SOT is invading The Fields for its fourth year strong and is looking to make a lot more noise this time around after having found its match made in heaven: Mercedes-Benz. Joining forces, they present Mercedes me @ SOT.
The partnership is a natural one, with SOT being known selectors of style and sound and Mercedes-Benz having always been about representing the best in its class. Their effortless ability to weave modernity with minimalism, and deliver it to an urban environment, mirrors the SOT spirit seamlessly especially within Mercedes me brand, a cross-disciplinary lifestyle platform that invites visitors to experience a wide range of offerings with all senses. Also sharing a vision of a sustainable future, which is at the forefront of Mercedes-Benz’s latest all-electric EQ line, is the synergy upon which Mercedes me @ SOT was built.
The experience brings a slice of Thonglor to Wonderfruit, merging the neighborhood’s raucous music and nightlife vibe with its inimitable art and food scene. Mercedes me @ SOT packages all of the above within its grounds, welcoming beloved Bangkok eateries like Peppina, Soul Food Mahankorn, La Monita, Billy’s Smokehouse and Surface, all of whom are all curating new menus with dishes designed just for the occasion. Friday at the camp will also see perennial chefs from around the city like Chalee Kader, Paolo Vitaletti, Jarrett Wrisley and Billy Bautista roast a whole pig over an open fire for a special Friday night feast – perfect for those who missed the boat on Bo.lan’s sold-out dinner. And in keeping with Wonderfruit’s no-waste mantra, every Mercedes me @ SOT eatery will use a different part of the pig to create a gastronomical smorgasbord of pork-based delicacies.
The soundtrack is urban and comes courtesy of worldwide hip-hop heavyweights like Red Bull Thre3style judge Skratch Bastid, Pfel & Greem of C2C and Chicago rapper Kweku Collins. Local loves like Bomber Selecta, Bangkok Invaders, Noxro and Southside will be teaming up with renowned regional acts like JNR and KFC, and watch out for a special Sunday session by DJ Dragon and Pitchy with MC Tul who will throw down a blend of hip-hop and drum ‘n’ bass.
Mercedes me @ SOT has also called upon Happenings Event Agency in Bangkok for this year’s structural design, who have gotten together with DC Comics graphic novel artist Adam Pollina to bring their creation to life in The Fields. Designed to be entirely different from the bamboo that’s omnipresent across The Fields, the output simulates an urban playground with multilevel scaffolding that utilizes fencing and recycled metal palettes to stay true to Wonderfruit’s sustainable initiatives.
Look out for Mercedes me @ SOT – your go-to destination in The Fields for all things dining and dancing, courtesy of Mercedes-Benz.
