The Festival Circuit: 10 bands you can catch more than once in Southeast Asia this August

The Festival Circuit: 10 bands you can catch more than once in Southeast Asia this August

From Fuji Rock to Baybeats, exciting music festivals of all shapes and sizes don't seem to be in short supply within Asia these days. But as fun as these big-scale experiences can be, sometimes the audiences' focus at these events can be very singular.

Outside of ardent music aficionados, most fans tend to come to a festival with the intent only catching one or two of their favourite acts. Sure, they may casually take a gander at couple of others on the lineup - but in large part, their excitement is reserved for the couple of bands closest to their hearts.

And for some diehards, the prospect of catching their favourite acts more than once can be much too tempting to resist. If you're the type to go on regional road-trips just to follow your beloved band around the circuit, well this guide is for you! August presents us with a glut of festivals within our corner of the world, which means that we'll be seeing quite a few familiar names making the rounds.
