If you’re fresh off of Beatforest and want to keep the (literally) wild times going, then you’re in luck because Khao Yai is kicking off the Mystic Valley festival this week.
Getting the wildlife rowdy from Feb 2-4, Mystic Valley, held in association with the Tourism Authority of Thailand and Freedom World, will be holding its first nature-based music festival since 2020. 
Held at the Mountain Creek Resort area in Nakhon Ratchasima, the event will feature 10 stages and 10 music genres, from EDM to hip-hop and trance. If you’re wondering what to expect, the festival has a Spotify list to get you in the mood for your drive to the countryside. 
Starting in 2017, this will be the festival’s first outing in three years and—let’s face it—Bangkok has been through a lot since then. More than 180 artists will take the stage with headliners like Haus of Panda, Andy Bennet, Omar Labastida, and a whole lot of faces you’ll recognize from the clubs in Bangkok. Khao Yai is the closest large national part to Bangkok, home to a wealth biodiversity and a picturesque park, and the northern entrance is found 40 minutes from the festival location. 
At present general admission tickets for all three days start at B2,999 and Tier1 VIP tickets go for B4,999. There are also options to buy shuttle packages for getting around the grounds of this massive golf resort (B999), as well as an option to rent camping space for B1,499. If you don’t feel like roughing it, there are nearby hotel partners, including Atta Lakeside Resort Suite, Muthi Maya Forest, the plush InterContinental Khao Yai Resort, and more.
