There are still a few tickets remaining for the Kampot River Music Festival. It will be on for 3 days over the full-moon on the banks of the Kampot River in just over 1 week from now. Details on how you can secure tickets for this very unique, totally fun and groovin' event can be seen here: http://www.lengpleng.com/p/kampot-river-music-festival-for-june.html . If you are intending to take the bus down to the festival then please make sure to inform us on which day - you will need to do this before lunchtime on Friday the 17th of June.

A very special week this week in music also because next Tuesday is the 21st of June, and that means it is the northern hemisphere summer solstice, and with it comes the global music celebration which is the Fête de la Musique. This unique festival happens every year on this day and is huge celebration of human creativity and spirituality that comes from through the materialization of music. The festival manifests itself as a series of musical events - both big and small - on the street, in local bars, and in concert halls and is performed in a plethora of musical genre. The Fête de la Musique began more than 30 years ago in France and has since spread across the world. Cambodia is celebrating again this year with 4 special events.

The first event will not occur on Tuesday (!!?? yeah tell me about it!), but on Saturday at the Chenla Theatre. It will feature international jazz-rap duo of 12Mé &  Raph and will be preceded by a series of short performances by a variety of local performers - one of whom will be the Hot Strings Jazz Club - in an open-mic arrangement. Cool! The remaining 3 events all occur on the solstice (Tuesday). The biggest in Phnom Penh will probably be the event at the Memphis Pub where there are over 11 acts on the bill - including top performers such as Cartoon Emo, Sliten6ix and the irrepressible Rock Xpress.  The other special event in Phnom Penh will happen in the garden of CCF starting at 7:00PM. This annual event at this venue always attracts a lot of people and usually has a few surprises. There will be plenty of food and drinks and will also be an open-mic - so all musicians can get down there and get involved. Finally, the CCF is organizing an event for the festival in Siem Reap. This also has more than 11 acts on the bill, including Master Kong Nay, The Cambodian Space Project and the Svay Sor Band. Smokin'!

Before that all happens though, we still have this weekend of musical performances which are just as truly smokin' as those which follow. The MetaHouse continue to treat us with truly international mastery of the Benny Lackner Trio on Thursday - should not be missed. On Friday, Equinox will preview 12Mé & Raph and follow-up with another unique show from the Cambodian Space Project on Saturday. This latter performance will be preceded by an acoustic set that will showcase some of the bands new material. 

Friday will also see the introduction of another music venue to the scene with The Score putting on the classic Lost Highway. Captain Jack will perform this same night on the riverfront at Paddy Rice.

Saturday sees another highly anticipated performance by Dub Addiction. They will debut at Mao's. This venue is supporting the live music industry in Cambodia in a big way and I urge you get get down there and support the place. Please feel free to tell the management what you would like to see in terms of live music and DJ gigs and what you believe they can do to really get the place happening.

If you are in Siem Reap for the weekend then don't miss Bum N Draze at the X-Bar on Saturday night.

I will leave you this weekend with a brand new release from Dub Addiction - CLICK HERE. Totally cool mix of ragga-dub put together by Prof Kinski. Enjoy it!

So, until next week, have a great weekend, be cool with each other and see you around the traps. Here's this weeks gig-guide.
