From niche event to top music festival
About a decade ago, the EDM scene was rather non-existent in Thailand. A few clubs in Bangkok and the most popular holiday locations would occasionally host an international DJ, but it was mostly a rare occasion. That changed when Arsit Prachaseri got involved in Bangkok’s electronic music scene. Returning from his college years in Boston, USA where he performed as a DJ alongside his studies, Arsit began promoting events in Thailand’s capital. Starting out in 2003, the events were rather an insider tip for the hard core EDM community; however, with more international DJs attending, the fan crowds grew and grew. In 2013, Arsit went on to promote the first 808 Electronic Dance Music Festival in Bangkok. The inaugural event had over 3,000 avid EDM fans attending, which was huge for the scene of the city at that time. Those numbers increased more than fivefold in the following years and exceeded 15,000 visitors for the first time in 2016. The recipe for success is a healthy mixture of mainstream acts, such as Armin Van Buuren, mixed with upcoming newbies as well as rather unknown underground DJs. This event is meticulously planned to cater to a wide range of EDM fans, be it trap, techno, house or budstep. Time to get packed for a trip to beautiful Thailand for two days of non-stop dance music with 808 Festival tickets from StubHub.
A music festival in an exotic location
Bangkok is one of the most interesting cities to visit in South-East Asia. Home to roughly eight million people, it is a truly mesmerising combination of Buddhist history and culture with the twists of a modern metropolis. From the bustling Sukhumvit area to the backpacker’s haven around Khaosan Road, the city offers something for every taste and budget. Just as vibrant is the music scene with a wide range of clubs spread throughout the city.
