Awakening Bangkok 2021/22

Awakening Bangkok is a lighting installation festival that gathers several local artists in the old quarter of the capital. Awakening Bangkok 2021/22 is the fourth iteration of the festival, but the first time there will be a daytime show and the first time it will be organized in five locations throughout the year.

The festival is being held from March 25th – April 3rd, 2022 at 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. at Charoenkrung and Talat Noi, extending all the way to Soi Nana Yaowarat. The festival will be held under the concept of “RE:VIVE” with the intention to portray that “lights play a part in ‘reviving’ the life and interest of the old city of Bangkok.”
