Local Thai DJ collective Däydang are generating good vibes this Saturday with a daytime rooftop party in the heart of Bangkok’s old town area.
Däydang (pronounced dai-dang), a group of local Thai DJs and producers, are bringing their first daytime party right in the center of Bangkok’s vibrant Chinatown area.
The event, named after the titular group, will be held at Luk Hostel’s cozy Rise Bar rooftop space this Saturday, September 26, 2020. Expect a scenic view throughout the afternoon until late where you can dance to the sounds of underground house music.
The party has a limited capacity of 150 people. Tickets can be purchased from the collective’s website here. Tickets are currently selling for 450 baht, and will be 550 baht at the front door.
Däydang, named after a local herb found in many of Thailand’s historic rituals, was formed with the purpose of representing each DJ’s eclectic styles of music (a combination of Thai and Western influences) and showcasing the country’s burgeoning local talent.
