Lan Kwai Fong Beer & Music Fest

1:00pm
Free

Events and festivals in July are scant in Hong Kong, and for good reason. Hong Kong’s hot, humid summers are notorious, forcing both locals and tourists alike to try to stay indoors in the life-saving air conditioning. (Need proof? Just pop in to the IKEA in Causeway Bay and see lots of folks ‘trying out’ comfy chairs, and even beds, for hours at a time).

But there’s one outdoor event which you should definitely attend to have some fun and beat the heat: the annual Lan Kwai Fong Beer & Music Fest.

Central’s favourite nightlife district, Lan Kwai Fong, hosts this two-day event over a weekend in July (dates to be announced), and draws huge crowds.

Dozens of booths set up all along the winding streets, serving international brews, local craft beers, and tasty food from all over the world. This is a great opportunity for visitors to sample Hong Kong’s delicious craft beers that you won’t find in the supermarkets, such as Lion Rock Beer, Meow Beer, and Hitachino Nest.

Entry to this awesome event is free, and you just pay for whichever beers and food you want to sample. There will also be a game zone (cue the beer pong!), and an amphitheatre with 20 live bands performing a wide variety of music, including rock, jazz and electro, to entertain the crowds.

Though the beer fest officially starts at 1 pm, it doesn’t really get going until much later in the evening, when the weather cools down a little and people dare to venture outdoors.

If you’re still somehow standing later in the night, head into one of Lan Kwai Fong’s many legendary nightclubs to dance it off, such as Volar, Levels, or Hard Rock Cafe.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
