Songkran, the water festival is just about the corner. It is the time when locals make merit, pay a visit to their households and partake in standard activities. More than the years, it has also turn out to be a period when locals, vacationers, and expats go crazy as they splash every single other with tons and tons of water. Waterguns, hoses, buckets, what ever you can get your hands on. The streets are filled with revelers who want a piece of the water fight action. There are also dozens of pool parties and music festivals that take benefit of Songkran. This year, we program on going to these two new great music festivals.
Here’s what you want to know if you are also interested.
One particular issue we often wanted, was far more hip hop music festivals. Volo is going to be just that. To prime it off, it is going to be at a water park in Hua Hin! That is fairly cool and distinctive. How quite a few of you can say that you have been to 1 like that? Following this Songkran, we can.
two days of hip hop featuring Ja Rule and A$AP Rocky!
Volo is going to be a two-day occasion that will combine music with style, meals, and way of life. Yes, you cannot have hip hop with out style – so you can anticipate to see streetwear apparel getting sold and possibly even a style show. There will be a meals zone complete of meals trucks serving all sorts of meals from burgers and pizzas to neighborhood delights.
Clearly, also due to the fact it is a water park, you will have access to all the slides and rides as well just before (and possibly) through the festival. The festival begins at four pm but the basic park location will be open from 10 am.
Volo festival is banking on two major headliners to steal the show. On April 13, it is none other than Ja Rule identified for hit songs like ‘always on time’, ‘mesmerize’ and ‘I’m Real’ even even though they all have featured some awesome female artists such as Ashanti and JLo. Thinking about that his final song was in 2012, it is intriguing he has been added to this festival. I’d have preferred to see an individual like Travis Scott.
Anyways, Ja Rule will be supported by some of the major neighborhood and international hip hop and rap artists such as FIIXD, Diamond, Gavin D, and other people. We do not know any of them. In any case, we would be missing the 13th set.
The subsequent day the lineup is a lot shorter with A$AP rocky anticipated to headline with his hits. Our favourite tracks are the ones he has featured with other artists, on the other hand. Also performing on this day is Daboyway, a Thai-American artist who has a fairly slick music video named “Yeah Yeah Yeah” and a catchy track “Fire” Ft. Sunaree. Mindset and Double P are also scheduled for the 2nd day.
Considering the fact that quite a few of these artists are Thais, we certainly anticipate a lot of Thai songs and possibly some rap battles so it will be rather intriguing to see that.
In a nation exactly where EDM/techno/home reigns supreme, we cannot wait to dive into the Hip Hop scene right here and expertise each and every aspect of the festival.
