You may have heard of Koh Phangan’s legendary Full Moon Party but have you heard of the Half Moon Party and Jungle Party? Add these to your bucket list, they’re just as epic! 

What is a Half Moon Party? 🎉

A two-night festival to celebrate the half moon! Imagine this: a raging festival either at a gorgeous tropical beach club OR in the middle of a magical forest (you choose) with non-stop music, vibrant energy, and of course, neon body paint. Just like the famous Full Moon Party, there are like-minded travellers from all around the world, raving on the dance floor to the DJ's beats in Thailand. It’s a backpacker's dream! 

Where is the Half Moon Party? 🌴

On Thailand’s party island of Koh Phangan at Ban Tai. The festival takes place in two parts at two locations perfect for an unforgettable night!

Night one is at Harmony Beach Club - the perfect beach party venue for lounging or dancing and staying topped up on delicious tropical cocktails.

And night two is in the middle of Ban Tai’s pristine jungle - a one-of-a-kind location to let your wild side out!

Get the best of both with a two-day pass.

What should I expect from a Half Moon Party? 🍻

An epic night of all things festival. With alcohol flowing, beats pumping out, and like-minded party-goers raving on the dance floors - it’s a magical experience. The festival has 3 stages: the Tribal Stage, the Funky Stage, and the Urban Stage. So there’s something for everyone’s music taste. The Tribal Stage is the main one, with the biggest DJs that will be mixing the best bangers. The Funky stage is the place to be if you’re a lover of house. And if classic hip-hop and R&B is your vibe then head to the Urban stage.

What is a Jungle Party? 🐲

Calling all house & techno lovers, this one is for you! Let your wild side out at this jungle party in… you guessed it,  the middle of Koh Phangan’s jungle! It’s one of the best music festivals in Asia known for its carnival atmosphere. Enjoy a night of backpackers, performers, and jungle residents getting wild on the dance floor.
