About

Clockenflap is Hong Kongs biggest Festival for music and arts. They play music from all genres. Clockenflap takes place from November 17-19, and Massive Attack are set to close the festival on the Sunday night with their only performance in Southeast Asia this year. The Clockenflap shows will be the first in Hong Kong by both Massive Attack and Feist.

Massive Attack formed in Bristol, in the west of England, in 1988 and became the standout act in the city’s influential trip-hop movement, which also included acts such as Portishead and Tricky. Taking influences from hip hop, reggae and soul, the outfit pioneered a hypnotic, bass-heavy sound and produced some of the ’90s best-loved dance anthems, such as Unfinished Sympathy and Karmacoma.

But before Massive Attack take to the main stage, the multiple Grammy-nominated indie pop singer Feist will be headlining the festival’s opening night on the Friday.Born Leslie Feist, she has worked with many of Canada’s biggest alternative music names, including Broken Social Scene and Peaches, and recently released her acclaimed fifth studio album, Pleasure.

This will be the second year Clockenflap is being staged on the Central Harbourfront. The festival was moved to the site last year after being staged for five years at the West Kowloon Cultural District site - a period in which the event underwent massive growth and evolved into the city’s biggest annual music and arts festival.

With this year marking 10 years since Clockenflap was launched at Cyberport in Pok Fu Lam, festival organisers have high hopes for the anniversary event.
