River Books (a leading Thai and UK publishing house), Chakrabongse Villas, Bangkok Metropolitan Administration and Museum Siam presented the debut of Bangkok Edge Festival, Bangkok’s first ideas festival in February 2016. The first festival confirmed BangkokEdge as the premier cultural event in the heart of old Bangkok, offering thought-provoking discussions, stimulating entertainment, and lively workshops for people of all ages. It is an outstanding opportunity to experience high level thought and entertainment, unlike anything that has been available in Bangkok thus far.
The second edition of BangkokEdge took place in January 2018 with a weekend of literature, film, talks, workshops, photography, music, puppetry, street food and markets, and world-class performances.
BangkokEdge is set to return in 2020. There will also be Mini Edge events before the next festival. Follow us on Facebook for updates.
