Pattaya, Thailand-

The Thai New Year, Songkran, takes place in Pattaya for the first time since 2019 with full concerts and parties and Central Mall has announced their lineup of concerts during the festival.

Due to the pandemic, Songkran, also known as the water festival, was essentially cancelled during 2020 and 2021 and allowed for only traditional events in 2022. However, this year restrictions have been lifted and water fights, concerts, and parties are allowed once more to mark the Thai New Year.

As a result, Central Mall Pattaya has announced a stellar lineup of artists for the festival including Bowkylion, Zom Marie, Zeal, and Silly Fools. Admission is free and the concerts will be held in the sunken zone in front of Central Mall on the Beach Road side.

Be warned though, you are highly likely to get wet at these events, especially on the final day, Wan Lai, on April 19th, so dress preparing to be soaked!
