Some of the big names in electronic music will be performing at the Paradise Island Festival being presented by London-based Soundcrash on Koh Samui on April 15 and 16.

 

The music and arts festival right on Chaweng Noi Beach coincides with the Songkran New Year celebrations, so there’ll be plenty of splashing going on amid the music of top bands and DJs from around the world.

 

In the line-up are hip-hop royalty the Pharcyde, drum-and-bass pioneers Goldie and LTJ Bukem, Krafty Kuts, Maribou State, DJ Kentaro and many more artists from home and abroad. 

 

Drawing on a wealth of experience that includes the award-winning Soundwave Festival, now in its ninth year, the team will be staging all sorts of activities, from boat parties to classes in yoga, tai chi and Thai cookery.

 

The eco-conscious Paradise Island Festival provides a great alternative to the full-moon parties popular among the islands, with its added focus on art and responsible tourism that involves working closely with the local community on projects such as reforestation. 

 

The festival on Chaweng Noi Beach will run from noon to 2am on April 15 and 16. Admission costs Bt2,800.
