Transmission Asia 2018 reveals theme and first wave of performers

World-famous trance festival Transmission has revealed an action-packed new theme and the first wave of lineup performers.

Transmission Asia is returning to Bangkok for the second year on Sunday, March 18, 2018 at BITEC 100, Bangna under the theme The Spirit of The Warrior.

While fans in Asia will be able to take a peek at the exciting new stage once the theme premiers in Prague this November 25, what we know so far is that the story revolves around decoding and mastering the art of ancient warriors and the six virtues that define them: Strength, Vision, Unity, Honour, Discipline, and Courage.

Billed in the lineup is Dutch spearhead and Transmission Asia alum Ferry Corsten, who will be staging Gouryella 2.0, the second chapter to his revival Gouryella project in its unique narrative style.

Joining him is trance’s “bad boy” Ben Nicky who is known for his versatile music style. Bangkok will mark the British hotshot’s second Transmission stint following the Australian edition in 2016.
