BANNED! Techno Party Battlefield in Baan Tai Village on the Party Island of Koh Phangan



Koh Phangan Banned Party 00
Koh Phangan Banned Party!

Baan Tai village, located directly at the south coast between world infamous Full Moon Party beach Haad Rin and main town Thongsala, used to be a quiet little village where life was still livable and everyone could enjoy the tranquil and relaxing nature far away from any touristic hotspots on the Island Of Madness formerly also known as Koh Phangan Paradise Island.

But as nothing is more permanent than change little & quiet Baan Tai village has been finally transformed over the last couple of years into something someone could easily call a Techno Party Battlefield.

On the daily Baan Tai village techno party menu we got all sorts of different ‘Come and Satisfy Your Soul’ style Techno Parties like, the Half Moon Festival, The Black Moon Culture, The Jungle Experience and our beloved evil Shiva Moon Party Family.

Finally we recently have been added another techno war zone into our Baan Tai Techno Party Valley called ‘The Dark Psy of the Moon’ and then just 2 days ago Koh Phangan Island News Headquarters received another email about an additional Techno Party a bit further up the road to Thong Nai Pan. Despite the distance you could still here this distinctive bum-bum-bum sound throughout the night in the Baan Tai Techno Party Valley.

And for the ever hungry Techno Party Alien we finally managed to allow the Baan Sabai Day Party to happen which offers day and night after hour parties nearly every day during the high season directly in Baan Tai village.

Baan Tai Techno Party Battlefield Valley started a few years ago with the Half Moon Festival soon celebrating their 7th Anniversary on 16th February 2009.

Back in the days when all this terrible Techno Party Battlefield Valley Experiment started things were quite different. The sound systems weren’t that powerful and you only had the Half Moon Festival twice a month plus the Black Moon Culture once a month during the new moon night. And again … the sound systems weren’t that powerful!

But as monkeys see so monkeys do and sooner or later even not the shiniest village brainiac finally figured out that there is loads and loads of easy money to make with organizing so called ‘Come and satisfy your soul’ style techno parties.

Farang choob maak maak …

So before the village people could realize what was going on new Techno Battlefield Parties popped out of the ground like Phangan Magic Mushrooms on a moist and humid Sunday morning.

Magic mushroom types like The Jungle Experience, The Baan Sabai Day Party, The Evil Shiva Moon Party Family, The Dark Psy of the Moon and probably more to come in the close future?

So at one point local village people got upset because of the lack of sleep and went to local Koh Phangan Authorities and asked for help. But at that point it already was far too late … the money driven techno virus had already spread and infected especially those authorities who are supposed to make sure that law and order is in place.

Local village people collected signatures, filed complaints at the local police station and district office, had an endless number of meetings with local authorities and party organizers, published articles in the main Thai newspapers but only to finally realize that there is indeed no law on the Island Of Madness.

Instead the Thai Law, of course strongly protected by local authorities, can be seen as a rough guide on when you have to start paying money to the local cops and administration office to turn a blind eye on any situation.

You wanna do some all night techno party? Well … the law says you have to close at 2 a.m. but if you like we could arrange a special package deal for you 😉 Just hand us over those tiny printed sheets of paper and we will make sure everything goes as planned. Shut down at 2 a.m.? No worries 😉 Smoking weed? Well … who cares 😉 Drugs? Ah … get out of here 😉 And if the neighbors start complaining about the terrible noise we cause throughout the night? Neighbors … terrible noise … what’s that supposed to mean. We are the law … we take care of everything else … don’t you worry about a damn thing! We will make sure that your business is well protected 😉 Money makes the earth spin around the sun … just try to remember that!

Well … does this sound like the guardian of the law … or is this more like organized crime? Mafia like structures? You better decide …

Which brings us basically to our final message and Koh Phangan Island News Headquarters is more than aware that this will actually piss off many of the Techno War Party Organizers here on Koh Phangan Island. The techno party organizers will get angry … they will get upset … but so are we, the people living in Baan Tai village area, who are forced to live with the shit you party organizer have brought to our village even without asking us nor thinking about your neighbors in any way!

Your Techno Party War behavior is really more than disrespectful and now that you guys even know how your neighbors feel about your all night long bom-bom-bom techno noise disturbance you don’t even care nor show any plans to improve the situation in some way. Selfish disrespectful behavior or like the Thais call it ‘Hen Gae Tua’!

