If you’re looking for possibly the biggest and most anticipated music festival of the year, look no further; Summer Sonic 2023 might be it. The mix of mainstream artists as well as indie artists have always been in their line-up, while in the past, they’ve had big names like Rihanna headlining. This year, we’re going to see Liam Gallagher and, most importantly, Kendrick Lamar.

Along with the headliners, Summer Sonic 2023 will see performances from K-pop group TREASURE, Evanescence, Fall Out Boy, Niall Horan, NewJeans, ENHYPEN, Wet Leg, WILLOW, Lauv, Maisie Peters, KANGDANIEL, and many others.

The music festival is spread over two days across two different venues, hosting various activities and stalls that have been set up for attendees. You’ll be able to experience live art painting, visit an art exhibition, massages, play games, and even go to a silent disco.

Good Vibes Festival 

Where: Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia 

When: July 21, 2023 – July 23, 2023

Celebrating their 10-year anniversary, Good Vibes Festival promised their fans an unforgettable experience by bringing in big names and great sets from artists like The 1975, The Strokes, Cassian, Daniel Caesar, Dhruv, NxWorries, among others.

Zones have also been segregated from the stage for people seeking entertainment. You can visit the silent disco that is streamed through headphones, for which you’ll have the option between two DJs. You will also see several local food stalls and an entire zone dedicated to fashion.


Where: Pattaya, Thailand

When: December 14, 2023 – December 18, 2023 

Wonderfruit has been known as the ultimate Thailand experience by many past attendees. Dubbed as the Burning Man of Asia, the festival takes place on the Siam Fields and offers four days of incredible music, workshops, and local food stalls you wouldn’t want to miss.

They have also asked and encouraged their attendees to be socially responsible, with environmental stability actions set in motion, calling it the zero-plastic event. But nothing really beats the number of activities one can participate in. You could go for several local Thai cuisines; if you’re not a foodie, you can visit the ‘ancestral forest’ or even go for the ‘theatre of feasts,’ where local chefs perform demos in an open-air kitchen.

25 Years Rush Hour, Alabaster dePlume, Alex Kassian, Brendan Eder Ensemble, EVENIF, Fantastic Man, and Di Linh, among others, are some of the artists part of Wonderfruits’ 2023 roster.

Djakarta Warehouse Project

Where: Jakarta, Indonesia

When: TBD 

Djakarta Warehouse Project is one of the largest EDM festivals in Asia, hosting artists like Diplo and Major Lazer, along with guest appearances by Disclosure, Tiesto, and many more. The festival houses up to 90,000 people in an indoor, two-stage complex with great stage designs and lighting that illuminates and engages the crowd. Djakarta Warehouse Project’s 2022 edition roped in the likes of Armin van Buuren, DJ Snake, Hardwell, Illenium, Martin Garrixx, Zedd, Gareth Emery, Lost Frequencies, and Nervo.

You can also step out and take a breather at the food court, which will have your favorite fast food stalls as well as some Indonesian delights. Although we don’t have confirmed dates for the festival, it usually takes place in December.
