The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is about to stage the Pattaya International Music Festival 2014, along the city’s Beach Road. The event, now in its 13th year, will be showcasing a range of international acts from 21 to 23 March.
Mr. Thawatchai Arunyik, TAT Governor, said, “The festival is now a well-established event that draws music lovers from all over the world. To celebrate its 13th year, TAT has increased marketing and promotions to ensure that everyone, tourists and locals alike know what great bands will be playing. We want to make sure that this is the biggest and best event to date.” With the justified claim to be the longest-running beach music festival in Asia, the free, three-day concert will feature performances by Thai and international artists at four different stages along the Beach Road of Pattaya. The Main Stage will be located next to Hardrock Café, the Blue Stage at CentralFestival Pattaya Beach, the Green Stage at Central Pattaya Beach and the Reggae Stage at the Walking Street in South Pattaya.
Among the leading international and local artists coming to perform this year are Thaitanium, Buddha Bless, Lemon Soup Super Baker, Sugar Eyes, Grace Riya, Sweet Green Soup, Ta-Mone and Gold Red.
Through this event, they hope to create a more positive image of Pattaya. On top of the great music at the Pattaya International Music Festival 2014, there is also a range of fascinating tourist attractions to enjoy in this beach resort city and in the areas around.
I last visited Pattaya in 2011, and was pleasantly surprised at the beautiful local attractions, like Coral Island, I am looking forward to visiting again soon.
