Clockenflap Is Back!

Clockenflap is Back! Hong Kong’s Biggest International Outdoor Music and Arts Festival Returns After a Three-year Hiatus

The iconic city festival returns to Central Harbourfront on 3-5 March 2023

Clockenflap, Hong Kong’s biggest international outdoor music and arts festival, today announced the news that fans have been waiting to hear: the legendary event is returning to Central Harbourfront in March 2023. Following a three-year hiatus, the much-loved festival is 100% confirmed to take place from Friday 3 to Sunday 5 March 2023.

Reclaiming its place as one of the most globally renowned events on Hong Kong’s cultural calendar, Clockenflap will return with the full, world-class festival experience that music fans in the city have come to know and love: a spectacular outdoor environment featuring multiple stages; a tempting array of irresistible F&B outlets; and an eclectic lineup of must-see international, regional and local acts. The event will also be free standing, with festivalgoers able to move easily and without restriction between the various stages and attractions throughout the weekend.

The March 2023 event will mark the 12th edition of Clockenflap, and the festival’s return will be a reason to celebrate for lovers of live music and arts in Hong Kong and across the region. Launched at Cyberport in 2008, before moving to the West Kowloon Waterfront Promenade in 2011 and then Central Harbourfront in 2016, Clockenflap has forged an unparalleled reputation for creating a friendly, fun and cutting-edge festival experience, and its absence has been keenly felt by music fans in the city over the past four years.

Clockenflap is also known for embracing genres from across the musical spectrum, and its world-class lineup has won plaudits all around the world. Buzzfeed called it “Asia’s answer to Coachella”, while two-time Clockenflap performer Nile Rodgers named it as his favourite festival globally, saying: “It’s awesome. It’s so beautiful, the way the sun sets on the stage. It’s completely magical.”

The first lineup announcement and early bird ticket details will be announced soon. Unrefunded tickets purchased for Clockenflap 2021 remain valid for the new dates, and the arrangements for using these tickets will be shared with existing ticket holders closer to the festival.
