Black Moon Party Koh Phangan
The parties on Koh Phangan follow the cycle of the moon: full moon, half moon, black moon, half moon and back again. The black moon party is a smaller and more intimate beach party.
Note that the government announced that from april 2015 only full moon parties will be allowed on Koh Phangan.“That means no more dark moon parties, jungle parties, half moon parties and the like.” according to an article in the Bangkok Post. However this is Thailand where it is also officially not allowed to buy and sell product copies so the question is whether this will really be enforced by the local police.
The Black Moon Party on Koh Phangan attracts up to 1,500 people to the beach of Ban Tai each month. The party takes place once a month, 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after full moon and the entrance fee is around 300 BHT, (6 Euros) including a free drink. You can expect a cheerful beach party which is much smaller than the full moon party and therefore has a more intimate and welcoming atmosphere. The Black Moon Party is located in a stunning location: not only that Ban Tai beach is one of the nicest areas in Koh Phangan, the breathtaking views over Koh Samui Island give the dance floor a special touch.
The Black Moon Party ambience includes: a show case of shining neon-art and unique UV decorations which combine both beautifully with the jungle background. The music played is mind blowing full-on psych trance, underground house and other types of pumping music. Another thing that adds up to the party mood is the exciting show of swinging fire sticks.
