Whilst the loss of arguably the biggest act on the lineup in LCD Soundsystem was a big blow to Hong Kong’s most celebrated festival, Clockenflap has bounced back with a killer new round of acts.
Leading the charge of new additions are legendary electronic duo The Chemical Brothers (UK), South African rap-ravers Die Antwoord (SA), R&B mastermind Blood Orange (UK) and American indie folk rockers Yo La Tengo (USA). Also added to the lineup are Korea’s ….Huh!? (KO), post-rockers 65daysofstatic (UK) and Hong Kong’s own Shura (HK).
Organizers have promised additional act to join the diverse musical lineup that already boasts Sigur Rós (IS), Foals (UK) and 陳綺貞 Cheer Chen (TW) as headliners when the mega festival comes to Hong Kong’s Central Harbourfront from November 25 to November 27.
The eagerly anticipated festival offers fans of music and arts a rare opportunity to enjoy world-class talent in the heart of Hong Kong and while music has always formed the cornerstone of the event, festival-goers will be treated to a wide range of performing arts and installations and can enjoy a veritable smorgasbord of food from some of the city’s hottest restaurants.
Stay tuned for more exciting announcements as they come to light.
