British shoegaze legends complete the lineup for Maho Rasop Festival. 

British shoegaze veterans Slowdive and U.S. "chillwave" artist Washed Out are the final to acts announced for the debut Maho Rasop Festival taking place in Bangkok this November. 

Set to take place at Live Park Rama 9 on Nov 17, the festival is a joint effort from some of Bangkok’s best-loved indie music promoters, namely Have You Heard?Seen Scene Space and music streaming service slash online music zine Fungjai.

Formed in Reading in 1989, Slowdive built their name for their dream-pop sounds and woozy melodies playing off the dual vocals of Rachel Goswell and Neil Halstead. Albums like Just for a Day (1991) and Souvlaki (1993) are regularly namechecked as among the best of the '90s. Their comeback album, last year's self-titled effort, also received glowing reviews ending up on year-end lists such as Pitchfork's 50 Best Albums of 2017. 

 

 

Washed Out started as bedroom recording project of Ernest Weatherly Greene Jr., who rose to prominence in the late '00s with the single "Feel it all Around," which went on to become the opening theme song for the popular comedy TV series Portlandia. He's since released three albums on labels such as Sub Pop and Stone's Throw. 

They join a lineup that includes: The Vaccines (UK), Miami Horror (AUS), PREP (UK), Dean (KR), Sunflower Bean (US), Elephant Gym (TWN), Oddissee & Good Company (US), Solitude Is Bliss (TH), Wang Wen (CN), Vacations (AUS), Lucie Too (JP), Gym and Swim (TH), temp. (TH) and SOLE (TH). 

Tickets to the festival are B3,990 from Ticketmelon.com

November is shaping up as a big month for fans of all things indie. On top of Maho Rasop, there are visits from American dream-pop band Cigarettes After Sex and Japanese production whiz Cornelius, as well as the debuts of new experimental music showcase Sukhum Music Festival with Acid Mothers Temple & The Melting Paraiso U.F.O. and Siwilai Tour: The Celebration of Molam Sound with Four Tet and DJ Nu-Mark.
