We all know that Thailand held the best music festival in Asia and previously Waterzonic is being held at Bangkok, Thailand for the third year consecutively. This year line up includes big name like KSHMR, W&W, Marlo, Brennan Heart, Mija, San Holo, Maurice West, Sam Felt and local support by Nakadia the techno maestro in Thailand. This years Waterzonic 2017 was a 2 days event, 29th and 30th September 2017 located at Rajamangala Live Park in Bangkok.
Every year of WaterZonic, the event just improves year by year. Since Waterzonic 2014, there was a huge improvement that has been made and packed into the spectacular show of water, sound, lights and pyrotechnics for WaterZonic 2015 which was titled as “Utopia”, the venue felt better, the performances were larger-than-life and the enormous number of fans came out. I don’t think words are needed for WaterZonic 2017 as it was really well presented.
As the darkness fell on Bangkok’s Friday Night, the lights on the horizon exploded out of the Live Park. They were calling it Bangkok socialites’ bat signal that nobody was sleeping early that night. Arriving at the pre-entrance, the energy was tangible as 20’s of thousands of people were flooding in. There are Streets vendors on the outside making sure that all the party-goers had all the light up accessories & waterproof protection they needed before the show. There are security check before the entrance of the stadium making sure everyone is over 18 and didn’t bring any drugs or dangerous weapons, once you pass through the security check there are many booth giving out freebies such as caps, tiny water proof bags, glow sticks and more and if you are big fan of Waterzonic they do sell souvenirs too. Finally getting inside the main event, the visuals and set-up were spectacular. The layout was reminiscent of last year, although arranged in a more intimate and multidimensional format. The towering light shows, fireworks, water cannons and fireworks created a pleasantly yet overwhelming sensation that makes you feel like you are in the middle of something huge. Many memories were made on that day, as the event was filled with beautiful ladies ready to be soaked in water and men were taking off their tops to show off their muscles.
Working your way through the crowd, pass the raised VIP area, you would find people from everywhere in the world. There were flags waving, dancing, colors, lights, buckets and ultimately a sea of smiles as everyone came together to enjoy an international lineup of some of EDM’s greatest DJs, The last set for the whole event was played by W&W and it was the greatest thrill as the moment they came on stage, everyone took out their phones to take videos and photos to make sure their memories were sealed that night!
The event did a great job in selling alcohol, as lines were always soaring pass and the guests never had to wait too long. The performers were also excellent and played music of all varieties with their own remixes of course, so people were always on their feet, jumping and getting showered with water, ending up to be a great night of WaterZonic.
It went on all night and it was glorious. After it all ended, when we were screaming for more, WaterZonic served us with one last message: “See You Again - WaterZonic 2016.” and Yes, absolutely YES, see you again WaterZonic.
The event was a very successful one as everyone there enjoyed themselves to the fullest, water splashing and endless happiness filled the air with some of the greatest EDM DJs spinning their set and pumping up the crowd throughout the dust till dawn. YES, we would definitely recommend WaterZonic to all of you Music fans and party lovers out there. I can surely say I can’t wait for another event like this to come to Malaysia!
