Krit Sripoomseth: 'We're moving it to Bangkok.'

Actor Krit Sripoomseth, who presented the idea to Phuket authorities on October 28, told The Phuket News during a flying visit to the island on Friday (November 7), “We’ve canceled the concert already and we plan to move it to Bangkok. There is no problem here now.”

The decision came after a cool reception from local authorities at the October 28 presentation, especially about holding a commercial event on a public beach so soon after local business operators had been expelled from beaches around Phuket for doing business on the sand.

In light of this opposition Feel Corporation, the company organising the concert, decided to change their plans and move the mega concert to Bangkok.
