New Year Party Week on Koh Phangan 2013

11 Jan 2013

Woooops another Roundabout just flew by!
Did you notice?
Already 2 weeks into the new year! Feels like time is Flying! Phanganist caught a few moments here and there in the last New Year Week to make sure that we will not forget or let it go un noticed by. 

With an enormous amount of parties to choose from on New Year week Phanganist visited as many as possible without collapsing in the middle from pure party stress!

A week of Pre-party, Party and After-party where Phaganist followed almost every party with a smile and a camara!

If you are having any kind of trouble remembering where you were at times in this NEW YEAR week, the chances that you find yourself to check what you really did in one of our New Year Week galleries, are quite big! 

Follow the New Year Week on Phanganist day by day from the 28th Full Moon party till the Big Final at Baan sa Bai on the 4th!

Getting through the 21st December without any scars or severe traumas and realizing the world still kept on turning made the New Year crowds here on Phangan even more free and life assuring with a gratefulness for any next periods!

Hoping we learned a small lesson in Peace & Love again and that the next era of Earth will be one that we all as humas can be more proud of than this previous time period!

Happy New Era and a Blessed New Year to All !

On Phangang the whole week was a Super Buzz for everyone on the Island!

We began the New Year week on the 28th with the Full Moon at Tommy Resort and on 29th the Back yard morning of course.
Both Loi Lay and Jungle Experience on the 30th  and the New Year eve at Haad rin Full Moon Beach at Tommy Resort. Not forgetting the Back Yard afterparty on the 1st and Loi Lay and Sramanora with ending New Year parties on the 2end.
The 3rd we get to rest and on the 4th Half Moon Boogies again and finally Ban Sa Bai rounds up on the 5th this New Year with their Boom of an after party together with the returned "family" from the Koh Tao Experience.

With that we can all believe we did our best to bring the New Year on with Happy Dancing, Funny Nights, Freaky adventures and Best Intentions!

The Island has been full packed with tourist and travellers.

Business has been booming and people have been glooming!

In all the parties up to New Year the Happy crowds didn’t seem to think they needed rest before the Big Night.
All the parties have been packed with happy dancers where everybody seemed to give Full Power!


The Full Moon on 28th was of course well packed.

Resident and Guest Djs Pumping their Beats out everywhere from Cactus till Kangaroo.
SpaceMonkey with his spacey performance at Tommys together with Resident Sweetheart Graham Gold.

Always giving the crowd a good trip through progressive Deep House and electro adventures!

28th was the last Back Yard morning in the year 2012!  

Full of Leftovers from the Full Moon and New comers for the After Party itself. Famous for the Vibes and Sweet Boogies!

Just before the Experience Crowd went to Koh Tao and in the days where all the "Fallang-Family" had returned to Koh Phangan for the annual change!

Back Yards ”balcony” has never been more scary, freaked out by the kind of unstableness in the structure of the platform but such a fun party with all the Residents and Travellers in a Happy Mix!

Loi Lay on the 30th with their sweet floating theme nearly went under a few times so full it was! 

The pre New Year party on the 30th was giving us an idea of the amount of New Year celebrators with Djane Jadele and our Resident darling Darregh was Rocking the DanceFloor with their Funky beats.

Jungle experience with carnival vibes of colours and sound on 30th was better and bigger, more visual and musical than ever!

The Team there really made an effort to make the night special and beautiful! - as usual!

If this Movie is from a normal week night, then just try to imagine the amount of Happy Hippies, Freaks, Punks, Funked up Dudes and Dudettes, Dressed up and Dressed down Jungle Snackers!

With the New Year DJ Crew, Phangan Residents Pablo, KaonashiLance, Acrobat, and Rob they made sure that the night would be Boogied away! Alpha and Wonderboy super guest Djing as well!
Everyone loves to see their mates play so again the Jungle Experience had nearly as many local Fallang Dancers as New Year Visitors!

FireDancers Playing with their Hot toys around the dancefloor and even though the Rain came to make a small shower - the party was still the most pretty thing you have ever seen.

The Jungle Experience party went into the New Year with a party that promise big adventures in the next year!

If the previous year in Jungle has been a new era for The Jungle it seems like the next one is going to be even better!
This year Jungle made a lot of changes but all seemed to succed. The previous parties have been full and booming with happy crowds:

Let's just cross our fingers that the good Vibe will continue!

Loi Lay Floating Vibes, the Boat that will Rock you brought us an After-after party on the 2end!

Sweetly and more balanced than the previous Loi Lay party with residents, half year residents, locals, returned travelers and tourists. All guests who still couldn't find peace and needed just another Boogie!

Still now, in the after waves of the Bigger parties, there is a constant flow of parties, tourists and travellers.
Most of The “Family” is still here and will probably stay here for another month or two before going on to new adventures to meet again in the next Roundabout!

Phanganist wishes everyone a Happy New Year and Hope 2 see you all in Phanganist Galleries the next year.

Good Luck with All in 2013!
