BANGKOK — The indie music scene in Bangkok is raging. Adding some bam to that boom, a new festival’s partial lineup of international acts was revealed Friday.
Three Texans called Khruangbin with a yen for playing ‘60s Thai funk, a Londoner-by-way-of-Portland producer calling himself Yung Bae and a young soulful Brit named Cosmo Pyke will be among five international performances in the Bamm festival series starting next month.
They’ll also be joined by an American folk singer-songwriter called Iron & Wine and Parisian multi-instrumentalist FKJ.
The shows take place in April and May at several venues around Bangkok: Helix Garden EmQuartier and Moonstar Studio and Noma Bkk, a new indie bar in the RCA area.
The schedule and tickets are available online at different rates. Catch all five concerts for 2,990 baht.
