Hi there!

Anyone knows of some good old-style beach raves with trance music, or similar, in Thailand? Something in July and not northern would be great. I've heard of Full Moon Party but for what I've seen in videos and photos it's really mainstream and not the spirit I'm looking for at all... Just a bunch of foreigners wanting to get drunk in bars look-alike the ones you see in Miami Beach.. I'm so sad, I thought I would find loads of true free-spirit fests with nice psychedelic music.. in a beach.. or in the middle of a forest... Please heeeelp!! Eheheh, I'm trying to sound dramatic now but really I'd appreciate some suggestions :)

that would be half or new moon parties also on ko phangnan. you have to understand that with the influx of travelers over the years, what started as a cool place to hang out and have a drum circle is over run with international travelers who, yes indeed, wish to get drunk. you also have to understand that because of the WANTS of the travelers, Thailand has lost a lot of their culture. You're probably better off wandering and partying with locals. there are no raves in SE Asia, that are what you are requesting here. There are much like the rest of the world, dubstep. however, you can check out Ko Lanta for a more laid back local feel.
