________________________________________________________________Silent Noise headphone parties, Goa, India
Posted by TravellingTabitha
Silent Noise parties are held at Neptune's Point in South Goa – a stunning peninsula where hundreds of happy clubbers can look out across the water to Palolem beach as they dance the night away.
Everyone is connected to the music with wireless headphones so the party doesn’t disturb the neighbours (or the local police) and three DJs play simultaneously, competing to get the crowd to tune into their set.
Add in lasers, visuals, circus performers and tepees, and you’ve got a mini festival every week – helping to revive the outdoor rave vibe that originally put Goa on the beach party map.

________________________________________________________________Hogmany on Portobello beach
Posted by upnorthkid
It's not in the summer. It's not in Thailand or the Balearics. And it's not a formal party. But if you want one of the best Hogmanay experiences in the world, get yourself to Portobello beach and join in with one of the many beach fires that spring up along the front. Someone will be passing the single malt. Someone else will be shooting fireworks out to sea. Everyone's chatty and friendly. Best Hogmanay you can have.
Portobello Beach in Edinburgh. Get the no. 26 bus from Princes Street. Fires all along the front. Head East for some of the more convivial groups. The Esplanade pub is a good place to top up or get warm!
________________________________________________________________Lake of Stars Festival
Posted by LateTrainSpotter
A music festival in a beautiful setting by the shores of Lake Malawi. It's probably the only place in Africa you'll be able to hear dubstep and kwasa kwasa at the same time...
There's not a drop of mud in sight and it's all for charity so you feel good doing it. The rumour that Madonna will be there this year is probably not true though.www.lakeofstars.org
________________________________________________________________Morro de São Paulo, Brazil

This little town on a beautiful island off the coast of Salvador is a must. No cars. The taxis for luggage only are wheelbarrows.
Connected to Salvador by catamaran service or by small prop plane (max 12Kg weight limit). The beaches are fabulous. The second beach is full of bars, surfers and chilled beach goers who like to party late into the night. I'd recommend taking a pousada on the third beach. The bars along here serve excellent caipirinha at about R$2!
In the centre of town you can find food to suit all tastes and budgets along the sandy main street. Be fluid with onward travel plans - you may just add a few days to your stay here on this lovely island getaway!

________________________________________________________________Raleigh Hotel, Miami, USA
Posted by missg
Head over to the Raleigh Hotel on a Sunday evening for its amazing pool party. Get there around 5pm, before the velvet rope and rottweilers are put in place. You can sip cold Coronas and chill to fantastic tunes long into the night and early hours and the clientele is a cross of latino lovelies and Miami party people.

________________________________________________________________Full moon drum and beach party, Miami
Posted by pedrocrystal
If you happen to be in Miami at the right time, barefoot drummers congregate on the beach each month to celebrate the full moon. No fliers, bouncers, queues or entry fee, this word of mouth event is a must.

Capannina Beach, located in the Venice party capital of Jesolo Lido, became the setting of the legendary sunset-aperitivo parties known as "The Better Days". With the magic combination of its house set (influenced by everything from acid to electronica to deep from minimal to techhouse), open air location and spectacular Venetian sunsets, The Better Days has grown to become the most important, unforgettable beach party in all of Venice. Guests of the party often make comparisons to the bliss and ambience found at the famous Circo Loco parties held in Ibiza, or to those of Cavo Paradiso in Mykonos. Unforgettable.
