Midori brings top local names to scenic secret location in Hong Kong

For those craving for another secret location event, good news—there’s one coming up this week. Midori is set to be an unparalleled experience that blends music, nature, and culture.

Presented as a first-ever collab by Hong Kong-based event promoters Y2K and Omni Agency, this boutique mini-festival will take place in a stunning, secluded location on May 25-26.

Midori promises a stellar line-up, featuring some of Hong Kong’s top house, techno, and bass DJs. Expect a top-notch selection of tunes from Mengzy, Just Bee, Vence, Tom Price, and Gargoyle Girlfriend, all powered by a custom Funktion-One soundsystem.

However, the event goes beyond just music; it's a celebration of Hong Kong’s breathtaking natural beauty and vibrant local culture. Attendees can explore a marketplace, participate in various workshops, enjoy camping facilities, and savour delicious offerings from top-quality local f’n’b brands.

On the second day, Midori transforms into a family-friendly event that starts at 10am. After the Saturday night party ends at 2am, the festival re-opens with activities suitable for all ages and live performances from Celestial and Mr. Koo, plus a closing DJ set from local favourites, Chaotic Pavilion.

FYI; Sunday single day tickets are going for only HKD20, making it an affordable way to experience Midori for everyone.

“The concept behind Midori was to create an outdoor experience with minimal intervention in nature, highlighting the natural world while being immersed in it. At the same time, we wanted to present many of the best established and emerging DJs in Hong Kong, along with some great live acts on Sunday,” says Y2K founder, Nathan Cornish.

He adds: “It’s also the city’s last boutique festival before it gets too hot and wet! But Midori is also unique in that we don’t just offer a great lineup of music, but also a range of workshops and activities which highlight this beautiful venue and its surroundings, and also add some fun to the festival experience.”

Various unique workshops will also be available for attendees to join, from the art of Chinese bamboo steamers, permaculture, and sun printing.

Festival-goers can also enjoy retro video gaming, lawn games like cornhole and boules, and an interactive “liquid light” installation.

Getting to Midori is pretty easy. Attendees will be asked to hop on a high-speed ferry from Central to Lantau, and take a short 20-minute walk to the venue. Exact directions will be sent to ticket holders beforehand.

After enjoying the event, organisers have given the option to camp out at the scenic campground (for HKD100 per spot, first come, first served) or catch a late-night ferry back to Central for a repeat experience the next day.

Advance weekend tickets are available for HKD380, with special offers including a "buy-four-get-one" group offer, plus a 25% discount for students.
