After announcing their migration to Cambodia last month, the Russian festival has officially been cancelled by the local police. 


KaZantip, the popular European festival is going through a really rough patch at the moment. After relocating twice over the past year, the new Cambodian home of the festival has also shut it’s doors for the gathering. According to the Cambodia Daily, The 10 – day electronic music festival was scheduled to kick off in the Koh Puos island, but military police have been deployed to block the bridge linking the island to the mainland to prevent the rave from going ahead.


Infamous for the civil unrest that the festival faced in it’s Crimean home, the festival moved to Georgia first, and then finally locked down on Cambodia earlier this year. The Cambodian authorities want nothing to do with the rave culture that the festival promotes, and have titled the gathering as a form of ‘indecent tourism’. Well, if you want to know what it’s all about, just Google KaZantip and judge it for yourselves.
