Where to find the best gigs in Hong Kong, as recommended by Clockenflap co-founder Justin Sweeting

Justin Sweeting may be the main music producer behind Clockenflap, Hong Kong’s biggest music festival, but the born-and-bred Hongkonger started out by building a musical following across smaller venues. Here, he gives us a rundown of some of his favourite spots.


KITEC

KITEC

KITEC Get me there {{title}} Address {{address}} Website {{website}} More info has a few venue spaces across various sizes, which we use depending on the profile and pull of the artist in question. So from working with the likes of Grimes, Rodrigo y Gabriela and Hyukoh in the 600-cap MusicZone, to Elbow and Two Door Cinema Club in their 1500-cap Rotundas, through to their largest room, Star Hall, where the likes of Ellie Goulding, Justice, Bastille and M83 all made for gloriously memorable shows.

The Wanch

The Wanch

The Wanch Get me there {{title}} Address {{address}} Website {{website}} More info has been a local music institution for 30 years now. Featuring live programming every night of the week with no cover charge, including their ever popular open-mic night, The Wanch is as much a gathering spot for like-minded souls to meet over drinks and a shared love of music, and the action often spills out on to the street.

MacPherson Stadium

MacPherson Stadium is a multi-purpose sports venue in Mong Kok, and in recent years has also proved itself as the best mid-scale venue in Hong Kong, in my humble opinion. We’ve put on artists including Morrissey, Bon Iver, Tame Impala and many others in there, and being able to fully control the sound and production, plus fully license a bar inside, all adds up to creating great gig-going experiences. Simple pleasures.
