BANGKOK — British nu-disco artist Sophie Ellis-Bextor will return to murder the dance floor in Bangkok at Asia’s largest gay New Year party.

Praised as the largest of its kind, White Party will follow up its successful debut last year with four massive parties over three days to celebrate the arrival of 2017.

Ellis-Bextor will headline the main party with her discopop electronica supported by DJ house music DJ Tom Stephan aka Superchumbo and DJ Danny Verde from Milan, Italy.


British dance queen Ellis-Bextor has released six albums with hits such as “Murder on the Dance Floor,” “Not Giving Up on Love,” and “Groovejet” – the music video for which she roamed the streets of Bangkok back in 2000.

The three-day festival opens with a military ball theme on Dec. 30, then New Year’s Eve and outdoor performances on the evening of Jan. 1 with a sexy sportswear aesthetic.

All are welcome to the LGBT-friendly party, but wearing white is a must on New Year’s Eve.

Standard tickets for the main event are 2,500 baht, while VIP access is 3,200 baht. Other passes and packages are available. More details and reservations are available online until Dec. 29.