The village people have asked you nicely many, many times to improve this Techno Party Battlefield War situation in Baan Tai village. Local village people suggested many times that you move the Techno Parties out of the residential area of Baan Tai village but up to this point you simply still ignore the community around you and keep playing the game of power, money, greed and corruption like you are soulless humans while still propagating slogans like ‘Satisfy Your Soul’ or ‘Respect the Nature’!

What about the souls of the people living in Baan Tai village area? What about ‘Respect Your Neighbors’?

Finally because of the ruthless, disrespectful, dark aura behavior of the local Techno Party organizers and the non-existent willingness to improve the current situation Koh Phangan Island News headquarters has finally decided to banish ALL techno Parties in and around the residential area of Baan Tai village!

Banned Baan Tai Techno Party list as follows:

* The Evil Shiva Moon Party Family
* Half Moon Festival
* The Jungle Experience
* The Dark Psy Of The Moon
* Black Moon Culture
* Baan Sabai Day Party

and probably more to come!

Reasons for the final techno party ban in Baan Tai village:

* Loud & terrible noise disturbance throughout the night until late morning!
* Sleepless nights for the local community in Baan Tai village area!
* Even though party organizers know about the trouble they are causing no plans are yet established to improve the situation in any way!
* Disrespectful, ruthless & selfish behavior against the local Thai & foreign community!
* Or as the local Thais say ‘Hen Gae Tua’!
* Sponsoring of corruption and mafia like structures (local police & district office)!
* Destroying of local house rental businesses!
* Non-Human behavior!

And for all the techno party freaks out there who support this ruthless behavior by participating in those so called ‘Come And Satisfy Your Soul’ type techno parties, Koh Phangan Island News would like to create awareness by simply encouraging you to NOT participate in ANY techno parties in and around ANY residential areas on Koh Phangan Island.

Simply be aware, you dear techno hungry aliens, that hundreds of people are not able to sleep in a decent way, some people even have to leave their houses and find a place somewhere else to sleep, while you guys, with your chemical altered states of mind desperately try to satisfy your souls!

Please be aware of the trouble you are causing for the local community and DO NOT SUPPORT any of those ruthless & disrespectful techno parties. Instead try to start a discussion with local party organizers and point them to the right direction. Tell them that you would feel a lot better knowing that the local community will not suffer in any way. Please spread the word and create awareness to finally improve Koh Phangan’s Techno Party community – thanks!

There is always a better solution if someone is only willing to look for it. This is not about simply shutting down all techno parties on Koh Phangan Island. This is about improving things, respecting each other so finally all different communities can live peacefully and happy with each other. Does this make sense to you?

Join us in becoming human again! Spread the word and help make Koh Phangan a better place!

Thanks …

    Shut the f**k up Becki and Islander. We want party and don’t care a shit on people in Bantai and the other villages. This is our party island. Go somewhere else if you want to sleep. That’s the way it goes. That’s Thailand. Corruption is normal for Thai people. The Thai people get what they deserve!

    Buuum Buuum Shiva Moon Festival

        i like this kind of partys and was in kpg two times.i wondered about the close distance from the party-grounds to baan tai . i hope that the people from baan tai area can find a way to have everynight sleep.but i hope too that there is some place in the jungle with no neighborhood for the farrang(who bring the money to kpg!)to have party.because,if it is not possible to have party in kpg,i can go anywhere else in amazing thailand.
        …and for the dumb and stupid comment of this SATWAH who have no respect and says he likes party too,i am very ashamed and like to say a very big sorry to every thai.may he get wiser soon!

      To SATWAH
      Your words can show what kind of person you are!. You don’t care a shit on people in Bantai and the other villages, just care a your own shit! pretty selfish isn’t it? This is not a payty island, maybe it is only in your openion and small community. We will not go anyway if we want to sleep, as we want to sleep in our home with is our grand-dad and grand-pa where here in this village more than 100 years,before you’re born. We will never live our home village.
      Your words are very selfish, un-educated for us to hear. It’s very unacceptable really as you see only your point of view.
      I wish if you have family, your parents, your children , your grand parents located at this village. Maybe you can understand what we fight for better.
      This is very good artical. As it coulds be nice of all the organiser of parties have a meeting together to show more respect to the people in the village and make it better. Our point is we just don’t want this loud party in the residental area.
      The islander.

      I think you should go out from Phangan than another people because i was born here and all my family here in Bann Nue and Bann Nok and Bann Kai ,we hate all the party in this area. And i also don’t want corruption in Thailand. I think many people also don’t want that why now we have PAD in Thailand.

