The most anticipated music and arts event in Hong Kong’s annual event line-up is back! Clockenflap had grown in ten short years to become one of the largest music festivals in Asia.
With names like the Flaming Lips, The Chemical Brothers, Erykah Badhu and David Byrne performing in previous years, it’s no wonder that many people have planned their trip to Hong Kong to coincide with this fantastic collection of local and international talent.
Line-Up: December 2023
During the March event, there was a whole host of amazing artists: Arctic Monkeys, Pheonix, FKJ, and the Ezra Collective to name a few.
Meanwhile, the December event is not without big names. With Australian-Japanese singer Joji headlining and major talents like Yoasobi, Caroline Polachek, and IDLES taking the stage, Clockenflap’s second event of the year promises to be just as exciting as the first. See the rest of the lineup on the official page.
What to expext
Every year Clockenflap also pulls in a number of local and regional stars, making it a great opportunity to hear from groups based in Hong Kong and other parts of Asia.
But it’s more than just the music — it’s also about art, film, and performance, and is even family-friendly, since two kids under the age of 12 can get in free. There are also food and drink vendors, games to try, and exhibitions to explore.
If you’re really serious about hearing a lot of bands, then buy the 3-Day Pass (from HK$1,990.00) and see the full line-up of performers. You can alternatively buy the one-day tickets (from HK$1,280.00) for the Friday, Saturday, or Sunday shows, depending on which bands or performers you want to see.
Children aged three and under can attend the festival for free (pre-registration for children aged under three is not required). Children aged between three and 17 years old require their own ticket.
Cheapo tip: The Friday show doesn’t start until 5 p.m. that means you only get 5.5 hours of music. A better bet, time permitting, are the Saturday and Sunday shows, which run from 12 noon until 10:30 p.m., giving you much more bang for your buck.
