Jazz on the Beach is back! The annual Hua Hin Jazz Festival just keeps getting better and this year's event promises to top all those previous. A wealth of local and international talent will grace two stages located on Hua Hin Beach - a lot less cumbersome than the four stages the organizers managed last year. Don't miss the “jazz alley” between the two stages where you can find a variety of stalls and shops selling OTOP products .
During the festival, some of the best acts on the scene will entertain thousands of jazz enthusiasts. To give you an indication of the quality you can expect from this uniquely eclectic event, amongst others, names like Ibrahim Electric, Malene Mortensen, Jonas Johansen Trio, Lazaro Valdes, Michael Blake, Mikkel Nordso Band, Ben Besiakov Trio, Thomas Fryland, Superstar Bill Bruford's Earthworks, local heroes T-Bone, Crescendo, Mansri, and Mr.Saxman will be in attendance.
As with last year, this year's festival offers a series of jazz workshops to complement the activity on stage. Covering the piano, guitar, drums, vocals and saxophone, the workshops are designed to benefit the enthusiast while entertaining the family.
Certainly nothing to lose – in fact everything to gain from a visit if you are jazz fan in Thailand around the time of the festival. Sponsored by Heineken, monies raised from a number of activities at the festival site will be donated to the Hua Hin Red Cross Organization.
