With mosh pits, sweaty crowds, and overnight queues for tickets becoming almost obsolete today, it's safe to say that virtual music festivals are here to stay. This time, the competition for tickets isn't going away.
Thailand record label giant, What The Duck, has announced the nation's first interactive virtual music festival, Online Music Festival Top Hits Thailand, with 6 hours of performances by the top Thai artists who have climbed their way up music charts with their trending singles. Not only is an A-list lineup guaranteed, Online Music Festival Top Hits Thailand will be streamed live on Zoom, making way for interactions between artists and fans in real-time. The festival is set to take place on 7 June, from 12pm onwards, and fans can look forward to the likes of Scrubb, Bowkylion, Three Man Down, Tilly BIrds, The Toys, Jaylerr x Paris, Ink Waruntorn, Safeplanet, Mirrr, and Gungun.
In addition, Online Music Festival Top Hits Thailand will bring a full-scale concert production to the screens. A three-storey studio will be transformed into a spectacle, with a gigantic 360-degree screen supporting over 5,000 concert-goers and lights, sounds, and special visual effects. That's the dream, isn't it?
Earlier this month, What The Duck's first interactive Zoom concert featuring Thai duo Whal & Dolph was an overwhelming success, being sold out to an audience of 1,000 within the first 30 minutes of ticket sales. If you missed out on that, don't fret - Online Music Festival Top Hits Thailand will begin its ticket sales tomorrow, Sunday 24 May (10am TH/ID Standard Time, 11am SG/PH/MY Standard Time) on ticketmelon. Fastest fingers first - you snooze, you lose.
