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.
