Head for the hills.
Escape from Bangkok for the weekend with Karma Kastle 2, a three-day music festival taking place less than three hours’ drive away in Khaoyai.
From May 17-19, you could be dancing to electronic music from over 20 DJs with a lush green mountain backdrop. Included on the lineup are Germany's DJ Dustin, head of the Giegling label, his labelmate Dwig and alumni Sevensol (KANN Records). Japan will be represeted by DJ Ground and Akirahawks, while Thomas Von Party represents Canada. Expect plenty more top names from around the region and home.
