WHITE PARTY BANGKOK is poised to become Asia’s largest gay dance music festival during the New Year’s weekend. We invite party goers throughout Asia and across the globe to join us in Asia’s gay capital, Bangkok, to experience a party of epic proportions! WHITE PARTY BANGKOK welcomes all members of the LGBT community to come together and celebrate in an inclusive environment. Enjoyment and free expression are both welcomed and encouraged for all those taking part in the festival.

The main event will be held at the brand new concert hall, Muang Thai GMM Live House at Central World 8th floor, located in the heart of downtown Bangkok.

Jeffrey Sanker’s WHITE PARTY Palm Springs started as a small celebration with only a few hundred people in the Southern California desert in 1989 and has grown exponentially over the past 2 decades. It has evolved to become the world’s premier gay dance music festival, attracting more than 30,000 attendees from every corner of the globe.

Superstar entertainment has become a hallmark of WHITE PARTY. Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga, Ke$ha, Deborah Cox, Robyn, Carmen Electra, Icona Pop, Kelis, Mary J. Blige and Boy George have all graced the WHITE PARTY stage. The world’s biggest breakthrough star, Ariana Grande, helped celebrate the Festival’s 25th Anniversary last year. Even pop princess, Britney Spears, attended the event in 2012.

World-class DJs reign supreme at WHITE PARTY.

The festival features high caliber DJs/producers, including: Abel, Freemasons, Chris Cox, Dave Aude, Junior Vasquez, Victor Calderone, Manny Lehman, Rosabel, Paulo, Brent Collective, Tony Moran, and the late Peter Rauhofer.

“I am very proud of what WHITE PARTY has achieved in North America,” says White Party founder & creator Jeffrey Sanker. “The festival has become more than just a party. It is an institution and after 25 years, it’s time we bring the festival outside North America and what better place to do it than in Bangkok, the gay capital of Asia.”

Sanker found the ideal partnership with brothers Blue & Bond Satittammanoon of Cloud 9 Inc. Both are veterans in the entertainment industry, with over 10 years of experience producing some of the biggest shows in Asia, including Super Junior, Rain, EXO and Girls Generation…they are no stranger to large scale productions.

“We are thrilled for this partnership with Jeffrey to bring WHITE PARTY to Asia. The White Party Festival is a worldwide known brand with a long history of top caliber entertainment. We embrace this high expectation and will deliver an event worthy of its name. The festival here will be influenced by what the Asian market would like to experience, making WHITE PARTY BANGKOK truly unique,” exclaimed Blue Satittammanoon.

WHITE PARTY BANGKOK also welcomes Media Vision and Light Source, Asia's leading audio visual & professional equipment providers, as their official production partner. Together, they are Thailand's No.1 production house for large-scale international and local events, including: the highly acclaimed Heineken presents Sensation, K-Pop superstars Rain, Super Junior, EXO and Girls’ Generation as well as Thailand’s very own music royalty Bird Thongchai, Tata Young, and Bodyslam.

The inaugural WHITE PARTY BANGKOK will be headlined by some of the industry’s powerhouses: DJs Grind (USA), Ivan Gomez (SPAIN) and Nacho Chapado (SPAIN) and supported by Asia’s top talents. To keep with the WHITE PARTY PALM SPRINGS tradition, there will be some big surprises unveiled along the way including top international performers.
