A decade after its last epic appearance in Thailand, the well-renowned international music festival Sonic Bang is ready to ignite Bangkok once again. “Road to Sonic Bang 2023” will take place on August 12 at the esteemed IMPACT Exhibition Hall 5-6, Muang Thong Thani.
Festival enthusiasts in the country are buzzing with anticipation of witnessing the stunning lineup of both global and regional acts, spanning a diverse range of genres. The pop-rock group LANY are headlining the event, who came to the Thai capital at the end of last year for two sold-out concerts, much to the delight of Paul and Jake’s legion of dedicated fans.
The previous Sonic Bang festival saw stellar performances from celebrated artists such as Jason Mraz, Pitbull, Sheppard and Owl City, leaving the audience spellbound. If this year’s festival is anywhere near as exciting, then attendees can look forward to an amazing day.
LANY, as seen above, is comprised of vocalist Paul Jason Klein and drummer Jake Clifford Goss. The duo have been very successful in recent times, with hits such as “ILYSB” pulling in fans all over the world – Asian followers in particular have embraced the group, and the release of new album “XXL” in early August has resulted in their popularity soaring further.
As the festival countdown commences, a lineup of some of the most sought-after artists is gearing up to take Bangkok by storm. Canadian indie pop quartet Valley, seen below, had huge success with fans and critics alike when its song “Like 1999” came out in early 2021.
South Korean group ADOY, who are best known for their captivating melodies, will deliver its unique mix of dreamy synth-pop and atmospheric rock. The festival shall also welcome rising star UMI, whose hit single “Remember Me” has amassed millions of streams online.
Two tremendous Japanese bands, Nulbarich and Burnout Syndromes, will also take to the stage at the Road to Sonic Bang 2023 festival. Nulbarich, noted for their sublime fusion of pop, funk, and soul, has gained a gigantic following since debuting in 2016, while Burnout Syndromes has risen to prominence with a combination of rock and anime-inspired tunes.
One of Singapore’s most famous independent talents, singer-songwriter Lullaboy is ready to mesmerize the crowds by taking them on a cool melodic journey, and Thai band HYBS is another festival highlight, having built a solid reputation for performing epic live shows.
