Thailand’s music scene is vibrant and diverse, with Bangkok as its epicenter.  Lacking clear zoning regulations, the city is scattered with live music venues – with several hidden gems – giving it a charm unique from other Music Cities.  Without the help of a local music insider, one can never experience the true local music scene – but we’re going to change that.

“Bangkok Music City”

is a project collaboration between Fungjai – a Thai indie music platform, and NYLON Thailand – an online media publication, who see the potential and the positive effects of Bangkok becoming a global music tourist destination.  It will not only help the country gain more revenue from tourism, but will also help the local music industry thrive.

 

“Bangkok is a city of chaos, contradictions and constant change—just the sort of environment that encourages a lively, exciting and ever-changing underground music scene.”

    I’m a pro opera singer. I’m moving to Bangkok as I quit the theater (Opera job) to pursue my dream of becoming an indie rock singer and will hopefully find the right musicians. Let’s turn this around and make Bangkok a Huge Asian Music Indie Music market. Hopefully I will be lucky enuff…-.let’s make this happen 🙂
