The snake in the mountain, Kamar market in Big Mountain

When we thought about outdoor festival in Thailand, we thought of shading. Although Big Mountain Music Festival is taking place in winter, but it is still very hot in daytime. Our idea is inspired by the biggest laundry field in the world in Mumbai (it’s called Dhobi Ghat.) We would make a super long cloth hanger to hold 2,000 pieces of Kamar bands (traditional Thai multi purpose cloth). People will be meeting, eating, chit-chatting underneath during daytime. At night it will be illuminated by NGAN-WAT (temple fair) style lamps on top of the structure.

And when we think about a mega scale cloth hanger structure, it has to be done in architecture style. Each member is made of bamboo stick. Spanning 200 meters like snake bone along the event site, the Kamar Market is the main street in Big Mountain Music Festival. It’s name Sukhumvit Rd. in the event.
