Jai Thep Festival returns to Chiang Mai in Thailand for its fifth edition in 2020. From Friday, January 3st to Sunday, February 2nd expect music from bands and DJs across all genres plus 80s aerobics and wellness workshops.
The festival takes place a little outside Chiang Mai, nestled between a river and bamboo-clad mountains, stretching across meadows lined by mango trees. Music will come artists such as Thai techno DJ Mendy Indigo, Indonesian electronic duo Bottlesmoker and French psytrance legend Talamasca.
There will be four stages: the Home stage - a cozy den where you can find spoken word, poetry, acoustic acts and comedy; River stage - where you can laze by the river to the sounds of fun-loving house DJs; Main stage - where the bands will perform. As darkness falls head to the Eclectic Stage - for a raft of harder electronic music styles. Jai Thep is the only Asian festival to feature a 360-degree cinematic dome, an immersive visual experience.
Aside from the music, Jai Thep offers multiple activities, workshops and experiences. Yoga gurus sit side-by-side with collaboratory artworks which attendees are encouraged to contribute too.
