KaZantip faces second re-location, moves to private island in Cambodia
KaZantip, the popularly known Eastern European electronic music festival that was based on the Crimean peninsula from 1992 until 2013 will face its second move in 2015. Last year, the festival moved for first time in its history to Anaklia, Georgia due to political disputes between Russia and the Ukraine. Unable to catch a break for its second consecutive year, KaZantip will re-locate to Koh Puos Island in Sihanoukville, Cambodia.
From February 18-28, the 1km-square island brimming with seaside villas, shops, restaurants and glistening beaches will welcome an abundance of DJs and fans. In transforming the Russian-owned territory into a festival hub, it seems as though KaZantip’s second run on foreign soil might be a refreshing change of scenery.
