Maho Rasop Festival: Bangkok's Brand-New International Indie Music Festival Experience
If you’re a big fan of alternative music, then you probably know how difficult it can be to catch a live show of your favorite Indie artists in Bangkok. It’s not every day that a Thai promoter decides to bring in one, that’s why every performance of both local and international Indie artist in Bangkok instantly becomes mandatory and ticket purchase becomes imminent.
Indie concerts are considered a rare event in Bangkok, let alone an entire Indie music festival. That was until three of Bangkok’s leading promoters like HAVE YOU HEARD?, Seen Scene Space, and Fungjai decided to collaborate and bring all the Indie music enthusiasts a one-of-a-kind experience under the name “Maho Rasop Festival”.
As each promoter specializes in artists from different localities, Maho Rasop Festival presents an exhilarating line-up of up to 15 bands, both local and international. Currently, 12 artists of been officially confirmed by the festival including The Vaccines (UK), Miami Horror (Australia), PREP (UK), Sunflower Bean (USA), 大象體操 Elephant Gym (Taiwan), Solitude Is Bliss (Thailand), Wang Wen (China), VACATIONS (Australia), Lucie too (Japan), Gym and Swim (Thai), temp. (Thailand), and SOLE (Thailand). As for the other 3 bands that will fill out the line-up, we’ll have to wait and see what kind of surprises the promoters have in store for us.
