Hong Kong To Celebrate a Weekend of Independent Live Music ‘We Need This Weekend’

Hong Kong is about to celebrate a phenomenal two-day event called We Need This Weekend celebrating independent bands/music across two venues that have been giving it their all to this city – Rula Live and The Aftermath. Festival organizers, Sunset Studio and PigRat, state, “We put this together as a response to an annual Hong Kong festival called Clockenflap not happening yet another year this year. Clockenflap traditionally takes place this weekend. So many music fans were saving this date in hopes for a return to Clockenflap and we didn’t want to disappoint. As this is a free festival, we thought it would be easy for peeps to put a few coins toward the fine folk who will be filling your earholes with music all weekend. That being said, donation boxes will be at the bars. Feel free to toss the cash you would spend on one drink into said boxes and make a musician smile! Heck, if you’re feeling super generous, put a whole round in there!”
