If you’ve studied your international party guide, you’d know that the Full Moon Festival is an all-night beach party that takes place on the island of Ko Pha Ngan in Thailand, the day before every Full Moon. Well this year you don’t have to go nearly as far to get a taste of what everyone’s talking about.
NYC’s version of the Full Moon Festival takes place on The Beach at Governor’s Island, Friday, August 8th. Featuring two stages, 13 artists (and more TBD!) and a number of fantastic food vendors, this party is sure to be second best to the real thing (except you’re still going to have to pay NYC prices for a massage the next day. My friend is in Thailand right now and said they are like, $5 an hour. YEAH, I KNOW – $5 FOR AN HOUR. But I digress . . . )
Now, Let’s talk lineup:
Main Stage: EMEFE // Wave Racer // Le Youth // Son Lux // Aston Shuffle // Delorean
Courtyard: JDH & Dave P// Chela // Penguin Prison // The Knocks // Vikas Sapra
It’s a full moon! Let’s get weird, y’all. Tickets are AVAILABLE HERE and start at just $30. That’s almost Thailand prices. Almost.
