The Music Never Stops at Ko Pha Ngan’s Half Moon Festival with JBL Professional

Partygoers heading to the beautiful island of Ko Pha Ngan for the Half Moon Festival can look forward to a more immersive experience as they dance the night away at the three party zone areas (Prime Stage, G-Floor, The Cave) due to a modern upgrade of its 10 year old sound system by JBL Professional Solutions in partnership with Mahajak Development Co. Ltd.

The Half Moon Festival is an outdoor dance music event on Thailand’s fifth largest island, Koh Pha Ngan, held during the half-moon, one week before and one week after the full moon. This highly anticipated bi-weekly event attended by tourists across the globe, has been the island’s best festival for more than 21 years and can accommodate up to 3,000 people attending.

“The client was looking to revamp their old audio system with a modernized system for better sound management as the previous system was more than a decade old,” said a spokesperson for Mahajak Development Co. Ltd. “The old system had had low frequency blind spots which sound engineers could not control, but with the new JBL series of subwoofers and active speakers all sound is managed seamlessly through an app for improved sound quality.”

The complete system across the three-party zone areas, consist of different types of speakers to ensure surround sound and that all audio is captured for maximum clarity. For the largest zone, the Prime Stage, 12 new units of SRX928S subwoofers were added to the existing front arrays, each made up of 5 units of JBL SRX725 speakers per side. At the DJ console and the VIP area, two PRX918S speakers and two PRX918XLF subwoofers were installed respectively for low-frequency energy. Bluetooth control of these is possible via the JBL Pro Connect app.

For the G-Floor zone which is a smaller area, the BRX300 series of line array speakers and subwoofers were used due to its compact and portable system that provides superior fidelity, high output and consistent coverage in a range of sound reinforcement scenarios.

“We are very impressed with JBL’s sound system that not only provides better coverage of the entire space, but also enables the sound engineering team to customize the sound as desired. This ultimately allows partygoers to fully enjoy the DJ’s music more than the original sound system,” said Pee Pattanasiri, Founder of the Half Moon Festival.

“Any outdoor music festival such as Ko Pha Ngan’s Half Moon Festival, requires a top of the range AV system for an immersive audio experience that will keep the energy of partygoers high,” said G Amar Subash, VP & GM, HARMAN Professional Solutions, APAC. “We would like to thank our partner Mahajak Development Co. Ltd. for utilising JBL’s range of products in creating unique and immersive entertainment experiences for consumers”.
