Chang Chui, the large-scale art and creative space in Bangkok’s western outskirts, will host a new art and music spectacle called Dontri Festival (dontri being “music” in Thai).
The venue, which was listed by Time Magazine as one of the “World’s 100 Greatest Places,” is located on a vast 17,600sqm plot of land with a decommissioned aircraft in the middle. If you haven’t yet seen it, we’d highly recommend it – and this music festival could be an especially cool introduction to the place.
The festival will have more than 70 acts set to perform on eight stages under the theme “The Creation of the Galaxy.” There will be 10 sub-genres of electronic music represented such as house, trance, techno, trap, hardstyle and future bass.
And, of course, the event will draw big-name local artists. Among the headliners are the country’s pioneer in drum & bass DJ Dragon, up-and-coming rapper Urboy TJ and techno veteran Dan Buri.
Tickets start at THB500 and are available online. Dontri Festival will take place on June 1 at Chang Chui on Sirindhorn Road in Bang Phlat district. The venue can be reached via several transportation options including taking a shuttle bus service from Khao San Road or BTS Bang Wa.
Chang Chui opened in 2017 as the brainchild of Somchai “Lim” Songwattana, founder of successful Thai fashion brand Flynow. It is now used as a multi-use complex featuring art exhibitions and installations, as well as lots of shopping, pop-up workshops, and live music events.
