Although popular tourist destinations like Silom and Khaosan Road will be dry during Songkran celebrations for 2019, there are still a few festive events good for revelers looking to get wet (and maybe a little wild) on the agenda this year.
Here are some of our picks.
S2O Songkran Music Festival, April 13—15 at Live Park Rama 9
For three days, an outdoor space out on Rama IX Road will see music talents play to crowds, live — performers like English dance music icon Fatboy Slim, Dutch DJ Tiesto, and American electronic house DJ Steve Aoki will be hitting the stages.
The event will run from April 13 through April 15 at Live Park Rama 9. Tickets are available online.
Atlantis Water Festival, April 12—15 at RCA
Bangkok’s entertainment district RCA will celebrate Songkran with a four-day, fun-filled festival featuring performers such as Dutch producer Cesqeaux, techno musician Mike Cervello from Amsterdam, and DJ Snavs from Copenhagen.
