In total around 100 top international, regional and local acts will perform across 6 stages, while the festival will also feature a cornucopia of Instagram-worthy installations, outlandish interactive experiences and lively family-oriented entertainment.



Other new acts just added to the lineup include BIG SHAQ, 黃玠瑋ZOOEY WONDER, THE LOW MAYS, INSTINCT OF SIGHT, GTB, 五條人WU TIAO REN and many more.

With six distinctive stages to choose from – including the HARBOURFLAP STAGE, FWD STAGE, YOURMUM STAGE BY RED BULL, ACORN/ROBOT STAGE, SILENT DISCO POWERED BY FWD MAX, and CLUB MAX BY FWD – and a deeply diverse array of genres, music legends and cutting-edge acts from around the world, Clockenflap has something to delight the music lover in everyone. This year’s supremely eclectic lineup includes 29 acts making their Hong Kong debuts, 6 Asia-exclusives and 7Clockenflap-exclusive sets.

URBAN MAESTROS: HIP-HOP BEATMAKERS & CUTTING-EDGE R&B
The prodigious talent behind the brilliant ‘American Teen’, US R&B sensation KHALID leads a cutting-edge collection of hypnotic MCs and hip-hop beatmakers at this year’s festival. Also flying the flag for contemporary urban music are Cfanadian alternative R&B outfit RHYE, tongue-in-cheek UK grime star BIG SHAQ, Washington, D.C.-based hip-hoppers ODDISEE & GOOD COMPNY and reggae-influenced South London grime DJ/producerSWINDLE.

ASIAN SENSATIONS: THE BEST & BRIGHTEST ACTS FROM AROUND THE REGION
Committed to showcasing the finest musical talent from around Asia, Clockenflap welcomes a host of trailblazers from the region. Taiwan is represented by 吳青峰, the frontman of veteran indie rockers sodagreen and renowned solo artist; sultry jazz/R&B chanteuse 9M88; acclaimed singer-songwriter安溥ANPU; and folk songstress黃玠瑋ZOOEY WONDER. From Japan, there’s maverick multi-instrumentalist CORNELIUS, who has been described as “the Japanese Beck”; jazz-and-funk-inspired indie outfit SUCHMOS; electrifying Tokyo alt-dance trio D.A.N. and hotly tipped Manila newcomers IV OF SPADES. Avant-garde electropop chanteuse CIFIKA is flying the flag for Korea, while Hubei-born, US-raised rapper BOHAN PHOENIX and Haifeng indie-folksters五條人WU TIAO REN highlight the breadth of China’s musical spectrum.
