The postponed music festival, originally set in March of this year but delayed due to Covid-19, will tentatively take place on December 11 and 12 of this year, said Pattaya City Hall this week.
The music festival will feature four stages and dozens of famous Thai artists and is designed to boost domestic Thai tourism to Pattaya.
Deputy Mayor Ronnakit Ekkasing is heading the planning of the event and stated at a meeting this week that the event will be drastically different this year than prior years. The festival normally brings tens of thousands of young Thai people to Pattaya.
Ronnakit said the city is looking at festival ideas from other places that have done events and is leaning towards booths to separate large groups like can be seen below. Masks and the Thai Chana check-in platform will also be required. Hand sanitizer stations will also be available.
The city is also planning a fireworks festival but the exact date has not been decided upon.