      Well … to make things a 100% sure I just went to Patrik from the Baancom Headquarters which happens to be located just next to the Baan Sabai After Hour Party. From his sleeping room window you have direct visual access to the Baan Sabai Day Party!

      So it says that officially the after hour party will be closed at 2 a.m. but the awful truth is that most of the times closing hour is around 4 a.m.

      If they don’t have as much visitors they close earlier some times but in general one can say open end …

      Anyway … in my opinion it is not about closing at 2 a.m. … or 12 a.m. … or even 3 a.m.

      It’s about that Baan Sabai After Hour Party is also located DIRECTLY in the middle of a village where people try to get they deserved sleep.

      Of course, Baan Sabai is not that loud compared to all the other Techno War Party Zones but still someone can hear this distinctive bum bum bum sound … go ask Patrik if you like.

      Again … move the Baan Sabai After Hour Party out of Baan Tai village -> PROBLEM SOLVED!

      Why is that so difficult to understand?

      greetings
      Becki

        – Police Office or
        – District Office.
        Just to give them a little taste of what we, our families, and our kids have to suffer every 2 or 3 nights.

    This show the real face of this party people. They are very self-confident now. They think nothing can touch them because the police is on their corrupted side. This really makes me sick. I hope one day people will stand up and fight for their rights.

    We have enough of this drugged Cheap Charly’s. They spend their money only for parties, drugs and cheap bungalows. Only a few people have profit from them. And the worst thing is that they keep other tourist away because they give Koh Phangan a very bad reputation. In the international press you can read the word “Drug Parties” many times in connection to Koh Phangan.

    How far do all this involved people want to go to destroy Phangan Island?

        If you can read and followed all the articles before and if you have something we call brain than you would have realized that Becki is talking for hundreds of villagers which can’t express themself on the internet. He is living with them, understands the culture and the language. Do you?? This lovely Thais live here, born here and they don’t get anything of your drug money, they just want to live in peace with their families like they did before you selfish drugheads showed up here. YOU have to go home! But I doubt that you can act like this in your home country, the locals there and the officials never would accept this.
        I feel very sad that people are so selfish. In what kind of world we are living?

      a question thats not be raised about these parties is do any of the people who run them actualy stay in the village at all?

      i bet none of them do and by not staying there they never get bothered by the other parties.

      maybe if they did and had thier familys losing sleep all the time they would get the message and do somthing

      just my 2 pence worth

    Reference previous posting – yes, all the owners of these parties and all night bars do not live in those areas and more important nor do their families or children. Look at hadrin – the Drop in bar is run by a bunch of Thai staff – the owner is in bangkok and his nephew is running the bar but lives somewhere else. Same with cactus – the owner lives at lighthouse bungalows at the far end of the town. These two bars are the noisiest all night musik and the owners sit at home watching Thai soap operas while leaving all the poor people who live or rent rooms in the area to suffer. … now its getting worse Drop in Bar has built a swimming pool and now is advertising a pool party and you think u got it bad in ban tai.

      yeah the owner of cactus – dam – does live at the lighthouse, but he is a phangan original as is all of his family, thats why he used to have a lot of power, but that seems to be dwindling now!! as for the HAMAS comment whatta cunt, is people from isreal and palastine who started bringing all the problems to the island in the first place cos no other country is dumb enough to let them in!!

        thanks for the reply about the people running the parties not living in the village

        just as i suspected they dont live there or care about the villagers

        well just an idea but why not load up a truck for a few nights with a set of massive speakers and park outside there houses and play the same crappy music for them all night and see how long it takes them to run out in the street shouting and telling you to keep the noise down.

        give them a dose of there own medicine so to speak

      You guys damaged our island by noise. Can you use your brain please? that we need to make the zone for the parties then everyone can be happy. Maybe in France they don’t have the rule about this? We have that we will never see you too 🙂
      If Greenland have nice warm weather like here then we willing to move to live in Greenland:) What make you think that we are crazy? Just because we begging you to make a party zone? and not being happen that you make party in our village? I can see that you got really brainless !!

        Exactly my thoughts! That’s this kind of social security tourists behavior who made us leave the island a few years ago.

    I don’t know why people make a big fuzz out of it. The parties just have to close at 2am, not close for good. Therefore they still have 7 hours in the dark if they start 7pm. That is still a long time for a good party. Of course, it will take some transition time for the people to get use to it, but c’mon it is like the rest of the Thailand (world!?) and people still go to parties, it is not end of the parties. People go to those parties are here for holidays, they are at liberty to join the parties earlier.
