There is precise translation in English for the term, “Nunglen”. The closest meaning of it is “chilled out sitting” which tells the mood of the event. This episode of the concert is their 3rd edition took place in the valley 200 km. to the west of Bangkok. It is pretty much a small to medium size outdoor concert where all audiences can watch it on their picnic mats 6 hours continuously. The music themes are “light”through out.
The stage is a small humble hill made of standard scaffolds. 48 roll-able panels are attached to it to create different settings for light and image projections. During the early evening time, when there are still sun light, the panels are set horizontal. The audiences can real mountain in the back ground through it. As the artists change and musics get more active the panels turn to catch light creating different backdrop for more intensity. Once it get really late and the musics go super active in late night, panels move during the artist performance.
