Galaxy of stars for New Year in Patong

PATONG: New Year festivities in Patong will include concerts featuring a galaxy of Thai stars. Every night from December 23 to January 1, local bands and students from local schools will provide live entertainment at Loma Park. There will also be a beer garden as well as market stalls selling food, souvenirs and trinkets. On New Year’s Eve, artists including boy bands B-Mix and Strikerz, girl popsters 001 and pop/rock artists Parn, James and Neo-X will take to the stage at the soccer field on Thaweewong Rd at 10 pm. The highlight of the concert will be The Rock Stars – a combination of Thai rock legends, including Edward Vanco and Kaleidoscope. Stopping for a short intermission to count down to midnight – when 300 fireworks will light up the skies off Patong Beach – the artists will continue through to 1 am. On January 1, the concert will be repeated, but will start at 8 pm with performances by Phuket FantaSea entertainers. The midnight fireworks display will involve a stunning 2,000 rockets. iTV will include footage from both nights in its coverage of New Year celebrations around the country in a broadcast starting at 10:30 pm on January 1 (the broadcast on New Year’s Eve will be of the Bangkok celebrations).
