Anyone know a website where these things are announced?

I don't know of any, but you could probably ask just about any young Thai person in Pattaya. It is likely they all know.

If anyone hears of a Pattaya Issan Festival in February, please post it. I would love to experience the music and dancing.

If there is no festival, you can still experience the music and dancing. In Pattaya, on North road, also known as Pattaya Nua, there is a restaurant called Thai House. They put on an Issan music and dancing show every night and it is quite good. And even better news! The restaurant is not expensive and the food is good there. Try to get there around 8:00pm.

The one I was talking about is similar in spirit to a big outdoor rock festival.

Yes, I understood that. Don't be so quick to look askance at my suggestion about asking young people. Those Issan concerts draw huge crowds. Crowds of who? Young people. They go and seem to know where and when they will be. It can't hurt to try.

A website would be great and probably bring in more business. I guess the organizers are not that organized.

I asked a young person when the next Issan Festival will be held on 3rd road. I was told February 14. Has anyone else heard this to be true?

Can you buy a bottle of Sang Som at the festival, or do you bring one along? I suppose they have plenty of places to buy ice and mixers.

You can buy SangSom and it's cheap at the event. BUT the SangSom we bought didn't taste like SangSom but it definitly had a kick to it.

They seem to search Thais on the way in, not sure if they're looking for booze or guns.

No use to bring in anything, if they sell everything there for cheap. I usually drink beer but it is nice to have a bottle and share it.
