The first festival of its kind to be staged in the glorious beauty of southern Thailand will feature some of the best international and Thai musical acts, alongside an arts program showcasing the very best that Thai culture has to offer. The fact that it is the first ever festival of its kind to be staged in Thailand is no cause for concern, it is in fact cause for added excitement. Paradise Island festival is in great hands. Soundcrash have over 10 years of experience as concert and event promoters in the UK and Europe, and their Croatian festival – Soundwave – is considered one of Europe’s top ten music festivals (The Independent). So you can be assured that the good people behind the festival will stage one hell of a party.

It’s not just about the music with a full arts program of live fire performances, painting and graffiti jams, sunset yoga and sunrise meditation, Thai Cookery and Tai Chi classes sitting alongside other little treats like secret after parties and exclusive artist boat parties.  Paradise Island Festival has everything you need to make your trip to South East Asia all the more magical.
