This will be the inaugural in-person edition of G Music Fest, having first launched as a virtual concert in 2021 featuring HONNE, The Juans, I Belong To The Zoo and SB19 among others.

I Belong To The Zoo last released their single ‘Maybe’ in November last year, two months after the release of their sophomore album, ‘Kapiling’. The record featured previously released singles ‘Oras’, ‘Wala Lang’ and ‘Sana’.

Speaking to NME following the album’s release, frontman Argee Guerrero revealed that he isn’t typically one to speak much when it comes to matters of the heart. “I put those emotions I can’t verbalise into my music as an outlet,” he said.

Phum Viphurit recently announced that his sophomore LP ‘The Greng Jai Piece’ will be out later this year, though no further information has been released so far. The Thai singer also dropped the album’s first single ‘The Healing House’ in his July announcement.

Viphurit has explained that the single is “one of the stories from my echo chamber head, roaming there for the past 2 years,” and follows similarly deep and confessional guest spots earlier this year on the singles ‘Pills’ with US-based Hong Kong artist Thomas Ng and ’25’ with Thai instrumental jazz-funk duo The Photo Sticker Machine.
