Thailand’s Maya Music Festival has revealed the batch of artists to join its third instalment.
The dance festival is set to take place on February 17-18, 2017 at Krating Lai junction, Bang Lamung, Pattaya.
The three acts announced so far are LA-based hiphop group Far East Movement, big room brothers Showtek, and Hardwell’s Revealed Recordings’ rising star Julian Jordan.
Headliners and more a-Maya-zing electronic acts are to be announced in the coming weeks. But tickets are already up for grabs here, with prices starting at THB4,000 and THB6,000 for VIPs in tier one. To book a Table, call (+66)85 225 9225.
Maya Music Festival debuted in 2015 on grounds of the Eleventh Infantry Regiment in Bangkok with Steve Angello and Markuz Schulz helming the festival before relocating to Pattaya. With an addition of a second stage, the 2016 edition saw local artists such as Thaitanium, Da Endorphine, and 25 Hours billed neck-and-neck with the likes of Tiësto and Dash Berlin.
Maya Music Festival is the first of its kind, aiming to give revellers the taste of Thai culture and the burst of sensational Western music. “Our goal is to preserve the stunning ancient Thai art,” the people behind the festival express, “then show it to the world and combine it with modern day music to create a mega festival for the world to join.”
