International Cultural Promotions Limited is excited to announce this year’s 20th anniversary celebration for Bangkok’s International Festival of Dance & Music. The Festival was established in the year 1999, commemorating His Majesty the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej’s 6th cycle birthday. From just having 6 performances and 200 artists, the Festival has now grown in scale where over 20 performances with more than a thousand artists are taken to the stage over a 5-6 week period.
Now, in its 20th year running, organizing one of the most highly profiled and prestigious performing arts festival, we are proud to continue to raise awareness and appreciation of the world of arts. As the Festival showcases traditionally classical ballets, symphony orchestras and folk traditions, the Festival also features modern dance & music like contemporary pop and Broadway musicals to present an eclectic programme for all.
Through the years, the Festival has attracted an audience of millions of people. With the reputation that it has gained, we hope to attract local attendees and encourage tourism in Bangkok during the festival time. By inviting international, world class talents to perform in Bangkok, we hope to build stronger international relations for Thailand, create a more positive image of Bangkok and pursue in putting the city on the map to be the ultimate destination for arts and culture.
In celebrating two decades of such a prosperous event, the Festival is truly thankful for the loyal support from many sponsors, patrons and friends alike, for its on-going success. It has become recognized as one of the most outstanding performing arts events in the Asia and a landmark in Bangkok and Thailand’s cultural calendar.
