Jai Thep Festival
31 January – 2 February 2020 | Chiang Mai, Thailand
ART. MUSIC. MAGIC.
Jai Thep, Northern Thailand’s leading arts and music celebration, returns for its fifth year, it’s 3rd as a 3 day festival! Get ready to experience musical ecstasy at one of our four stages or get entranced by the many large-scale art installations.
Jai Thep takes pride in being a multi-cultural, international event, with followers returning from all corners of the world, to enjoy resonating beats deep in the Lanna-country side.
What makes Jai Thep a truly awesome experience is the variety of stages, art installations, and magical, immersive environments, workshops and classes to explore. Curious souls who wander off the festival path may encounter many weird and wondrous realms sprinkled throughout the property, each with its’ own unique offerings, music and art.
Jai Thep is as much about its workshops as it is about its performances, and this year our lineup for activities is more diverse than ever! And don’t forget to check out the Kids Zone for a list of tailored activities for our young friends!
Help us to go GREEN! The Jai Thep crew asks you to help us keep the grounds clean and clear of trash, especially plastic! Jai Thep will be a “pack-it-in, pack-it-out event,” meaning that the Jai Thep requests that all attendees must take everything they brought into the festival out at the end of the event (see our FAQs!) In an effort to lessen our ecological footprint, please bring a personal, reusable water container! In 2019 we diverted 75% of our waste away from landfill – help us to keep up the good work! For 2020, we aim to have more renewable energy and to drastically reduce our carbon footprint (we’d like neutral or ideally positive, and we’ll keep you updated with this).
Jai Thep is family friendly
Children and families are very welcome at Jai Thep! We have child-friendly spaces where adults get the chance to be childlike again, and where kids can create and play. Planned and manned by a community of teachers, the kids activities at Jai Thep are a fundamental part of the festival, not an afterthought.
Children aged 12 and under are welcome at Jai Thep for free with a paying adult, and those 13 and older can take advantage of our low-cost student tickets!
