Pattaya is where most festivals like to land, including Wonderfruit which has not yet made any announcements.
As explained by Mixmag Asia, nothing else is currently known - not even a date. However, companies participating in running any Creamfields Thailand events include Live Nation, One Asia Ventures, and Clubbing In Asia - according to a row of company logos on the teaser pictures.
This would also not be Creamfields' first foray into Asia, having held events in Taiwan, Hong Kong and China before the pandemic.

International headliners like Calvin Harris, Skrillex, Armin Van Buuren, Tiesto, and others have performed at Creamfields Asian festivals in the past, alongside regional talents such as RayRay, KhoMa, and others.
As explained in NME, since the pandemic began in March 2020, other Thai music festivals, such as Wonderfruit, Maho Rasop, and S2O Songkran, have yet to declare their comeback.
S2O Songkran originally declared in March 2021 that a festival would be held in April 2022, but no more updates or announcements have been made afterwards.
The UK-founded festival is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, with its first event held in 1998 in Winchester. It later relocated to Liverpool and is currently held on Daresbury estate in Cheshire.
