Festival has started - loud DJ music from the stage next to the lake/Central tonight, although its scheduled to stop at midnight (my accommodation is nearby, can't escape the music for the next few days I think

Lived in that area 12 years ago, moved becase of the techno party at Lakeview twice per week until 6 am.

It is my first Samui Festival.  Looks like its going to be really good.  Lots of stuff happening around the lake, and I'm looking forward to the (free) beach buffet on Saturday night

Anyone know how late the beach buffet runs that night?

I'd like to know that, plus where it is? as I don't want to run up and down Chaweng beach looking for it !

Biggest crowd I ever saw in Nathon (in 12 years).

 

But also the biggest traffic jams for 3 days already.

Apparently yesterday was the big day (free food), a friend said that they were stuck in traffic for 2 hours in the evening in the Chaweng area. We went down tonight as we have been away and there were more army/police than tourists.

So I shall be happy, I did not try to get to the buffet yesterday, being stuck two hours in traffic, just to realize that all food was gone within the first 30 minutes (according to Facebook posts, also mentioning 2 hours traffic jam)...:crying:

 

Went to Chaweng Lake stage this evening – probably Samui Festival in Chaweng, with some food stands – surprisingly little crowd for a concert with the artist "Chin" and a backing group; but on the Samui Festival home page the Thai rockband "Slot Machine" was advertised for the 9:20pm show, and they seemed to be quite interesting with numerous professional official videos of their presumably hits (signed to Sony/BMG and won European MTV award for best Southeast Asian act). Actually we went after cinema, because my daughter wanted to see and hear Slot Machine – me too – but after two songs with substitute Chin, she asked if it was all right to go home, so boring, and she had never heard about him before. As others also walked out from the relative small crowd in front of the stage, I presumed we could also leave, without being too impolite...:whistling:

 

Agree with TheLobster, that it seemed like authority personel were the largest group of "Chin" fans...:smile:
