Hong Kong’s largest music festival Clockenflap announce dates

Clockenflap

 

One of Hong Kong’s biggest music festivals called Clockenflap has announced this year’s dates: November 27-29. Though they have never had a history of bringing in “heavy” acts to the festival, we have been told by countless who have attended that it is still a good time for friends and family. I have never been because in the 7 years so far there has never been a lineup that has enticed me. But maybe this year I will attend with my family because the setting of this festival is absolutely beautiful – right at the harbor of Hong Kong overlooking the majestic Hong Kong skyline. Rumor has it that this will be the last time that Clockenflap will be able to hold the event in this space. Bummer…

Here’s their own write up about this year’s events:

“It’s official, the countdown to the biggest ever Clockenflap starts now! So mark your diaries with indelible, festive ink for 27 – 29 Nov @ West Kowloon, and ready yourselves for the very best Clockenflap yet.
Stay tuned for more news here very soon…”

Hopefully this year’s events includes some bands/artists that would be exciting for the city’s heavy music fans. More information soon: https://www.facebook.com/clockenflap

    I’ve been for the last 3 or 4 years, and even though it’s geared up for a more softer side of music, it is still good to go to. Last year was the poorest for bands, except for Dan Deacon and a few others, but we all still had a pretty good time. As it’s pretty much our only real international biggish band festival in HK, it’s good to support. Good setup and the kids love it. Must be a nightmare to get it organised but they always manage to pull it off pretty good. You should check it out.
