Looks like this weekend is lining up to be a truly frightening one, with Halloween promising some terrifying Techno, Horrific House, frightening Funk (ok, thats enough puns) and even some Blood and Grime!
There are 14 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 (as one does) 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.
Ghoulish goings on at Zombination at Code(Blood)Red…DJ Bree and RackyZ will be spinning Zombie Ragga, Haunted Decks, Horror Loops and Blood Maddened Beats….terrifying!

Woo! What a weekend – so many awesome events! 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, 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 The Airfix Twin, O-Live ADN 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!
