Fat Radio 104.5 will hold the highly-anticipated "Krating Daeng Fat Fest Krungthep", postponed from last year due to the floods, on Feb 11-12 at the Lakeside, Muang Thong Thani, from 4-10pm on both days.
The festival will feature five stages _ each of which will create different feelings for the audience. Taking turn to perform on stage will be more than 100 bands who will entertain guests with various genres of music from bossa nova to hip-hop, pop, rock and indie.
Participating acts include Lula, Pijika, Crescendo, Sqweez Animal, Knock The Knock , Lullaby, La Ong Fong, Kor-Notapol, O-Pavee, Pangko, 25 Hours, Jui Juis, Better Weather, T- Bone, POP, The Yers, Ball-Jaruluk, Ten To Twelve, Scrubb, Slot Machine, Arm Chair, Lipta, Stamp, Slur, Singular, Singto-Numchok, Room 39, Mild, Dome-Pakorn Lum, Tattoo Colour, Paradox, August, Playground, Thaitanium and many more.
The festival also features a special room called "Nak Rong Mong Krai" (Who the Singers are Looking at?) and a mask-making zone where visitors can create their own masks to put on while enjoying the fun evening.
Another highlight is an art market featuring some 100 booths where a variety of handmade products will be available alongside other items from many music labels.
A two-day pass costs 500 baht if bought in advance, at Thai Ticket Major booths (call 02-262-3456 or www.thaiticketmajor.com) until Feb 10. Buy them at the door, but only for the day, and they cost 500 baht each.
