Secret of the Festival

The year 1985 is a magical year in the history of the Full Moon Party Koh Phangan. About 30 people bore witness to the first edition of the Full Moon Party on Haad Rin Beach and to the magic that surrounded it. A few travelers decided to celebrate what they described as ‘the most beautiful view of the full moon on earth’.
Since then, every time when the bright full moon is shining, the crescent shaped beach of Koh Phangan is transforming into a fairy tale dominion. Be prepared to enjoy electronic dance music, psychedelic trance, techno, drum and bass, R&B and reggae. Until sunrise, enchanting sounds are to be heard from behind every palmtree on the beach, to far in the jungle.
