The most anticipated music and arts event in Hong Kong’s annual line-up, Clockenflap has grown in ten short years to become one of the largest music festivals in Asia.
And every year the lineup of performers just keeps getting better and better. 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 plan their trip to Hong Kong to coincide with this fantastic collection of local and international talent.
The 2019 first-round lineup has finally been announced, with Mumford & Sons, Halsey and Lil Pump just some of the big names set to kick off the three-day festival. The Kooks are also taking the stage, along with Mura Masa, Boy Pablo, Ben&Ben, and Cosmo’s Midnight.
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 and see the full line-up of performers. You can alternatively buy the one-day tickets for the Friday, Saturday, or Sunday shows, depending on which bands or performers you want to see.
The Friday night tickets are slightly cheaper, but because the show doesn’t start until 5 pm that means you only get six hours of music. A better bet, time permitting, are the Saturday and Sunday shows, which run from 12 noon until 11 pm, giving you much more bang for your buck.
Be sure to check the official Clockenflap website (below) to see what this year’s show will bring, get your tickets early.
