Clockenflap 2016 is off to a strong start with record-breaking Early Bird sales and an outstanding music lineup that now includes LCD Soundsystem (US), George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic (US), 世界末日SEKAI NO OWARI (JP) and more.

Already in its ninth year, the highly anticipated three-day event is set to be the biggest and best edition yet. The beloved festival will take place Friday, November 25, to Sunday, November 27, at Central Harbourfront, the most accessible of locations right in the heart of the city.

The annual festival is a unique opportunity for Hong Kong music and arts lovers to enjoy a quality lineup of talent rarely seen in the city. Above and beyond the music, the event will offer a cornucopia of entertainment to explore, from performing arts and installations to great food and a wealth of activities to enjoy with friends and family.

Since the announcement of the first lineup, big names such as Icelandic heavyweights Sigur Rós, festival favorite Foals and folk singer-songwriter Cheer Chen have attracted an overwhelming response from fans all over the world. Never one to disappoint, Clockenflap continues to excite with the addition of Dance-punk phenomenon LCD Soundsystem (US). The Sunday night headline act, the New York natives are back in the limelight following a five-year hiatus.  Embarking on a world tour, they were top of the wish list for every festival this year, and will perform at Clockenflap as their only Asian festival date of 2016.

A new addition to the stunning lineup is Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic (US). The P-Funk master will also be making his Clockenflap debut this year. His recent collaborations with Kendrick Lamar and Ice Cube prove that the legend has still got it, and we’re delighted to welcome him to the festival.

 

Rounding off the latest lineup announcement is J-Rock’s rising star, 世界末日SEKAI NO OWARI (JP).  Their unique sound has garnered them an incredible fan base both at home and around the world. Best known for their slightly outlandish, fantasy-like live performances, this is one act that must be seen.

 

 

New additions to the lineup also include: Rødhåd (DE), BADBADNOTGOOD (CA), tfvsjs (HK), and 慘慘豬 CharmCharmChu (HK). Festival enthusiasts can preview the most updated lineup on clockenflap.com.
