Black Moon Party is a night party like the Full Moon Party, but it’s smaller and its location is on Baan Tai Beach; with amazing decor, a super sandy venue, driving progressive beats & underground trance. Koh Phangan Black Moon Party Party is held once a month on dark moon night. About 300-500 of tourists from around Koh Phangan are gathered every month. Experience the essence of Koh Phangan’s music, art and culture. Located at the beautiful sandy beach at Mac Bay Resort. International DJ lineup every month with special guests. Hand made fluro decorations by ‘Magic Phangan’ family.

The Black Moon Party happens approximately 14 days before (or after) the infamous Full Moon Party. Unlike the Full Moon Party, there is only one sound system and Djs follow each other all night long playing their own tunes on the deck. Don’t expect a Free-Party, as most of the parties, apart from the Full Moon Party, have now an entry fee. But don’t worry as it’s still affordable to all, as only 300 THB will be asked, and it includes one free drink.

The music here is barely exclusively Techno Trance, for the pleasure of the crowd there, which loves it! And the atmosphere follows with a totally trippy scenery design, 100% psychedelic, with fluo paintings and cotton weavings arranged everywhere on the ground and in the trees and glowing with the black lights. A very good party, especially during the high season, when high quality international Djs are invited to play. It’s a favorite among ravers, as it’s still on the beach, but much closer to free-parties than the Full Moon Party.

Historically, this party was not as popular as the Full Moon Party or the Half Moon Party as it was deemed not to be as professionally set up as the others. However, many things have changed, progressed and been upgraded at the Black Moon Party so it’s definitely worth a visit! Again, many people say they prefer it than the FMP as there are normally less people giving it a more friendly vibe. The Black Moon Party has only one DJ deck but as its on the beach you can always go for a swim if you don’t like the tunes!

New bylaws regarding noise and disturbance have come into effect on Koh Phangan due to the growing number of parties located close to domestic areas. The Police and local officials have set new rules for closing times of many of the parties and The Black Moon party may be forced to close it’s party early, so if you want a long night to enjoy yourself then maybe arrive a little earlier than planned.

If you are staying at Haadrin Beach, then you will need to grab a taxi to get to the Black Moon Party as its located about 8 km away in Ban Tai village but there are taxi’s running to and from the party all night long!

    So much for affordable. It was 600 baht in June 2013. Never again. Deco and setting was great, and I liked some of the music but for the most part it was uninspired and repetitive mixing. Totally not worth it if you expect an interesting DJ set for such a huge entry fee. If you just want more or less the same dark tecnho track for 2 hours, then this is just what youโ€™re looking for.

    I visited the famous “Black moon party” on phangan 2 days ago, on 31 March 2014, and it was SO FAR FROM BEING GREAT ๐Ÿ™ it was a mediocre trance party with around 400-500 people, same repetitive tracks (I’m a big fan of psytrance and full-on since Sesto Sento, ananda shake, bizzare contact and 1200 micrograms parties in Israel) and this was SUCH A DISAPPOINTMENT.

    The organizers did NOTHING except putting couple low-quality decorations and placing the big tent with a little bit ultraviolet lights. No lasers or fire show or anything to entertain the public. until 1pm the dance floor was EMPTY, all of the visitors were sitting around waiting for a miracle ๐Ÿ˜€ lol.

    The location was great, on the mountain, amazing sunset. at 7pm before the party. but it has nothing to do with overall quality of the party which was low ๐Ÿ™ and that is SAD.

    Well, it was not worth the 500 entry fee at all. very medium quality party. not a good DJ sets. Many of israeli day-by-day parties are way better than this one!!!
