No matter where the next Kazantip Republic finds itself, kistening to the crashing waves of the ocean and the rockin’ sounds of live music—there’s truly no better way to hear your favorite artists and spend the best nights of your life.
The festival was created as a way to bring together people from around the world to one giant beach party. Kazantip is all about fashion, friends, and fun and that’s just what you will see when you arrive.
How Kazantip Began
Kazantip itself got its start originally as a wind surfing festival, coinciding with an underground rave that took in an abandoned nuclear reactor. The party has made its way to Anaklia, Georgia and Koh Puos, Cambodia over the years but has caused quite a stir in its old homes. Due to the “sexy nature” and “indecent tourism” of the Kazantip Republic, the Cambodian government forced these partiers back to their original home.
Today, you will see partiers and families from all over the world heading to Kazantip each summer. While many of the attendees and residents of the Kazantip Republic are local, wait a lot more people are hopping on this party bus each year. This event has become a staple in the party scene since it’s induction, Kazantip has rapidly climbed to being one of the world’s best-loved destinations.
How Much is Kazantip?
Due to the nature of Kazantip being a two week beach party all rolled into one giant island festival, you can’t really just buy one festival pass or anything like that. Take a look on the Internet for different packages that are offered. Many companies do the hard work for you and put together the best hotels and clubs for you. Prices start at around $300 and go up from there.
You may want to consider a travel agent if you want to see ALL of Kazantip Republic and the surrounding cities, not just the club scene. Having someone that knows the area very well will help you get the most for your money.Whichever option you choose, try to purchase tickets as soon as you know you want to go to Kazantip! Tickets sell out incredibly quickly, so it’s best to think about attending at the end of the previous year.
Festival Fashion: What to Wear to the Kazantip Republic
When it comes to dressing for a music festival, comfortable is always the way to go! When dressing for Kazantip, however, carefully consider the beachy location and pack your typical ocean attire. Members of this Republic take the beach wear seriously, so don’t skimp on the fashion! Bring on the bikinis and bathing suits! You’re going to be sitting on the sand and splashing in the waves for days at a time, so make sure you’re ready to bare some skin.
When it comes to the sun, pack head gear that will keep you as shady as possible. Bring a few pairs of sunglasses, sun hats, baseball caps, visors, and headbands to keep the sweat off your face and sun out of your eyes. In addition to dressing for the heat, keep in mind to drink for it as well! (Stay hydrated!)
Your daily footwear at Kazantip will almost always be flip flops or simple sandals. You’re feet are going to be wet, sandy, or hot so it’s best to take the easiest shoe that you can just slip on or slip off within seconds. Crocs work well if you want to dress your beachy feet up a bit.
Bring some extra layers as well in case you need to head to the store or you just feel like changing. If you’re staying at Kazantip from dusk ‘til dawn, I would recommend that you bring a change of clothes for bars and clubs you may be heading to in the evening.
Preparing for Kazantip
The vibes and experiences of the Kazantip Republic are really unique compare to other festivals, because of its location on the actual shores of the beach. This amazing atmosphere makes preparing for this festival a little different than getting ready for others. On one hand, you will have to pack everything you need for a music festival and then you have to pack what you need for an extended stay at the beach!
Typical music festival preparation includes planning out your entire schedule before you get to the actual festival. Visit the Kazantip website and download the app so you are prepared to locate when and where all your favorite bands are playing. Look at the map and plot out paths for you to go through the day to see everything so you don’t waste unnecessary time trying to sift through all the artists the day of the event.
In addition to bringing a schedule you will want to bring towels, bug repellant, sunblock, breath mints, band aids and other first aid equipment. Additionally you will want to bring over the counter medicine in case of a headache or emergency, vitamins, non perishable snacks, deodorant and anything else you can think of.
Safety at the Festival
Festival safely is very important and taking a few steps to think about it now will help you when you arrive at the Kazantip Repubic. Take a second to write out all your important phone numbers so you can have an on hand copy in the event that your phone gets damaged, lost, or stolen. Have a secondary way to contact friends—pick a meeting place and times each day for everyone to meet up and check on each other. Many former attendees suggest getting Walkie Talkies instead of phones and having large flags or totems so friends recognize each other in a crowd.
Throughout the festival, everyone in your group should have a Kazantip buddy so at least one person knows where the other is at all times. If you are not comfortable around large bodies of water, stay on the shore or bring floatation devices with you. Perhaps brush up on your swimming lessons before arriving.
While discussing safety at the Kazantip Republic, it makes sense for you to be conscious of how much cash you carry on your person. If you can avoid carrying a lot of cash with you during the festival, it will prevent it from getting lost or stolen. However, you should know that most items within the festival only accept cash and the beach has very few ATMS. If you would rather not wait in line, have a lot of cash stashed away somewhere—perhaps a safe place in your car.
Island Partying Means Drink More Water!
Before you get to Kazantip, you need to make a plan to stay hydrated! Spending hours a day in direct sunlight is incredibly taxing on your body and your health so you need to make sure you are consuming as much water as the sun is draining from you.
Keep several packs of water bottles, Gatorade, and/or Powerade in your car, and suitcase so that you can restock your backpack when you get low. Keep an empty drinking container on you at all times just so you have the opportunity to refill it if you are not near your belongings. Having Pedialyte on hand is also helpful to mix in with water to keep you from dehydrating.
Where to Stay During Kazantip
When it comes to lodging locations during Kazantip, you may want to check the festival site to see what packages they offer with hotel partners. Based on who you book with, you will definitely get cheaper deals than waiting until you arrive.
If you are still looking for a place to stay during the two week party-cation, check Air BnB to see if you can find cheaper accommodations in the area. Many people have vacation homes around the beaches that might have empty rooms for festival goers. Several of the available places to lodge are accessible by bike from the beaches or offer special shuttles to and from the festival.
