Bangkok’s entertainment circles are feeling a lot of hurt. But those not buying into the apocalyptic fever and looking for life to go on will be happy to know: the show must go on. Some of them, at least (for now).
Instead of listing everything that’s been canceled, Coconuts Bangkok has pulled together information on which events are still going forward to check out all this month. We’ll update the list as more newsworthy events are announced.
Kolour in the Park
March 7, Thai Wake Park
The outdoor music dance festival returns to Thai Wake Park with three stages, food, drinks, art installations, water sports and many more. Tickets are available online.
JamCity by Jameson x Have You Heard? (Canceled!)
March 28, Sermsuk Warehouse
After co-hosting the epic Maho Rasop Music Festival late last year, gig promoter Have You Heard? is trying something new by bringing a promising music lineup to a pop-up market next to the Chao Phraya River. The lineup includes Irish rapper Rejjie Snow and Chicago-based indie band Whitney. More information.
Non Non Non Queer Rave

Queer dance collective Non Non Non this week will run an LGBT-friendly party which features dance music genres from electro and techno to noise and breakbeat. Spinning on the deck are DJ Mae Happyair, Wanton Witch and Salem Rachid.

Mad Face Food Week
March 13-15, Sermsuk Warehouse
Dozens of food and drink stalls will pop up at a riverside warehouse for a three-day scrumptious gathering dubbed Mad Face Food Week. Not sure if it’s meant to go with the virus panic or just bad timing, but the event’s theme is “Last Meal on Earth.” Read more about it here.
March 21-22, Museum Siam
Could Noise Market really be 10 years old? The open-air flea market / arts / music event returns to the lawn of Museum Siam later this month for its ninth outing. The event will feature music performances, film screenings, indie craft stalls, exhibitions and more. Find more information via Noise Market’s Facebook page.
