Happy birthday, Clockenflap. You’re 10 and nearly all grown up. To celebrate, you’ve got some huge performances lined up over the weekend of November 17-19. There are some big name acts coming over this year – The Dandy Warhols, The Prodigy and The Bootleg Beatles among them – and a cast of Indie upstarts from Hong Kong and our neighbours; Supper Moment, Hello Nico and Higher Brothers. We’re looking forward to arguably the best weekend of the year and to catching these five bands.
Get your tickets now. 
 
Dean
Dean does R&B that is insanely smooth, using a soulful voice that is way beyond his 25 years. He’s written for K-Pop bands and the Korean singer is now doing his own thing. He’s doing an exclusive set in Hong Kong at Clockenflap.

Feist
Leslie Feist is as cool as. The Canadian rock chick kills everywhere she plays and her first visit to Hong Kong comes not a moment too soon. You might know Feist from her perky single 1234 or her work with uber super group Broken Social Scene. Go Team Canada.

Massive Attack
Back in the 1990s, trip hop was the thing. It was all about deep beats, a stoned-out sound and politics. Massive Attack basically invented the genre – although they don’t like the term – and either inspired or helped launch a thousand different bands and artists, including Tricky. Their live shows are epic and the sound is like nothing else. They’re closing the event on Sunday night. Be there.

Karen Marie Aagaard Ørsted Andersen – thankfully – goes by the stage name and delivers electronic pop with guts. The Danish artist has made dance floor bangers with Diplo, Major Lazer and Charli XCX, but finds inspiration in a little punk or Indie rock.

Skream
Dubstep producer and DJ Oliver Dene Jones knows his way around. Recording as Skream he’s been at work on the decks since the age of 20, when he released a self-titled album, and has since done garage, house, disco and techno. He’s a talented man, up for making a good time.
