‘Bangkok Music City’ or ‘BMC’ is Thailand’s first music conference and showcase festival, which its inaugural event was held between 1-3 November 2019 with the music conference held at TCDC Bangkok in the Chareonkrung area, aka ‘The Creative District‘ while 8 showcase stages were hosted in venues scattered around the area.
BMC was co-founded by Fungjai - a music platform, media, event organizer and marketing agency; and NYLON Thailand - a media, publishing and event organizing company. Both companies are deeply involved in the local music scene of Thailand and understand its potential to become one of the nation’s economic drivers. With a strong tourism industry that still has much room to grow, music can be incorporated by applying ‘music tourism’ and ‘music city’ strategies to ensure the sustainable development of the market.
- Establish Thailand as a world-class music tourism destination;
- Create a global platform for Thai and Southeast Asian musical artists;
- Encourage international music business connections; and
- Support the sustainable development of both Thailand and the region’s music industry.
