If you are a superstitious person, you may associate the monthly presence of a full moon with heightened spiritual activity, or believe in its ability to predict spooky or unexpected events. What’s more, not only does the full moon produce weird behavior; it also serves as the perfect excuse to party! Since the 1980’s, Thailand’s island of Ko Pha Ngan has boasted crazy parties along the beaches of Haad Rin, which once a month becomes packed with travelers eager to party until the moonlight meets the sunrise. The celebration owes its popularity to a few tourists who realized that the moon-lit white sand beaches of Thailand had amazing party potential. Today, the Full Moon Party attracts tens of thousands of partygoers and provides non-stop entertainment and fun on the crescent-shaped beaches of Haad Rin. Starting at dusk, the event takes off in beachside clubs, where the DJ’s blast a variety of music, from reggae to techno to trance and more. At some point in the night the sky explodes into a firework display, and is not fully complete without fire jugglers and other crazy forms of entertainment.
Sure, it’s probably a bit unrealistic to get to Thailand in this economy and everything…Which is just one reason why for just 10€ you can join Nightlife Madrid in the spirit of the Full Moon party! To honor the biggest moon in the past 68 years, which will be extra-visible this upcoming weekend of November 12th and 13th, Nightlife Madrid will be hosting a pubcrawl starting at Star Coyote 54 and jumping to some surprise locations around the city before partying till sunrise at JOY!
