BANGKOK — Indie English rockers, an Australian indietronica group and a Taiwanese math rock trio are among the first acts due to take the stage at a new outdoor music festival later this year.
The organizers of the Maho Rasop Festival on Thursday revealed a list of 12 alternative music acts to perform live outdoor in November at the capital’s Phra Ram IX area.
The marquee talent among the international acts will be London quartet The Vaccines, who have opened for The Rolling Stones, Muse and Arctic Monkeys.
Also on stage will be upbeat Melbournian electronic group Miami Horror, soul-infused pop outfit PREP and Elephant Gym, a three-piece math rock group from Taiwan.
Local bands are tropic-inspired indie pop Gym and Swim and up-and-coming pop quintet Temp.
The next phase of lineups will be announced at a later date.
