Summer Sonic To Make Thailand Debut in August at Impact Arena

On Wednesday, Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin hosted the announcement of the first-ever Summer Sonic Bangkok at the Government House, demonstrating Thailand’s dedication to enhancing its cultural influence globally.

Summer Sonic is well-known internationally among music festivals. Initiated in 2000 in Japan by Creativeman Productions’ CEO Naoki Shimizu, this premier music festival has attracted global audiences to Japan every August.

Over two days, the festival in Osaka and Chiba offers a wide range of genres, including rock, pop, electronic, and hip-hop, drawing major international acts as well as prominent local artists.

The festival is known for its diverse lineup, featuring both widely recognized acts like Blur and Liam Gallagher from the UK and emerging talents like Lauv from the US.

The Thai edition of Summer Sonic is scheduled for August 24-25 at the Impact Arena, Muang Thong Thani, showcasing a mix of international and local talent.

The announced international headliners for the event include the Japanese duo Yoasobi, Japanese band Babymetal, American singer-songwriter Lauv, Norwegian artist Aurora, British rockers Nothing But The Thieves, and British pop artist Henry Moodie.

The lineup also features several popular Thai artists, such as rock group Bodyslam, rapper F.Hero, and Thai-Belgian singer-songwriter Violette Wautier.

Additional high-profile artists are set to join the Bangkok event to attract more visitors, who will come not only for the music but also to experience the diverse attractions Thailand has to offer.

This year is particularly significant for Summer Sonic as it ventures outside Japan for the first time, excluding a singular event in Shanghai in 2017.

More announcements regarding headliners and ticket availability are forthcoming. For the latest updates, follow the Summer Sonic Bangkok’s Facebook page.
