Lisa Ono, the Japanese/Brazilian bossa nova singer, will showcase her talents on day two, while modern jazz artists Fourplay will perform, along with Thai singer Ben Chalatit and jazz orchestra The Quartet.

Acts will begin at 7.30pm, local time, everyday. Those taking luxury holidays to the area can buy tickets for 1,500 baht, or £30.20 for one day.
