Lamma Fun Day Beach Music Festival

The Lamma Fun Day Beach Music Festival is much, much more than just an awesome all-day beach party and sports event — it’s a party with a cause.

The annual Lamma Fun Day has been held since 2000, with the goal of raising funds for Child Welfare Scheme Hong Kong (CWS), an organisation which supports and empowers disadvantaged and vulnerable children, young people and women in Nepal.

This free, fun and family-friendly festival comprises two races, two stages of bands, an impressive lineup of performers and DJs, plus fundraising stalls, hot food and cold drinks, and live charity auctions, all raising money for CWS.

The day kicks off with two well known charity races: the Lamma14, and the Lamma8 race, both of which attract runners of all levels and ages who will run a route around parts of beautiful Lamma island.

The fundraising stalls have lots of cold drinks and great food, with all proceeds going to the CWS.

The 2019 band lineup brings some awesome local talent to the stage, with Anello, Transnoodle, DJ Star, Shotgun Politics, Dark Himaya, Mid-Life Crisis Cowboys, Pink Phloyd, Shotgun Politics and Andy is Typing performing that day.

This much-loved music and community event has supported numerous CWS initiatives since 2000. The last five Lamma Fun Days have helped rebuild schools damaged by the earthquake and raised funds for the Child Friendly Schools initiative in Nepal.

Lamma Fun Day takes place at Tai Wan To Beach, also known as “Power Station Beach” due to its location next to Hong Kong Electric’s Lamma Power Station.

To get there, take the HKKF Ferry from Pier 4 in Central to Yung Shue Wan, which is the ferry terminal on the north part of Lamma. From Yung Shue Wan, it is about a 15 minute walk to the beach.
