A full moon occurs every 29 days, but the Full Moon Festival on Governors Island only happens once a year. Inspired by monthly, all-night full-moon parties in Thailand, the NYC version is an annual end-of-summer celebration featuring a diverse line-up of artists of all varieties celebrating the cosmic qualities of the new moon. This year’s headliners include Delorean, the Knocks, Claptone, Son Lux and many more. Produced by Matte Projects, Full Moon Fest is now in its fourth year as the must-attend August beach party, selling out each go-around. This year is no different thanks to the great collection of fun and dance-y artists soundtracking the evening, so act fast and come ready to howl.
