JBL keeps the beat going for the Half Moon Festival


Taking place on Thailand’s fifth largest island, Ko Pha Ngan, the Half Moon Festival recently updated the audio for its three party zone areas with a JBL Professional solution. The bi-weekly outdoor dance music festival held during the half-moon, one week before and one week after the full moon, attracts partygoers from across the globe and can accommodate up to 3,000 people.

The client sought out Mahajak Development to upgrade the festival’s previous audio system, which was more than a decade old, with Mahajak Development noting that the old system had low-frequency blind spots which sound engineers could not control.

The festival features three party zones, including the Prime Stage, G-Floor and The Cave. To ensure surround sound, the complete system across these zones consists of different types of speakers. For the largest zone, the Prime Stage, 12 SRX928S subwoofers were added to the existing front arrays, each made up of five JBL SRX725 speakers per side. At the DJ console and the VIP area, two PRX918S speakers and two PRX918XLF subwoofers were installed for low-frequency energy. These can be controlled with Bluetooth via the JBL Pro Connect app. Additionally, the smaller G-Floor zone area features the BRX300 series of line array speakers and subwoofers, chosen for its compact and portable design.

“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 customise the sound as desired,” commented Pee Pattanasiri, founder of the Half Moon Festival. “This ultimately allows partygoers to fully enjoy the DJ’s music more than the original sound system.”

G Amar Subash, VP and GM, Harman Professional Solutions, APAC, remarked: “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. We would like to thank our partner Mahajak Development for utilising JBL’s range of products in creating unique and immersive entertainment experiences for consumers.”
