Record label celebrates 16 years in the business, with an all-day rock spectacular featuring its stable of artists. 

The label, which is known for its stable of rock musicians and grooming of up-and-coming Thai rock stars, celebrated its 16 years in the business with a 40,000-strong crowd right next to the Muang Thong Thani lake. With 14 bands on the line-up, including some of the most popular and biggest rock bands in the country, such as Bodyslam, Big Ass, Paradox and Cocktail, the show was guaranteed to entertain.

You have to hand it to the die-hard fans who spent all day under the blistering Sun and, in fact, showed up before sunset to get the best spots and catch every bit of the show. G16 officially started at 3pm with two of Genie Records’ newly signed bands. So, kudos to those rock devotees that turned up to show support, sitting on cement floors, with no trees offering shade. It was the kind of heat where walking around for more than five minutes could induce the kind of dehydration that required medical care.
