Clockenflap Music Festival HK Forgets Itself for the Weekend

[03/11/11] 

Clockenflap, Hong Kong’s only genuine music festival, returns in December with a two-day programme spanning five stages and over 20,000 people expected to attend. Unsurprisingly they haven’t managed to squeeze it onto the Island  (it’s taking place in the West Kowloon Cultural District) so most of you will enjoy a very raucous eight minute journey on the Star Ferry as well as a humdinger of an event.

Bombay Bicycle Club are headlining the festival, followed by The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Benjamin Francis Leftwich and a host of local acts with names that are just as ambiguous. Dubbed ‘Hong Kong’s answer to Fuji Rock, Summer Sonic & Reading’, you won’t get the mud or the wellies you see at British festivals but it is going to be free and that’s nearly as impressive as a slim Korean women beating America's fattest men in a speed eating contest.

Clockenflap is a multimedia event so aside from the five stages you’ll also find a film and animation tent as well as a flea market and ‘much more’. That said, when organizers say ‘much more’ you can be pretty sure there isn’t much more otherwise they’d have mentioned it. The festival takes place from December 11-12 so make sure you save the date as it's a unique spectacle in Hong Kong.

You'll be doing plenty of flapping.
