Hua Hin Jazz Festival
Date : 12 - 14 June 2009
Venue : Hua Hin Beach, Prachuap Khiri Khan
||Jazz lovers know exactly where they should be come mid-June. They are catching an invigorating sea breeze and dining on fresh sea food at Hua Hin’s famous beachside restaurants.
But only when they are not soaking up the serious stuff – musical concerts delivering the very best in jazz, compliments of a variety of local and international bands.
Hua Hin shakes off its low season blues, 12 to 14 June, every year for its international jazz festival at sites on the beach and in the centre of this laid back resort town that graces Thailand’s western coast of the Gulf of Thailand.
Hua Hin is approximately 220 km from Bangkok and is noted for being the country’s first beach resort discovered by royalty and nobility in the post war years when the only feasible way to reach its golden beaches was by steam train.
|Today, it is popular beach town with more than its far share of five-star hotels.
One of the main jazz festival stages is set up close to the Sofitel Central Resort, a heritage property dating back to early 1900s and Marriott.
In all, there are three stages for the jazz festival on the beach and in the town near the historical railway station and another near Phone Kingpet complex.
Of course, the beach venue serves up a winning ambience as thousands of jazz lovers sit on deck chairs or mats laid out on the sand and enjoy the very best selections of traditional and modern jazz.
All performances during the three-day festival are free and continue from 1530 until midnight.
No wonder this “Royal Town” is sometimes renamed “Jazz Town” when its streets are packed with music lovers of all ages, who gather to enjoy the best of jazz from both international and Asian musicians. Definitely, this is a festival that adds value for any holiday maker visiting Hua Hin during the 12 to 14 June weekend.
