Half Moon Party Koh Phangan is an appetizer for the Full Moon Party
The Half Moon Party is held in the Ban Khai jungle of Koh Phangan. It’s hosted by a private company called Half Moon Festival. You’ve heard all about the Full Moon Party but what about the Half Moon Party? While it may not boast the 30,000 attendees like the Full Moon, the Half Moon is definitely worth checking out.
In fact, we recommend going to both parties because, why not?
When and where is the Half Moon Party?
The Half Moon Party happens every 2 weeks: 1 week before and 1 week after the Full Moon Party. Check out this graphic showing off every 2018 Half Moon Party. The tropical forest where the Half Moon Party goes down is on close to the Ban Tai village, on Koh Phangan island. Although Koh Phangan is famous for its parties, it’s also home to enough beauty to spend weeks on the island.

3 Dance Floors Boasting Thailand’s Best DJs
Or at least that’s what the hype man on stage has been telling everyone. Maybe not the greatest DJs on the planet but you’re bound to have a great time no matter what. Take our word for it!
If you’re anything like me, you’ll be spending most of your time in The Cave for the trap, hip hop and R&B. High energy trap shows are hard to come by in southeast Asia, so it’s hard to pass up.
The G Floor plays house music all night long, which is where you’ll usually see a (somewhat) younger crowd. If you like more mainstream EDM music, be sure to get to this stage earlier in the night. Between 11PM and midnight should do the trick.
Finally, the Main Floor features a psy-trance and progressive lineup. You definitely don’t want to miss out on this part of the Half Moon Party since it’s often the spot that more of the lighting and effects budget goes toward.
Wondering how long to stay on Koh Phangan?
If you’ve got the time for it, we recommend staying on Koh Phangan a full week. Enough time to check out the beaches, jungle hikes and both the Half Moon Party and Full Moon Party.
It can be tough putting together epic adventures you’ll always remember, especially on an island you’ve never visited before. Fortunately, we’ve got you covered.
Come stay with us at Slumber Party Koh Phangan and we’ll get you sorted!
