It was the first major music festival since the #COVID-19lockdown was lifted. In order to comply with strict social distancing regulations, concert-goers were picked up by a tuk tuk and stayed in the three-wheeled taxis for the duration of the concert. Tuk tuks have become symbolic of Bangkok for many tourists. The festival gave the colorful rickshaws a chance to act as concert seats.
