The first Full Moon Party started as a small Beach Party back in 1985, where a small group of travelers had found this amazing and untouched island and the beautiful Sunrise beach in Hadrin. Some stories say that the people were celebrating a birthday, and some say that the Full Moon was so beautiful on Koh Phangan, that they wanted to celebrate it - only they will know! They kept making this party every month and it has over time turned into an World's known event, that now draws a crowd of about 20,000–30,000 every full moon night.
This party is without a doubt one of the biggest and coolest beach Parties in the world. Each year the party grows with the increasing number of party people that return to the island, bringing their mates and spreading the word doing their travel through Southeast Asia.
The Party is a huge setup on Hadrin Beach where the party carries on until the sunrise. The bars on the beach play music all night such as trance, drum and bass, house, dance and reggae. Everyone is dressed i neon colours, painted in body paint dancing and going crazy to the music under the stars, drinking buckets and feeling maybe more free than ever. You will be surrounded by fireskipping ropes, fire shows that is lighting up the night, and people dancing like they never danced before. You will be apart of a "world" that you never would have dreamed of, and you will leave the party with a memory for the rest of you life!
