Founded in 2008 by Jay Forster, Justin Sweeting and Mike Hill, Clockenflap was launched to give Hong Kong a festival worthy of our major metropolis. Clockenflap has never been motivated by profit – over the years, the organizers have kept a firm focus on providing Hong Kong with the kind of festival people crave and deserve.
In its 6th year, Clockenflap continues to grow from strength to strength. 18,000 festival goers enjoyed 2012's event, with an expected 30,000 people set to attend Clockenflap 2013.
Inspired by such international festivals as Glastonbury, Fuji Rock and South by Southwest, the team has simultaneously showcased some of the world’s most established acts, while putting a strong spotlight on the region’s finest up-and-coming musicians.
Since its inception, the organizers have faced every imaginable challenge, seeking to establish a sustainable festival format for the city. Equipped with a true Hong Kong spirit, and support from the wider community and the WKCD, they have persevered to deliver a signature event that places Hong Kong at the international festival level.
Last year’s international headlining acts were awestruck by the incredible location and natural setting, planted seemingly in the middle of our world famous skyline. This is your chance in 2013 to experience a completely different side to Hong Kong: escape the hustle and bustle of the city for a world of music and arts, grass and greenery, all set against the backdrop of Hong Kong’s skyline.
