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.
Launched in 2008 with just 1,500 tickets sold, Clockenflap quickly evolved and expanded to take its place in the music world. In 2018 more than 60,000 people attended the three-day event, and this year’s show will no doubt be bigger and more awesome than ever.
With names like the Flaming Lips, the Chemical Brothers, George Clinton and Parliament-Funkadelic, Erykah Badhu and David Byrne, it’s no wonder that many people plan their trip to Hong Kong to coincide with this fantastic line-up of local and international talent.
Every year Clockenflap continues to pull in new world-class performers, well-known bands, and rising 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.
Since the line-up for 2019 has not yet been announced, be sure to check the official Clockenflap website to see what this year’s show will bring.
