  • This pioneering bar and art space turns 7 with a massive party
    WTF in its opening year, 2010

From Apr 28-30, WTF Bar and Gallery celebrates its seven-year anniversary with the three-day What the Festival 2017 under the foreboding theme of Never Never Land, "an imagined community or society that is capable of making its citizens happy."

Artists like Sakarin Krue-on and BK’s own Kathy MacLeod will present their visions of dystopia, joined by poetry readings, a series of film screenings (Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory, anyone?) and, of course, a block party on the final day. All free. 

On Friday, join the poetry reading by Bangkok Poetry group, hosted by Wesley Hsu, one of the bar's original founders.

Saturday, artists like Sakarin Krue-on and Kathy MacLeod will present their visions of dystopia, in the form of artworks inspired by what would happen if a fundamental element of their worlds disappeared.

The bar wll also be pouring special cocktails made using local ingredients, with an open bar from 7-9pm.

Of course, there'll be a block party on the final day. DJs Note from Dudesweet and JoJo from Trasher will be on the decks from 8pm till late.

Party starts at 7pm each day. For the full programme, visit www.fb.com/wtf.bangkok

WTF Gallery & Café, 7 Sukhumvit Soi 51, 02-662-6246. Open Tue-Sun 6pm-1am

Here’s a closer look at what’s coming up in the next few weeks.
