Last weekend was another stormer, clubwise – the last HighRise till November (pictures and videos here) ruled the roost once again with a proper warehouse vibe – albeit on a rooftop above Phnom Penh.
This week, everyone is talking about the W.I.L.D party on Saturday (read our exclusive interview with the party organisers here), but Phnom Penh clubbers are spoiled for choice this weekend with an amazing selection of nights which shows the strength in depth that the scene has at the moment.
Ok, 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, please note that this will be our last club guide for a few weeks as we’re off to swim with the turtles in Indonesia!

|Which leads us onto the hotly anticipated W.I.L.D party. In a secret location TBA, this promises to be an amazing party with the cream of Phnom Penh’s DJ talent(and on a personal note, it will be my – DJ Sequence’s– last gig in PP till November). Too much info to list here, so go to https://www.facebook.com/events/549220381860354 for more details!|
|Finally, if you’re in more of a hiphop mood on Saturday, make sure you check out DJ Jedie at Pontoon, who’ll be supplying the best in block-rockin’, body sockin’, party poppin’ beats! https://www.facebook.com/events/872134222812049/|
Well, if you have any energy after that lot, looking towards next weekend and beyond, the calendar’s full of amazing events. As always, please let me know about underground events in PP, Siem Reap, Sihanoukville, Kampot and beyond via our Facebook page or the website.
Our pick for next week is:
|On the 10th, the mighty duo of DJ DSK and Gobshite will be laying down some serious live hiphop in the beautiful surroundings of NagaHouse in Kampot. I can’t think of a better way to spend a lazy saturday, so if you are down in beautiful Kampot, check it out! https://www.facebook.com/events/1399235523689959/|
As I said at the top, loads of great events happening this weekend – for more details, check our events calendar and remember – keep it underground
PS – Phnom Penh Underground said goodbye to our spiritual home, The Rooftop at Dusk til Dawn, until November on Saturday and we had an epic night – dance battles, pure good vibes and some quality underground beats.
Thank you to everyone – the DJs, the dancers and the venue staff- who have supported our HighRise night over the last 6 months and we’ll see you in the Autumn, bigger, better and bassier! Here’s a little peek of what the night was like!
