Rotten Head Music & Craft Beer Festival

HK$300.00 (advance sales)
Important: Due to the recent unrest in Hong Kong this event has been officially cancelled for 2019.

This October brings a brand new event to Hong Kong’s music and foodie scene, the first ever Rotten Head Music & Craft Beer Festival, taking place on Lantau Island.

Fed up with a lack of entertainment in Tung Chung, two of its residents have taken it upon themselves to organise this event, with the aim of making it fun for everybody, including families.

With an awesome line-up of bands, lots of local craft beer, and food vendors, the festival organisers promise this will be the biggest thing to happen on Lantau Island “since the Mongol invasion of 1276” (which, we’re guessing, actually did happen).

They are bringing in more than 10 local brews from both Lantau and around Hong Kong, including Yardley Brothers, Moonzen and Hong Kong Whistle.

Some of the well-known local bands performing that night include The Taken, Jack Rabbit Slim, The Pistons, Rockstars Anonymous, and junior guitar duo Case Sensitive, to name just a few.

This event is family-friendly, as there will be a kids area with fun things like dinosaur painting, and a Baby Disco, where parents are welcome to make a fool of themselves while dancing to Baby Shark.

Handmade Hong Kong, which is a long-time craft market organiser, has partnered with Rotten Head to bring in lots of local creators and vendors.

Rotten Head also has an eco focus, as they are working with local environmental group Plastic Free Seas to make sure this is the first low impact festival in Hong Kong, with zero single-use plastic.

According to the organisers, Alan and Andrew, the name ‘Rotten Head’ is born from the highest peak on Lantau Island—Lantau Peak—which in Cantonese translates to ‘broken’ or ‘rotten’ head, due to the look of its summit. And as this festival is a celebration of Lantau and beyond, it seemed fitting to call it Rotten Head Festival.

The venue is easy to find, taking place in Tat Tung Road Garden, directly next to the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car Station.
