808 Festival Yangon 2019 | Myanmar
Years after years of success in Thailand had made 808 Festival a staple in all of our hearts. Since it’s origination, 808 had expanded its reach to Myanmar and kept the revelers of Yangon in check for the last 3 years. Now, the 4th edition of 808 Festival Yangon will take place on Saturday, December 7th at the Thuwunnabhumi Event Park.
Back in 2018, 808 Festival Yangon welcomed a plethora of top-tier DJs from around the world that included names like W&W, Andrew Rayel, Black Tiger Sex Machine, JOYRYDE, and Lucas & Steve. It was a party to remember, and this year’s line-up will likely be of the same caliber, if not greater. As of now, only 1 name had been announced as a headliner so far. But given that the one name we mentioned is Skrillex, not many of us would want to miss out on joining the god of Dubstep himself for a mosh pit.
