Half Moon Festival takes place every 2 weeks: 1 week before and 1 week after the Full Moon party. The festival, organized in the forest of a tropical island attracts several thousands of participants.
One of the 3 original "Moon Parties" open-air gatherings which made of Koh Phangan a world-famous party-island. Guests come from all over the World to experience this unique event. Half Moon Festival welcomes you for a once-in-a-lifetime experience, deep into the tropical forest… Uncage your spirit!
Featuring 4 stages of music, amazing decorations, shows and entertainers, bars, food stands, shops and UV body painting. Half Moon makes you feel like you are in a festival... in the tropical jungle, on an island in Thailand! It is an out-of-this-world experience of fun, party, music, arts and energy.
Doors open at 8 pm and the event runs until after sunrise. For those who hang-out from dusk to dawn, sunrise is always surreal! A moment like-no-other, that forges friendships and lasting memories.
The festival is located in a lush forest on the tropical island of Koh Phangan.
The legendary island where Full Moon Parties are held every month, Koh Phangan is a party island like no other. A unique and amazing destination. An experience that goes beyond parties: beaches, forest, waterfalls are really worth seeing. But what makes Koh Phangan even more unique is the lifestyle and attitude towards life of the people living there. The chilled, relaxed and non-commercial way of life so unique to the island.
The Half Moon Festival is organized in the Forest, north of the Ban Tai village. At mid-distance between Thong Sala and Haad Rin, the 2 main arrival piers of Koh Phangan. On the southern coast of the Island.
There is huge parking for bikes and many taxis going to-and-from the event all night long!
The story of Half Moon Festival began over 15 years ago on the island of Koh Phangan. At that time a young Dj from the island decided to move his events away from the beach, where Full Moon parties were taking place; and into the mysteries of the rainforest.
He found a beautiful area in the wild tropical forest and began growing his dream. His party paradise was a Tropical Wonderland that would come alive during every half moon night.
Nowadays the Half Moon Festival outshines other events on the island by the quality of its production and organization. Thousands of party people, experience seekers and global travelers celebrating the half moon, every two weeks, in the enchanted forest. All year-round, united as one under the electric sky.
