An endless passion for music, for Awakening.
for Discovery, for People, for Life.

The story of Half Moon Festival began over 15 years ago, on the island of Koh Phangan, in the Kingdom of Thailand. At that time a young Dj from the island decided he would move his events away from the beach, where the Full Moon parties were taking place; and into the mysteries of the rainforest.
He found a beautiful area in the wild tropical forest and began growing his vision.
His party paradise was a Tropical Wonderland that would come alive during every half moon night.
Nowadays the Half Moon Festival outshines other events on the island by the quality of its production and organization.
Thousands of party people, experience seekers and global travelers celebrating the half moon, every two weeks in the enchanted forest.
​All year-round, united as one under the electric sky. ​

With 3 dance-floors, amazing decorations, shows & entertainers, bars, food stands, shops & UV bodypainting, Half Moon makes you feel like you are in a festival… in the tropical jungle, on an island in Thailand!
​It is an out-of-this-world experience of fun, party, music, arts and energy.
The line-up includes a mix of international Djs and live acts, as well as homegrown talents.
Doors open at 8pm and the event runs until the morning. For those who hang-out from dusk to dawn, sunrise is always surreal.
​A moment like-no-other, that forges friendships & memories.

"Uncage your spirit"
