All Aboard the Night Train - LUSH is Full Steam Ahead for a November Arrival



Inside the Train Night Market

Bangkok partygoers are lining up for what promises to be one of the major nightlife events of 2012: LUSH.  The famous inner-city music festival with a social purpose is back for another edition on November 9th, and organisers predict it will be the biggest so far.

A highly original venue has been secured for the event: the Train Night Market, in Chatuchak, which will be hosting its first ever event.  This will be the fourth year of LUSH, with more than a million baht having been raised for charity, and with over 10,000 guests being welcomed in the previous three years.

Already secured are 42 live bands and DJs, including Apartment Khunpa, T-Bone, Jay Montonn Jira, Bangkok Invaders and Stylish Nonsense; they will be playing in fully redecorated historical warehouses, outdoor rooftop dance floors, vintage pubs and an art gallery.  The venue will provide a unique retro-chic feel, doubled-up by live visual performers using modern cutting-edge projection mapping technologies to provide guests with an exceptional experience.

LUSH is developed by the social entrepreneurs who recently brought to Bangkok the DID – Dine in the Dark concept, a fine-dining restaurant in the dark employing visually impaired guides.  Further supporting the cause of the visually impaired in Thailand, the next edition of LUSH will donate 30% of its profits to a professional skills development project for the visually impaired implemented by the Thailand Association of the Blind.

Moreover, the LUSH event will take place within the context of the General Assembly of the World Blind Union and the International Council for Education of People with Visual Impairment (WBU-ICEVI 2012).  For the first time in Asia and Thailand, these two global conferences will be hosted simultaneously, gathering over 1,500 participants from 190 countries during 8-18 November 2012 at the Imperial Queen’s Park Hotel.  With the LUSH event taking place in coordination with the WBU-ICEVI 2012, the Thailand Association of the Blind and LUSH aim at creating the momentum necessary for presenting the often underestimated potential of the visually impaired in a professional context and to encourage their employment in Thailand.

Promoting responsible business practices, LUSH has also been supporting environmental practices on an ongoing basis. The next event will thus be monitored and compensate 100% of its CO2 emissions through the support of clean renewable energy projects produced in Thailand in partnership with South Pole Carbon Assets Management Ltd.

The LUSH event is powered by Spy Wine Cooler and Mont Clair wines, and is undertaken in partnership with Stolichnaya Vodka, Patrón, and Pronto Denim. It will moreover feature the public launch of RESET in Thailand, a ground-breaking enzyme-based lozenge technology which enables people to enjoy an active nightlife and still be fit and productive the following day.
