"Here are plenty of reasons to travel to Hong Kong, but a major one is Clockenflap – one of the city’s biggest music and arts festivals that draws massive international crowds every year. Taking place in the burgeoning West Kowloon Cultural District over three days each November, Clockenflap last year drew international acts of all kinds – from long-time festival heavyweights The Flaming Lips to comparative newcomers like Melbourne’s Jess Ribeiro, and everything in between (no, really – other acts included New York rapper Le1f, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Scottish faves Chvrches and so many more).

MUSIC

The lifeblood of the festival, this year’s music class of Clockenflap has been thoughtfully assembled for your avid discovery and optimum joy. A motley compilation that is a wink to the future, a nod to the past. Quite frankly, it’s the most future classic, cosmic-sonic crack squad of a line up ever assembled under our fair city’s skyline. Let’s do this.

ART
We take our art seriously. That is to say we’re serious about our art, being: always inspirational, always engaging, sometimes silly and consistently jaw-droppingly, gasp-enducing. With an open call this year to artists everywhere, a most marvelous menagerie of visual, audio and performance art awaits you at Clockenflap 2015. Instagrammers at the ready…

FILM
Since the dawn of Clockenflap, our film tent has been the cloaked rabbit hole for the curious to escape the hustle and bustle of the festival and enter into new worlds of audio-visual imagination. So collect your headset as you enter “Cinema Silenzio” and allow yourself to be enveloped, engrossed and truly affected by our 2015 screening programme.

FAMILY
“We are family”. We hope you’ll not just have your sisters with you, but also your brothers, parents, grannies, in laws, cousins twice removed and of course your children.

FOOD
Food, Food, glorious food (and drink!) Like everything else at Clockenflap, we’ve lovingly gathered a diverse platter of the very finest, to serve up to you wonderful festival goers. Catering to all budgets and tastes, a veritable cornucopia of Hong Kong’s culinary boutique offerings awaits. Come hungry!

CLOCKENCRAFT MARKET
