What is the B2TG Festival?
In the words of the organisers, the B2TG Festival is a collaborative event combining cultural, artistic & eco-friendly themes. Music is fused with dance, live performances, and visual art, while keeping the environment at the heart of the cause.
Spread over various locations on Koh Tao, the B2TG Festival is a multi-day celebration combining beaches, boats, and bars, playing host to an international line-up of DJs and performers.
The Evolution of B2TG
Borne out of resilience, the first B2TG Festival took place after the first 2020 lockdown.
B2TG Festival Episode 1: Attracting artists from all over Thailand, B2TG Episode 1 ran over two days and two nights. The festival spread an infectious energy of vibrance and optimism among attendees who were hungry for music, entertainment, and amusement after the uncertainty and tedium of the previous months.
B2TG Festival Episode 2: One of the last events of 2020 before Thailand was once more plunged into lockdown restrictions, the secondB2TG Festival amped up celebrations even more, adding a boat party and several additional artists to the event line-up.
TheB2TG Festival runs between the 14th and 16th of April. The main event base will be at Hin Wong Bay on the east coast of the Island. AWOL Beach Bar in Mae Haad will host daily sunset pastries, and on the final day there will be a boat party taking ticket holders on a tour all around Koh Tao.
It is still too early to unveil the full line-up of acts, but among the performers will be a stock Koh Tao regulars, including Superstar Panda, Naphtaline, Koish, Jazzie C, & Skinny Mark. Alongside them, the B2TG Festival plans to welcome several surprise headliners, 6 Thai DJs, and an international team of artists from France, the US, the UK, Japan, Italy, China, Egypt, and Germany.
