Godamm! That was some weekend we’ve just had! 13 amazing events over the weekend – loads of quality nights all over the country but the pick of the bunch has to be the outrageous Kimchi Collective night at Code:Red, which has to rank as one of the biggest and best nights that we’ve seen, well, ever!
Big respects to the Kimchi crew and also to Eddie and all at Code:Red. Please, keep on supporting quality venues like Code:Red – they totally deserve it!
The madness continues this weekend with 10 amazing events for yr clubbing pleasure this weekend (as well as 6 fantastic regular nights).
On a personal note, the Phnom Penh Underground crew are returning to the Charming City after summering in London. Look out for the return of our infamous HighRise night as well as a big, big Phnom Penh Underground 1st Birthday Party at a major venue…more details coming soon!
So lets have a look at this weekend – too many nights to mention here, so we’re going to concentrate on the one-off nights – for the full line-up with all the fantastic regular nights, check our events calendar.

PS, we have to big up our Soundcloud Page – we’ve got 46 mixes from the cream of Cambodia’s DJ talent with more being added every week (Look out for mixes from Lefty Stryker ,DJ Sequence and a guest mix from Edouard Von Shaeke coming in the very near future!). We just reached 5000 plays – it started off really slowly, but we’re now averaging almost 1000 plays a month – not bad for little old Phnom Penh!
Please keep on supporting the page and also make sure that you support everyone who’s promoting amazing nights in Cambodia. We’ve got a fantastic, growing scene at the moment but without your continued support, its nothing…so keep the faith!
