About the Pattaya International Music Festival
The event was first held as the Pattaya Music Festival in 2002. It was so successful that TAT decided to collaborate with the local authorities in Pattaya to ensure that the festival would become an annual event.
In the auspicious year of 2006, when the people of Thailand came together to celebrate His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s 60th Anniversary of Accession to the Throne, the event was made bigger than ever and renamed the Pattaya International Music Festival.
That year, thousands of Thai and foreign tourists came to Pattaya to enjoy famous singers from major music labels from Thailand and overseas. It was regarded as one of the biggest musical events in the Thailand’s history.
This marked a turning point in the festival history, as 2006 was the year that the Pattaya International Music Festival started gathering an international following and attracting the really big name bands.
Now, music lovers from around the world look forwards to coming to Pattaya each year to enjoy the range of artists and musical genres.
