Of course it was going to be cool: The Full Moon fest is based on a series of monthly all-night dance parties on the Thai island of Ko Pha Ngan, and this year took place on the balmy Friday before August's full moon, the very peak of summer. This most select of festivals caps its crowd at 5,000 and performers included the crisply cool likes of Delorean, the Knocks, Claptone, Son Lux, the Aston Shuffle, Le Youth, Penguin Prison, Wave Racer, Young & Sick, Chele, JDH & Dave P and Emefe. We sent our photographer to go mingle with the beautiful people—poor thing! Check out our favorite shots in the slideshow above.

Electric Zoo Festival 2015

We were lucky enough to spend Labor Day weekend on Randalls Island for NYC's biggest electronic dance music event of the year. The seventh edition of Electric Zoo Festival hosted top DJs from around the world, including personal favorites of ours such as the Martinez Brothers and Get Real (Green Velvet and Dirtybird's Claude VonStroke). Check out some highlights from the festival in our photos below! RECOMMENDED: Complete Electric Zoo guide

Wild Flag at Celebrate Brooklyn!: Live photos (SLIDE SHOW)

Celebrate Brooklyn! at the Prospect Park Bandshell is a lovely venue, and one of our favorites for seeing an outdoor show during the summer. Still, the concert space felt like an odd choice for last week’s triple bill of Ted Leo, Mission of Burma and Wild Flag—which is not to say the show was a disappointment, but it’s definitely weird to see veteran punk-rockers like Leo or MoB in a space where the crowd is genteel and seated the entire time. RECOMMENDED: Complete guide to Celebrate Brooklyn! In any case, all three were in fine form that evening. Leo, who typically plays at least one outdoor show per summer, kicked things off with a solo set that included well-known tunes (“Me and Mia,” “Bottled in Cork”) as well as a few new numbers. (This Park Slope resident also appreciated his goofy shout-out to Arecibo, a local car service, as he explained the ease with which he got to the venue that night.) His performance was followed by a blistering set from Boston rockers Mission of Burma, which is touring behind its excellent new album, Unsound. The crowd finally got to its feet for Wild Flag, which put on a characteristically great show (I’ve now seen them six times, and the band never disappoints). The outfit's tight set included every song from its debut album, as well as a few covers; in a nod to the New York audience, the band played Television’s “See No Evil” and Patti Smith’s “Ask the Angels” during the encore.

MoMA PS1's Warm Up 2015

This past Saturday, we went to MoMA PS1 for one of our favorite summer music parties, Warm Up. With this year’s extravagant outdoor art installation, as well as a stellar lineup (including Moritz von Oswald, who made it in our list of the 10 best acts to see at Warm Up 2015), the day-time party proved to live up to its expectations yet again. Check out our favorite photos below, and, if you haven’t done so, be sure to stop by Warm Up soon—the series ends September 5. RECOMMENDED: Full guide to MoMA PS1 Warm Up

St. Vincent at Celebrate Brooklyn concert photos

Annie Clark topped off a big summer—which included a St. VincentTime Out New York cover and well-received sets at Pitchfork Festival and Live at Letterman—by closing out the 2014 Celebrate Brooklyn series at the Prospect Park Bandshell. At the packed free show, Clark ran through most of her newest, self-titled album, as well as selections from her previous three records. Judging by all the love, it won't be too long before she winds up playing NYC again, though unlikely at a venue as picturesque as Prospect Park. RECOMMENDED: Complete guide to Celebrate Brooklyn!
