This weekend on Phuket, the Tourism Authority of Thailand launches the Rock on the Beach Music Festival, featuring a variety of music acts over the course of 3 days. The event will take place at the Dolphin Park area of Patong Beach, between 3.00pm and 10.00pm from June 17 to 19.
In addition to musical acts that include Vi Violet, Ink Waranthon and The Parkinson band, there will be kite displays and a flyboard show and of course, this being Thailand, plenty of food on offer. A statement from Thapanee Kiatphaiboon of the TAT perhaps give the best indication of the marketing brainstorming that went into defining the event.
“The Rock on the Beach Music Festival is an activity under the Thailand Festival Experience project and with the concept of Thailand’s 6F, 4M soft-power foundations, namely Food, Film, Fashion, Festival, Fight, Friendship, Music, Museum, Master, and Meta. And, in line with the “Visit Thailand Year 2022-2023: Amazing New Chapters”, the event is aimed at increasing the number of quality tourists to Thailand, and creating a different experience for both Thai and foreign tourists to enjoy.”
In other words, fun, food, and music, all with the aim of attracting more people to our lovely island.
After Phuket, the event heads to Krabi, where it will take place at the Tacola Yacht Marina from 3.00pm to 10.00pm between June 24 and 26. A variety of music artists and dancers will perform at beachside concerts and the event will also feature a drone display, puppet show, and traditional Nora dancing. Food and local products will also be on offer.
At both events, the TAT is working with local operators to provide 3,000 coupons worth 200 baht each, which visitors can use for food and other products on sale at the events.
Anyone who needs more information on either event can contact the TAT’s Phuket office on 07621 1036 or the Krabi office on 07562 2163.
