Hong Kong’s Clockenflap To Go Ahead, Artists Added

Despite many cancellations of concerts in Hong Kong over the past six months amid anti-China protests, the organizers of the city’s biggest arts and music festival, Clockenflap, have announced that the show will go on as planned Nov. 22 through 24. 

Moreover, they announced a slew of new additions to the roster, including Bombay Bicycle Club, Nick Murphy, Glass Animals, Adrian Sherwood, These New Puritans, Regurgitator and Metronomy. The already announced headliners for the event include Halsey, Mumford & Sons, Babymetal and Lil Pump. 
In a statement, festival head Mike Hill said, “It has been our aim to bring Hongkongers together in positive ways, and this mission has never been more relevant. With the ongoing situation in the city, and with many other events choosing to cancel, we felt that it was particularly important that people have a fun and inspiring homegrown event to look forward to.”
