Songkran in Bangkok is set to change forever with the arrival of Siam Songkran – Thailand’s newest four-day Songkran festival set to be held 12 – 15 April, 2019 at Bangkok’s largest city centre entertainment zone, SHOW DC Arena.
A time of tradition, Songkran is also a time of fun with family and friends, and Siam Songkran is set to blend Thai and Western cultures with a packed music and entertainment programme and the largest water fight in Bangkok. Organisers expect Siam Songkran to become the largest Songkran Music Festival in Thailand and a new Songkran destination in the city that welcomes both residents and international visitors.
According to organisers, Zapp: Siam Songkran is something Bangkok has never seen before. Held over four days with four outdoor zones and two huge stages showcasing live music from top Thai performers, as well as talent from around Asia, we are melding together Thai and Western cultures in a fun environment and are confident festival-goers will be blown away by the event. Our goal is to make Siam Songkran an iconic annual music and entertainment event for the city, and we have invested significantly to ensure it Siam Songkran is the talk of the town.
