Celebrate in 6 Stages

With such a massive line-up, great acts will share six music stages during the three-day festival: Harbourflap Stage, Clockenflap’s mighty main stage; FWD Stage, which will showcase diversity through artists like Caribou (Canada) and Suchmos (Japan); Your Mum Stage for groundbreaking artists you shouldn’t miss; Club Max by FWD for the coolest DJs plus non-stop dancing; Acorn/Robot Stage for family-friendly entertainment; and Silent Disco for a collective experience that allows you to dance with your headphones on. Everyone is encouraged to experience all the stages meticulously curated by the festival.

Immerse Yourself In Art

Apart from music, Clockenflap makes sure to showcase art through visuals and performance. Giant inflatables, narrative presentations, and balloon sculptures are just some of the art attractions you should watch out for. Don’t miss Robert Bose (US), Designs in Air (UK), Sky Yutaka (HK) as they grace Clockenflap with their craft.

Enjoy Food, Shopping, and More

What’s a festival without food and shopping? Recharge yourself with food and drinks from local concessionaires and spend your well-earned HKD on clothes, records, and knick-knacks sold across the festival grounds. Band merch will also be available so better save money for that!
