A first wave of eight acts, led by Korean-American pop artists Eric Nam and Sam Kim, has been announced for Thailand’s River Fest. 

Today (24 August), Live Nation Thailand tweeted the first group of artists performing at the inaugural “riverside international music festival”. The post prominently featured Nam, but also noted that he would be accompanied by Sam Kim as well as Korean acoustic pop singer 10cm, Thai duo Serious Bacon, Korean producer Dept, Thai acoustic duo LANDOKMAI, Anna, and rising Thai R&B artist Primprao.
