Full-power Flappage is about to invade Hong Kong, so it seems foolish to ignore this monumental musical event! You might think the city would have other regular musical festivals, but that is sadly not the case as profit is routinely prioritized over anything else in this supposedly international city. Sure, HK always has a lot of shows going on, but it’s “see and be seen” over musical quality all too often. At least Clockenflap, the hopefully now annual music fest, is supporting true musical diversity (especially if we ignore the lack of reggae music…). Nonetheless, there’s a lot of great bands and DJs that will be braving the inclement weather this weekend!
Time Out Hong Kong has some solid write-ups, including a feature, their Top 10 acts, local bands not to be missed, an interview with Team Clockenflap, and a helpful map.
The Groove Thief’s official recommendations include:
Azealia Banks, Noughts and Exes, Uptown Rockers, !!!, DJ Enso XXX and Dan F
De La Soul, Brandt Brauer Frick, Magnetic Soul vs Heavy, Bassmen 3, Kid Fresh, Yao and Tiga
Now if only these acts were scheduled so they could all actually be seen…
