The Blackmoon Culture in Koh Phangan 


…these 3 words are the main motivation behind the famous Blackmoon Culture.


Almost as famous as its sister parties, the Half Moon Party and Full Moon Party, the Black Moon Party – held under the name Blackmoon Culture – brings Mac’s Bay of Baan Tai Beach (on the island’s southern coast) to life with great Underground Trance and Progressive Dance beats played by skilled local and international DJs.

The ‘culture’ part of the name comes from a greater focus on art and other aspects of the party experience than you will see at the Full Moon Parties on Haad Rin Beach. The party has a more chilled-out hippie vibe than the larger and more famous Full Moon events and the music is generally much less mainstream. Limited in size by the confines of the small beach, you will usually find about 1,000 other revellers there, with more of a focus on enjoying the music than getting blackout drunk.

Lose yourselves into the magical realms of music and arts and breath-taking views on the beach in Ban Tai and eye candy with their decoration.

When is it? 

Every month, the Blackmoon culture is held on the night of the new moon.
