After seeing a successful turnout at its inaugural event last year, the outdoor music festival Maho Rasop is coming back with an even bigger lineup later this fall.
The organizers behind Maho Rasop (meaning “entertainment” in Thai) announced that British indie outfit Bombay Bicycle Club, best known for “Shuffle” and “Lights Out, Words Gone,” will be among the 30 acts that are scheduled to perform at the festival’s second edition, set to run across two days from November 16 to 17.
The Birmingham boys behind Swim Deep have also been confirmed as headliners. Having released their comeback single “To Feel Good” back in May following a long hiatus, the band will be revisiting Bangkok — having played its first show in our city back in 2014 — at the Maho Rasop festival.
Other acts in the lineup include Australian psychedelic rock titans King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard, black-clad UK rockers The Horrors, Brooklyn indie pop band The Drums and Korean American rapper Junoflo.
Beyond these international artists, there will, of course, be plenty of local talent taking over the stages too. The list continues with up-and-coming surf pop band Folk9, folk rockers Stoic, notable jazz band Supergoods and indie electrosynth wonder duo DCNXTR.
The event’s second lineup will be announced at a later date.
Maho Rasop Music Festival 2019 will take place on November 16 and November 17 at Live Park Rama 9 on Rama IX Road. Tickets have been selling in phases and are now available online, currently priced at THB2,990 per two-day pass.
The music festival debuted last year with 20 alternative music acts — both local and international — that played for 12 hours straight across three stages. It’s run by a music streaming service called Fungjai, in conjunction with two Bangkok-based concert promoters: Have You Heard and Seen Scene Space.
