The Trance party scene has been the dominant scene on Koh Phangan island for many years.
Since the Full Moon party started more than 20 years ago the Trance parties have been the major attraction. In 2011 when the House music parties started to appear on the island followed by main venues such as the Jungle Experience and the Pirates bar the island started to change the main scene as well. The music went from Trance to Deep Tech House.
The Music is a combination of House Progressive music played between 10pm to midnight by resident DJ Boyonic and continues through the night with Trance music mixed by the owner of the Halfmoon and resident DJ Tripical and resident DJ Mystical. In addition the Halfmoon festival is often hosting famous international Trance DJs as Cosmic Tone, Psyko Jun and many more...
The party starts at 8pm with Live music shows and Art performances such as fire dancing and traditional Thai dancing and continues all night long till 7 in the morning.
The Blackmoon Culture party occurs about 2 weeks after the Full Moon party in Mac's Bay resort on Baan Tai beach. This party started about 13 years ago and have continued ever since. Many Trance music lovers arrive to the island especially on the this week to experience a Full Psy party right on the beach. They play proper dark and Psy Trance music all night. In the morning hours Progressive can be heard too.
The group producing the Blackmoon Culture is the Magic Phangan Team. This group is producing other main Trance parties such as the Ban Sabaii after party in Baan Tai and the famous Experience Festival on New Year eve. 3 daysfestival on Koh Tao Island (about 1 hour on a ferry from Koh Phangan).
During the high season the Magic Phangan team produce about 3 parties a week. After the Full Moon Party, Blackmoon Culture, Halfmoon Festival, Shiva Moon and of course after the big Experience Festival.
In addition to those parties, once in a while Magic Phangan performs an individual party (not an afterparty) Full On trance with a faster BPM than the usual Progressive music played in other nights.
The after parties starts during the high season (December to April) at 6am and continue during the all until 2am. During the low season it sometime starts at 6pm.
The venue is on the beach in Baan Tai and the party attendents are hopping between the dance floor, the beach bar and the sea for a chilled swim.
They host a party only during the Full Moon Party night and have two stages.
The play House music at the main stage from Graham Gold and other resident DJs and guests and at the other stage a Full-ON and Psy trance is kicking through the night.
The Venue have parties every night starting 10pm and continue till 2-4am.
The main party occurs during the Full Moon Party staring at 8pm and continue till 9 in the morning and sometimes even later, depending on how hot it is and how many people are still jumping on the dance floor..
Enjoy the vibe!! :)
