Every month, Thailand’s most gorgeous beaches lend themselves to a longstanding tradition among international partygoers. The gathering are referred to as Full Moon Parties, and they are celebrations of the completion of the Lunar Cycle, complete with music, performance art and dancing barefoot in the sand. Sounds pretty magical, right?
Thankfully, you don’t have to purchase a round trip plane ticket to Asia get in on the action. The event masterminds of MATTE bring their very own interpretation of these parties to The Governors Island Beach Club, August 21st -22nd. Full Moon Fest promises to offer two days of fun in the sun and dance moves in the moonlight. For the first time ever, Full Moon Fest has been expanded to include two full days of musical performances, art installations, gourmet food and spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline.

Electronic music fans will love the Saturday roster which includes a range of artists from techno superstar Black Coffee to masked beat crusader of most versatile proportions, SBTRKT, whose remixes of Basement Jaxx, M.I.A. and Radiohead tracks have made him one to watch. Sunday brings a pop and indie rock-inspired lineup with singer/songwriter Santigold and the Allah-Las providing plenty of reasons to sit back and refresh with specialty cocktails and jammin’ guitar riffs.
