Wolf Alice, The Vaccines, Interpol and more are headed to Hong Kong’s Clockenflap Festival

David Byrne, Shame and Alvvays are also headed to Asia next month.

Festival season may have wound down for the year in the UK, but if you’re still craving a big three-day knees up then Hong Kong’s Clockenflap has announced a heavy-hitting line-up for 2018.

Taking place at Central Harbourfront from November 9-11, the first wave of artists has a strong UK and US focus, with Interpol, Khalid and David Byrne sitting at the top of the line-up.

Elsewhere, a host of DIY faves will be heading to China, including recent Mercury Prize winners Wolf Alice, festie faves The Vaccines, 2018 kings Shame, Alvvays and more. Further down the bill, Sunflower Bean and breakthrough New Yorkers Bodega are also set to appear.

Further artists will be announced soon, and tickets are on sale now.
