Phuket: Snoop Dogg in Bangkok
BANGKOK: After a big success and even bigger beats in 2012, the Together Festival is coming back to Bangkok this January 19, with pop culture icon Snoop Dogg to headline, with additional performances by Justice, as well as DJs Max Vangeli, AN2 and Quintino.
Tuesday 15 January 2013, 10:05AM
First launched in April by A.G. Productions and Bangkok’s leading house music promoter, Retox Sessions, Together Festival is the ultimate dance party experience.
As an emerging name in worldwide music fairs and festivals, Together aims to put Bangkok on the map regionally, with the last event attracting more than 8,000 in attendance and big-name acts like LMFAO, Lil’ Jon and Afrojack.
This year boasts another jaw-dropping line-up, with a headliner that needs no introduction. This hip hop legend has gone by many aliases, but these days he’s known best as Snoop Dogg. The rapper and record-producer has sold over 30 million albums worldwide, topping the charts with hits like Gin and Juice and Drop It Like It’s Hot.
Snoop’s career spans the last two decades, but he’s hotter than ever right now with a forthcoming studio album and film called Reincarnated in the works under his new moniker Snoop Lion. They are both set for a 2013 release.
Also hitting the stage are French electro-pop duo Justice. Bursting onto the scene in 2006, these guys caught fire fast with club hits like We Are Your Friends and D.A.N.C.E.
Justice quickly became known for blending vitamin-enriched electro beats and pop on the dance floor. They have since done remixes for the likes of N.E.R.D., U2, Daft Punk and Lenny Kravitz, also winning a Grammy Award for their take on the MGMT song, Electric Feel in 2009. Justice have announced a new EP set to drop in January.
Heating up the list of performers are house DJs Max Vangeli and AN21. While they’ve just released an album together, both are known globally by their own rights.
Vangeli was named by DJ Mag as one of the “Top 5 DJs to watch in 2011” and has collaborated with Example, Calvin Harris and Tiesto. Swded AN21 has a reputation as a club connoisseur.
Also joining is DJ Quintino from Holland. Discovered at just 18, Quintino has travelled the world playing landmark gigs and high-profile festivals. In 2009, his remix of Cidinho & Doca’s Rap Das Armas garnered over 10 million YouTube views.
Together Festival will be the live stage debut for all these artists in Thailand.
Representing Thailand at the festival are Thaitanium, who have raged across the Asian hip-hop landscape with their unique style of East meets West; the Bangkok Invaders; a group of deejays from Superzaaap and many more local artists. So what you waiting for? Come together – right now.
Together Festival is being held January 19 at Bitec International Trade and Exhibition Centre, Bangna. Pre-event tickets can be bought from thaiticketmajor.com.
