We were expecting a huge party, we arrived around 2am...maximum 300 ppl, mostly really young ppl by the way. The music is just fine, local DJ’s for 1500 baths. Buckets are around 750 baths inside. The atmosphere sucks and there is nothing great about this...More

By far the most professional festival I've been to in Thailand - with 3 stages, DJs and performers from all around the world, fire shows and a massive lighting and sound system arrangement. You honestly can't find a party experience like this anywhere else.

It’s 1,500 baht entry fee if you pay at the gate, but you can get a slight discount online at 1,350 baht. Still, the entry fee is an absolute rip-off considering the size of the venue, the music played and the price of drinks. The...More

Here's the deal with the Half Moon Festival: This is an event put on by a company that specializes in festivals and because of this you have to buy a ticket to get in. The ticket is 1500 baht at the doors. You can buy...More

Dec 29th party. We were ready to go. We like Psy-Trance. But then we saw the 1500 baht price tag. That's $45 US per person, plus $30 US round trip for a taxi. $120 to go hear complete unknown DJ's while utterly sober (we don't...More

Not what I came to Thailand for. Drinks are expensive & the atmosphere was flat. This experience didn’t feel unique. I had more fun on the moto taxi back to my hotel.

Avoid!! Essentiallt was a modern festival in the jungle! Was not authentically Thai at all! For the standard back packer I would recommend the actual full moon party! Here there were three stages or areas- one of them, the Cave was insanely packed, you could...More
