Nestled amongst the mountains of Khao Yai and shrouded in mist is the Mirasierra Khaoyai, a stunning Spanish style castle that looks like a slice out of Spain’s countryside than something just a short drive from Bangkok. It's also the otherworldly site for Karma Kastle, a 2-day house, techno and disco concept happening on November 24th & 25th.
Karma Klique, the charity minded collective behind the event, further promises to turn the sprawling rustic property into an interactive wonderland with performance artists, projectionists and installations adding to the site’s spectacular natural beauty while also offering a selection of fun diversions including organic farm tours, yoga workshops, reiki, yoyo masterclasses and more to further immerse guests into Khao Yai’s magic.
Musically the event will see several international numbers head north including Rebolledo, one half of seminal act Pachanga Boys and label head for Hippie Dance, Indonesia's Jonathan Kusuma, Singaporean heavyweight Zig Zach, Yoshi Nori from Bass Kitchen in Taiwan, Berlin based Dave Vega who is fresh from securing remixes from Tobi Neumann, Hong Kong rising talent Arun R and Dan Lo from the Observatory in Saigon.
There is plenty of local love on the roster as well with Sunju Hargun, Eddy Frampton, Aardy, Dan Buri, DOTT, Maurice Simon, Koish, Superstar Panda, Slum Disco Soundsystem, junesis and Mae Happyair all billed.
Some of Bangkok’s most beloved culinary institutions with be on-site as well as creative drink stations like ‘Pimp my Prosecco’ and a selection of natural wines from Naturalista.
As always, Karma Klique emphasizes intimacy over mass market appeal and space will be extremely limited. Secure tickets here for 1,800b until October 31st before going up to 2,000b. Admission includes camping options but Karma Klique will be providing a number of accommodation options located a short distance from Karma Kastle site in the coming days. Follow the event here.

Karma Klique, who have been organizing events around Thailand tagged as "partying with a purpose" since early 2016, have raised more than 200,000b for charities like the Duang Prateep Foundation in Bangkok and Warm Heart Worldwide in Chiang Mai though their previous events. Proceeds from Karma Kastle will benefit educational programs in Khao Yai. Past iterations have included Karma Kamp and two Karma Kruises.
