Party in Bangkok over Songkran and chill to music from both local and international DJs.



Beam on Sukhumvit Soi 55 (Thonglor), celebrates the festival with a three-night party featuring international and resident DJs.

It gets off to a start on Friday (April 13) with High Klassified, a Montreal-based hip-hop producer named Kevin Vincent and a member of the hip-hop collective Alaiz Crew. King Khan, aka Khan Thaitanium, Tech 12 and Noxro also take turns manning the deck.

High Klassified's music is a reflection of his life: every cut meticulously crafted with equal measures of heart and soul to create slowed, deep percussive beauty.

On Saturday (April 14), South Korean DJs take up the relay supported by Mae Happy Air and Patty Your Villain. The Main Room will be home to DJ Bowlcut, one of Seoul’s most prominent champions of energetic lofi house, leftfield, techno and bass music. He is also the chief music director at Seoul Community Radio, Korea’s leading platform for new electronic talent in the country.

For those who like hip-hop and R&B, Didi Hahn will be in the Dalmation Room. Hahn is a rising star and one of the forces behind Pute Deluxe, a music collective that hosts rooftop parties. She’s quickly becoming one of the most exciting selectors in Seoul’s underground, blending hiphop with darkling R&B, house music.

On Sunday (April 15), party with Yeti Out featuring Tom Yeti and Places + Faces. Yeti Out is a creative collective that originated in London in 2010. What started as music curation in nightclubs lead to festival showcases from Hong Kong to Vancouver, working with acts like BBC Radio 1’s Benji B, hiphop legend Young Guru to Jersey Club pioneer DJ Sliink. In Asia, they focus on the Shanghai and Hong Kong’s markets.
