Phuket Electronic Music and Dance Festival 2012
Karon Beach Countdown 2013
ollowing the trend of electronic music festivals around the world, the Creative Electronic Music and Dance Festival was started in 2011 by the Tourism Authority of Thailand in collaboration with the Department of Intellectual Property, the Ministry of Commerce and the Karon Municipality.
  This was an effort by the Tourism Authority of Thailand to rebuild tourist's confidence and the image of Thai tourism through music. Music is a universal language that bridges cultures, linguistics and religions. This event was promoted strongly by the Tourism Authority of Thailand through its massive online network.

  The goal of the event was to promote electronic music in Thailand, and encourage talented young Thai electronic artists to participate in the electronic music industry in Thailand. The top three winners of the event's IP DJ hunt contest received 20,000, 10,000 and 5,000 baht prizes respectively from Pioneer DJ. The two-day festival showcased an exciting line-up of more than 30 international and Thai DJs. DJs included J Montonn, and DJ Domination (winner of the "Best Video DJ in the World" contest in Dubai last year) and Pay and White, currently in Crystal Palace's top 10 world chart. This year's concept was "white winter" enabling partygoers will a glimpse of snow and get wild in a foam party with pretty dancers. Entrance to the Event was free. Fashion TV, the world's number one fashion and life style channel, was also a co-organizer of the event inviting more than 50 international fashion models to join the countdown on stage. Highlights of the event will be aired on Fashion TV to MORE than 500 million viewers around the world.
The Phuket Carnival attracted hundreds of people to enjoy its street parades and sample spicy cuisine from local food vendors. The event, based in Patong's Loma Park, was held from December 15~20, 2012. It featured street parades and performances by local entertainers and musicians. It was open to everyone and featured a light show, concerts with live contemporary music, traditional Thai dance performances, "saving the environment"

Normally it's held in November but this year they pushed it to December to avoid the rainy season downfall.
