Update: The location was changed to ACMEN Ekamai Complex
BANGKOK — Selling band tees, requesting their own songs and DIY music videos are some of the lengths to which indie musicians must go to be heard. One thing they usually cannot do: make money.
Rock band Ten to Twelve and the alt-musicians of Poomjit are headlining a music fest to support indie music at which audiences get in for free and pay something directly to the bands they want to support.
At Long Khan, eight bands will take turns playing what they please for people to pay for what pleases them into a bucket at the front of the stage. All the money will go to the artists.
The festival will be held 3pm to 11pm on Jan. 15 at ACMEN Ekamai Complex on Sukhumvit Soi 63, can be reached by motorbike from BTS Ekkamai.
