Full Moon Party 2019

Since the start, the Full Moon Party on Koh Phangan turned out to be one of the biggest party events in South East Asia. Every month there are about 30,000 party people coming together from all around the world. Each bar has its own DJ’s. So you will hear all types of music loudly blasting onto the beach every few feet. The beach itself is lined with people selling the (in)famous buckets. Fire dancers putting on shows. And little booths selling glow-in-the-dark face paint. By the end of the night you will see people passed out on the beach… and lost flip-flops littering the beach looking for new owners.

1. Facts and Figures

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. The story goes that these few travelers decided to celebrate ‘the most beautiful view of the full moon on earth’.

Since then, every time during the full moon, the crescent shaped beach of Koh Phangan is transforming into a fairy tale dominion. Thousands of people are coming together to enjoy all kinds of music. From EDM, psychedelic trance and techno, to drum & 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.
