The countdown to Hong Kong’s biggest music and arts festival is on and the first wave of artists has now been announced for the much-awaited 3-day festival. Clockenflap 2019 is set to be held at Central Harbourfront 22-24 November and as always will attract an array of established artists, festival favourites and breakthrough acts from around the world.

Mumford and sons, Halsey and Lil Pump collage

Among the big-name acts which are confirmed to appear at Clockenflap 2019 are US electropop sensation HALSEY, British indie giants Mumford & Sons and controversial Miami rap star Lil Pump with many more names yet to be announced. The first-phase line-up includes 21 Hong Kong live debuts and promises to be an exciting weekend for music-lovers in the city.

Asian bands playing at Clockenflap

In addition to top international acts, Clockenflap also strives to bring Asia’s most compelling musical talents to Hong Kong and this year will be no different. Straight from the exciting Taiwan music scene, acclaimed singer songwriters Crowd Lu and Waa Wei as well as rapper LEO 王 are set to take the stage at this year’s festival. Fans of Japanese girl groups can look forward to kawaii metal duo Babymetal and offbeat electronic rock band Chai. Korea is also represented by indie rockers Say Sue Me and rapper Colde from the hip-hop duo Off On Off.
