Bangkokstock Music Festival

Bangstock is a one-day charity music festival with eight local bands donating their time and considerable talents.

The breaks between the bands will feature a UK DJ, stand-up comedians, and special guests. Great fun from noon-midnight.

Time & Location

Shenanigans Irish Pub, Surawong Road, Bang Rak, Bangkok

About the Event

BANGSTOCK is a one-day charity music festival being held in support of the BCTFN. This longstanding charitable organization raises all its funds to support charitable projects around Thailand at the annual Ploenchit Fair, run for decades with an army of some 2,000 volunteers and the sponsorship of many private and public companies, businesses and the British Embassy. However, the cancellation of this year’s Ploenchit Fair has left a gap in Bangkok’s live music calendar as well as creating a shortfall in the charitable contributions made annually by the to the many charities in Thailand that it supports.

The organizing committee – an eclectic group of volunteer do-gooders – has stepped forward to organize a fun event for their fellow Bangkokians with the net proceeds from the event being donated to the BCTFN to enable them to continue doing their good work.

Shenanigans Irish Pub will host the events and will be making their authentic Irish fare available at Happy Hour prices all day, with a percentage of sales being added to the overall donation.

Eight local bands are donating their time and considerable talents. Most are familiar to residents and will be playing a wide range of rock, blues and pop. During the breaks a UK DJ, stand-up comedians, and other special guests will appear onstage, making for a whole day of non-stop entertainment.

A raffle for some fantastic prizes will be held and a limited number of BANGSTOCK t-shirts will be available for sale – look for them to become a collector’s item.
