The word is finally out; Clockenflap is back. Announced just yesterday November 8, 2022, Hong Kong’s biggest international outdoor music and arts festival will once again grace Central Harbourfront after a three-year hiatus. Dates have also been "100% confirmed", so make sure you schedule it in your calendars for March 3-5, 2023.
Throughout the festival-deprived pandemic, the brand has been keeping music enthusiasts in high spirits with its steady stream of podcasts on Clockenflapmusic.com. As much as we appreciated the slew of fresh Hong Kong sounds, we couldn't be more thrilled about their IRL return.
The full, world-class festival experience those lucky enough to have indulged in before will come back in all its glory; multiple outdoor stages, mouth-watering F&B tenants and, of course, an adeptly curated line-up of local, regional and international talents.

It’s completely magical,” mentioning Clockenflap as his favourite global festival.
