Hold on to your seats: Wu-Tang Clan, aka the most influential hip-hop group of the 90’s, are coming to Bangkok.

A rep from local promoter Godzillionaire Entertainment confirmed today “members” of the legendary New York crew will be helming Golden Axe Festival which takes place on Friday-Saturday, May 19-20.

We still don’t know where or what kind of genre event it’s set out to be (if it is) but we’re most likely looking at a hip-hop/dance festival given the promoter’s CV, which includes Axtone Stage Live in Bangkok and White Culture Yangon.
