We’re calling it: 2018 is the most exciting year for music fans in Bangkok yet.
The English electro-soul duo will be headlining Mangosteen Music Festival on Wednesday, July 25 at GMM Live House, Central World. Other confirmed acts are local indie poppers The Toys and MEAN.
The new festival is a collaboration between JAMM (Foo Fighters) and Singha Music, so named because of its Southeast Asian origin, and sweet, juicy and wholesome nature packed with benefits that may not be apparent to first-time consumers.

Comprising producer James Hatcher and singer-producer Andy Clutterbuck, HONNE earned international recognition with 2014’s EPs Warm On A Cold Night and All In the Value that won over listeners with the combination of synth-pop, contemporary R&B and soul sounds.
They are set to release a full-length follow-up to 2016’s Warm On A Cold Night this August, revealing new two songs on the last Friday of every month until its release. Their single “Day 1” recently topped the Thai iTunes chart for four weeks. Listen to it while reading a review of their first Bangkok show last year.
Update (May 23): Mangosteen Music Festival announced a second night on Thursday, July 26 due to high demand.
After the event sold out within a few minutes last Saturday and ticket touts have been flooding social media with revolting offers, the festival has added a second night at GMM Live House, featuring HONNE, MEAN and Polycat, who will be taking on The Toys’ slot.
Tickets go on sale Friday, May 25 at 10am through Ticketmelon for THB1,600. Online queueing begins at 9.30am. May the quickest succeed!
