunct Swedish House Mafia and Oliver Heldens. Whilst now added to that are DJ Mag Top 100 star and OWSLA artist Porter Robinson as well as EDM supergroup Jack Ü aka Skrillex and Diplo.
The Sunn Arena, previously the Retox Area, is 808 Festival’s exclusive underground dance music concept stage. Some of the most exciting names from around the world are slated to play this year, including Ibiza resident Jamie Jones as well as Dirtybird Records label boss Claude VonStroke.
For only its third year, the unveiling of such a prolific lineup signifies that 808 Festival has undoubtedly become the largest and most diverse one-day festival in Thailand, marking a progression in Thailand’s dance music community and putting it on the map as a destination for music lovers in the region.
Tickets are now available for purchase on the official website for 2,500bath. They can also be purchased in conjunction with tickets for a TBA show on the 29th of December for ?4,600. Both events are for ages 20+.
