Second Gypsy Carnival music fest coming to Ratchaburi country farm

The organisers of this year’s Thai Gypsy Carnival have confirmed the event will go ahead in two weeks time. Tonphung Farm in a pristine rural area of Ratchaburi Province is the venue for the one-day music and entertainment fest on 18 February.

Musical performers on the bill are predominantly Thai and include the likes of Thee Chaiyadet, rock group Modern Dog, Polycat, Sukie and Boyd, and ska favourite T-Bone. Although the principle musical acts will play during the day and the evening, those who camp overnight at the festival have the option of listening to folk singers and guitarists until the early hours of Sunday morning. 

Amusements, a flea market and a dedicated kiddies’ zone are bonuses of the Gypsy Carnival. Vendors will be on hand and selling all the beverages, snacks and take-away meals needed for an impromptu picnic.

The entertainment begins at 10:00 on the big day and advance tickets are available on the Gypsy Carnival website. Tonphung Farm is in the Suan Phung region of Ratchaburi and is less than 20kms from the border with Myanmar. The farm is about 65kms from bus and train stations in Ratchaburi Town.
