Bangkok International Jazz Festival
While the Thai capital is well known for its pulsating nightlifel, those visiting in the month of March will be pleasantly treated to the soothing sounds of jazz! The Bangkok International Jazz Festival offers some of the best local and international jazz music right in the capital.
Attracting more than 30,000 fans each year, this popular music festival in Bangkok usually spans a period of five days and features jazz artists of international repute. The event which has been held since 2003, initially took place at Dusit Palace in Sanam Sua Pa, before being moved to the centrally located and livelier Central World Square, a premier shopping destination in the city.
Listening to an eclectic array of jazz music styles being performed live amidst the vibrant cityscape at night is a truly unforgettable experience. Among the artists who have graced the Bangkok International Jazz Festival include Christian McBride, Randy Brecker, Blue Sapphire, Jazz Kamikaze and Mariko Edno.
