Clockenflap, Hong Kong’s premier music and arts festival, has just announced the first round of musical acts who will be appearing on its stages during the 2017 festival, which just so happens to be its 10th edition. Returning to the Central Harbourfront 17–19 November, Clockenflap 2017 will feature a festival-closing performance by Bristol trip hop legends Massive Attack, as well as a Friday night headlining performance by beloved Candian indie-rock chanteuse Feist, whose latest album, Pleasure, is the singer-songwriter’s first new release in six years. Clockenflap will mark the Hong Kong debuts for both of these major acts.
Other notable acts unveiled in today’s announcement include American indie act The Dandy Warhols, Danish singer-songwriter MØ, reunited Hong Kong alternative act Fan Hung A, world-music performer Tinariwen, rising Korean R&B star Dean, American DJ/producer Matthew Dear, Chinese rap act Higher Brothers, Taiwanese indie band Hello Nico, and Hong Kong pop rockers Supper Moment.
