Throughout the music festival off-season, battling the cold and bitter winter, we all find ourselves twiddling our thumbs and wishing we could once again bask in the glorious summer sunshine.
Thankfully, Koh Phangan and Berlin-based promoters 5 Senses have the 2nd edition of their boutique festival set along the white and sandy picturesque beaches of Thong Nai Pan, on the island of Koh Phangan in Thailand.
5 Senses Thailand Festival is just the remedy needed for those dreaded winter blues.
Having transported the heart of Berlin to Hamburg, Warsaw, and San Francisco to name just a few locations, the globe-trotting techno and house specialists have now brought their vision to Thailand's coastal paradise, in amongst the lush flora and fauna.
Immersing local Thai culture with European influences, the festival promises to be far more than an exhibition for what's expected to be an impressive roster of DJ's - 5 Senses have previously hosted the likes of Betoko, Kaiserdisco, and Supernova at their famed worldwide events.
The burgeoning underground house and techno scene in Koh Phangan can be attributed to the faithful admirers of the genres, along with the stunning scenery. 5 Senses' vision is to combine these established factors and create an altogether new entity on the grander scale.
With fire shows, high rope dancers, entertainers, advanced visual production, a wide variety of world foods, and the finest hotels and hostels on offer, this unique location guarantees the ideal winter-getaway with a heady mix of beachside relaxation, and non-stop hedonistic partying. Not to mention the island's gorgeous waterfalls and secret beaches...
The beauty of 5 Senses Thailand Festival, however, is that the location is only a short distance from numerous other resorts.
Echo Beach Backpackers, Hansa Resort at Ban Tai, and Anantara Resort & Spa at Tong Nai Pan are a matter of minutes away, meaning that you can plan your journey to the festival whilst checking out some of the best and most popular resorts and restaurants that Koh Phangan has to offer.
Rather than shivering yourself to sleep amidst the cold winter, just think, you could be lazing by the crystalline blue waters and partying till your heart's content at 5 Senses Thailand Festival this coming February.
