The 19 day Revive 555 Festival will start with the Laguna Phuket Thailand Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) Championship 2021 hosted at Xana Beach Club, from 31 March to 4 April 2021. On the weekend of 3 to 4 April, Laguna Grove will host the Laguna Phuket Soundwave presented by Works.com music concerts, featuring live entertainment from several high-profile famous Thai music artistes soon-to-be-announced.

The following weekend, on 10-12 April, Laguna Grove will host the Phuket Province event Roy Rim Lay, which showcases local gastronomy and music. On Sunday 11 April, Xana Beach Club will host an afternoon beach run, followed by live entertainment and refreshments at sunset.
Paul Wilson, SAVP at Laguna Phuket said: “Our exciting events aim to stimulate domestic tourism back to Phuket. The name of the event expresses our desire to inject some positive energy and cheer to our community during this challenging time for Phuket. The Revive 555 Festival events continue into the Songkran Holiday period, starting on 12 April with the exciting Laguna Phuket Pride 2021 four-day event to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community. This coincides with Laguna Phuket Sustainability Day and Night Community Activity on 12 April and a Laguna Golf Phuket tournament on 14 April. Over the final weekend of 17 to 18 April, Cassia Phuket will host the destination’s first-ever Surf Skate event, featuring the fast-growing sport, live music and entertainment.
