From Nation:

Next weekend, Phuket launches the debut edition of "Roy Fest", a brand new music event that features more than 50 DJs and musicians from around the globe. The Tourism Authority of Thailand has invested more than Bt22 million to convert Karon Beach into the ultimate beach dance party and they're expecting to draw thousands of partygoers to have fun on the white sand.

This is a good idea for Phuket, although I'm surprised they got the green light from the local authorities to put this on. I know people have tried to organize similar events in the past.

Phuket's nightlife scene is rather tame compared to what it could be. A couple of years ago I was singing the praises of Club Lime, but not any more. The places to be in Phuket appear to be the likes of Sound, Stereo Lab and Catch. Phuket isn't a very big island so you see the same faces at the same places every week, so it can seem a little cliquey, especially with the phoniness of many of the island's friendships.

Koh Samui's nightlife is better, but Phuket is doing all right. I recommend people go and check Roy Fest out, if only because you never know with these things if they'll happen again. There is a website, but it doesn't work, so call (02) 503 3878.

Addendum: It was a free event. My apologies for thinking it was a ticket party.
