This year’s Kazantip will be in Cambodia!
Infamous, notorious Eastern European dance festival Kazantip − a “virtual republic” of partying on the Black Sea − had run into some trouble over the past few years. Last year, fighting in Crimea between the Russian army and separatists led to the festival being moved south-west to the Georgian coastline.
Unfortunately, the festival’s freewheeling vibe proved unpopular with the local conservative powers, so Kazantip’s “president” Nikita and his merry band have now packed up and moved their 2015 party to Koh Puos Island, in Sihanoukville, Cambodia.
The 1km-squared island is owned by a Russian company and comes with seaside villas, a town centre with shops and restaurants, white sand and palm trees and, from February 18th to 28th this year, hundreds of DJs and thousands of party animals − mostly from Eastern Europe will be invading the island.
Kazantip’s website reads: “It’s a unique opportunity for successful people to participate on the colonisation of the uninhabited Kazantip island to celebrate the Kazantip lifestyle, cross limits, dance all day/night and explore the pure beauty of the Kazantip island and its citizens.”

No artists have been announced for this year’s edition just yet but last year’s line-up included Ricardo Villalobos, Helena Hauff, The Martinez Brothers and Dixon.
