    KaZantip Republic in Cambodia

    Dont know if anyone else has been following this ??

    http://kazantip.com/kazantip-2015.html

    The crazy fun looking Russian multi day party / festival / gangster and model hangout seems to be set for Sihanoukville in a few days..

    It was on, then the Governor of the province freaked out once someone explained what it would be.. But it all seems to be going full steam ahead..



    Look like they are making a really crazy set of installations and stuff..

    So, kinda sorta like Burning Man without the art or other redeeming qualities.

    Hah, yeah. Although a surprising number of Europeans are making it to Burning Man these days. We have a nice couple from Germany joining our camp again this year. Canadians too, of course.

    The videos looked like the crowd that shows up to just two of the big sound camps on the 10:30 end of the city each night. Burning Man is huge these days, 60,000 plus.

    Never made it to a BM.. I would guess that BM i a bit more diverse, Kazantip being more simply music / dj / party vibe where BM appears more art installation, madness, desert trip vibe..

    That's pretty much it, plus there's the dust. The dust and the vastness of the open dry lake bed where the event is held are part of the psychology of BM. The art installations continue to amaze me every year.

    The annual kaZantip festival is relocating to Sihanoukville this year due to security concerns in its long-time location, Ukraine.
    Frying pan.. Fire..

    I have to say, from my perspective its a real shame.. This could have been huge and while it is a bit of a wild party.. Could have been great for cambodia economically and pro tourism on a youth angle.

    Kazantip seems like a more grown up and adult version of the FMPs which have now been over run.

    "sexy activities" eh....we'll have none of that in Cambodia 555

    I'm guessing a nice fat brown envelope was the real end of that deal...

    Sad to see the festival being cancelled like that.
    In a place like Cambodia, there's no telling what kind of back room politics were at work.

    Meanwhile, this year's Burning Man tickets sold out in just over an hour.
