What’s On In Phnom Penh THIS Weekend

Your complete guide to the weekend ahead.


What’s On the Menu

It’s the first Friday of the month – and that means it’s TGIF at Kingdom Brewery! In addition to all-you-can-drink Indochine beer, you can also tuck into a tasty Katy Peri’s pizza for the grand total of $13 (or $8 without the pizza).  

What’s On Show

A fascinating exhibition comes to META House tonight. The Peace Mask Exhibition combines the work of Women Peace Makers in Cambodia and the Peace Mask Project of Japan, exploring cultural differences and building empathy to help overcome conflict.  

What’s On Screen

Little Miss Sunshine, the hilarious, poignant, Oscar-winning depiction of a dysfunctional family driving cross-country so that their youngest can compete in a child beauty pageant, shows tonight at Flicks 1 (8.30pm).

What’s On Stage

There’s so much top music on tonight it’s hard to know where to start…

There’s the weekend-long St 308 Bloc Party, hosted in memory of Cambodian Space Project frontwoman Kak Channthy, where tonight you can catch Scott Bywater, El Moreno, Kampot Playboys, Pao Play and DJ Watts Up. Or you can nip around the corner to Bassac Lane, where Mike Dynamo’s hugely charismatic covers band The 99 Boyz serenade the cocktail-fuelled street party.



Over at fancy-schmancy new venue Black Box, Rhiannon Johnson, Euan Gray, Larry Martinez, Andrey M and Antti Siitonen play an energetic benefit concert, raising money to secure housing for 100 Cambodian trainee teachers. There will be food and plenty of excellent booze options, plus raffle prizes to be won.

Elsewhere, Hard Rock Cafe hosts a Woodstock Tribute Night, while Mirasol Aguila and Stan Paleco play Botanico.


What’s On Late


There’s a Berlin-rave-inspired night at META House, and late-night poker at everyone’s favourite dive bar, The Wall (from 11:30pm, St 172).


What’s On The Menu

Ooooh! The Slaprea Food Festival 2018 is on this weekend, with over 100 stalls selling delicious food for just $1-$4 apiece. 


What’s On Show

Another fascinating (if somewhat controversial) exhibition at META House tonight, marking the 200th anniversary of the birth of Karl Marx. Called Marx Still Matters: The Poor, the Rich and the Bicentenary of the Father of Communism, this event includes artwork, short films and more, exploring the legacy of a philosopher whose ideas dominated 20th Century politics and thought. 


What’s On Screen

Alongside the exhibition, META House also screens feature film The Young Karl Marx at 8pm.

Meanwhile, the Bophana Centre screens the documentary Congo River, Beyond Darkness, tracing the story of one of the largest river basin in the world.

Live Music

Choose from the second night of the St 308 Bloc Partya live blues concert at Meta HouseHills & Bells (Scoddy Bywater and Marianna Hensley) at Botanico, and 4 Corners Band @ Alchemy (St 123).



What’s On Late

Check out French DJ Eazy at Pontoon on the Cambodia leg of his international tour.




What’s On Screen

Feeling a bit tender after the previous two nights? Settled down with the soothing, beautiful Russian film Happiness at the Bophana Centre, the last silent film to be made in the country.

Or check out Aviici: True Stories (4pm @ Flicks 1, St 95), which was released last year and, with alarming prescience, charts the decline in health of the legendary music producer, DJ and musician Tim Bergling, who died a few weeks ago, aged just 28.

What’s On The Menu

The Slaprea Food Festival 2018 continues today, with a plethora of treats for a lazy, gluttonous Sunday afternoon.


What Else?

And now for something completely different: at this Aerial Yoga class, you can get bendy while suspended from hammocks on the ceiling. Interesting stuff!
