If you think the scene on world-renowned party island, Koh Phangan, is all about the Full Moon Party, think again!
Those awesome people who brought us Rhythm & Vines and Rhythm & Alps of New Zealand, now in their 10th year of mega success, have extended their arms into Thailand bringing with them the international dance scene and some of the planet’s biggest acts!
With a monthly festival under the sun and stars, the stereotype of the island is changing from minimal psy-trance to a unique blend of fresh new music styles and DJs!
Set in a secluded yet accessible beach venue amidst the palms of Baan Tai, three days before the full moon party, R&S brings you the next level of the Thai Beach Party Experience…
The International Dance Scene has landed on Koh Phangan!
A daytime event in the sunshine going through to a full night-time festival until sun-up with a huge tropical pool as the centre point of the dance floor, alongside white sandy beaches and views of surrounding islands.
There are three different music areas:
- The Main Stage with multiple genres, world class international DJs, and incredible sounds and lighting.
- The Electronic Lounge, your own nightclub on the beach, Liquid, House, Trance, DnB to Tech, sand dance floors and amazing cocktails.
- The JAM Chill Out Park, Koh Phangan’s premier live music show! A bustling live music area with international food and beverage, local talent, Thai presentation and open mic sessions.
And as if this paradise doesn’t already excite you enough, hold tight to your shades as you check out this impressive line up!

In its fourth month, August is set to be the biggest so far with headlining Drum n Bass DJ & Producer Mickey Finn; British and prominent International Club DJ Brandon Block; local legend Graham Gold; alongside local Phangan DJs such as DJs Andy Newman, Absolud and Darragh Casey and live entertainment including Koh Phangan’s very own ‘The Jam’ appearing live!
One of the original rave scene Hardcore and Jungle pioneers and still leading the way today, Micky Finn has been smashing it up on the rave scene since the days of ’87 and has blown the roof off more buildings than you can count. Apart from DJ-ing extensively, he’s best known for appearing on tracks “Some Justice” and “Bass Shake” as “featured” artist of Urban Shakedown. Along with running his own labels Finn People Productions and its sister label Finn S, he also co-founded label Urban Takeover.
Brandon Block has carried a legendary status tag ever since being one the first residents on the Space terrace, Ibiza. His residency was arguably one of the initial driving forces behind the club’s worldwide notoriety as the place to party. As well as starting various clubs in the early 90’s in the UK, his DJ-ing has also encompassed being one of the first DJ’s in Dubai holding residencies in no fewer than four Dubai nightclubs. Infamous for his party spirit and his ability to capture that spirit in his sets, Brandon brings raw energy to the dance-floor. With a wealth of musical experience and a staunch champion of the funkier end of house, his continued success means Brandon Block is still one of the UK’s most sought after DJs.
The Main Stage – one of three different music areas
