Clockenflap 2014 is almost here!
The first year of AnD a group of HK music and arts aficionados started the Clockenflap Festival. It was 2008 and the first two years were held at Cyberport. We were proud to have contributed a little bit to get the word out in the early years. Now 7 years later Clockenflap has grown to a 3 day festival with over 30,000 visitors. And reigns supreme as the preeminent music/arts festival in Hong Kong. Their success has spawned a new crop of festivals to emerge after several years of nothing (Rest In Peace Rockit festival and Wild Day Out!)
Next weekend Clockenflap 2014 welcomes none other than The Flaming Lips, Travis, Tenacious D and yes, Kool and the Gang. There's also a full line up of DJs including many of our local friends and international legends like DJ Jazzy Jeff. Last but not least there's art, film and food!
