Since then, there has been quite a hullabaloo with international fans excited to catch their favourite artists performing in Asia. The music festival is slated to be held at The Legend Siam Amusement Park in Pattaya during the Songkran period from 13 April to 15 April.
This marks Rolling Loud’s second attempt at foraying into the Asian market. They had previously announced shows in Hong Kong in 2019, which got called off due to the riots and protests.
Tickets and performances
Passes for the event are scheduled to go on sale from 1 October. The prices start at THB 8,500 and go up to THB 12,000 for VIP tickets. Fans can also buy passes in instalments.
Although a complete lineup and headlining performances are yet to be announced, 66 acts are expected across the two stages. These include both international artists, as well as famous performers from Asia and the Thai music scene. The complete list is expected to release in November.
