Off-sea­son open-air con­cert

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - CITY LIGHTS -

Although the heat out­side seems more con­ducive to pool par­ties than open-air live mu­sic shows, The Week­end, play­ing, un­sur­pris­ingly, next week­end at West Kowloon Cul­tural District (WKCD) sounds like a good enough ex­cuse to get out of the air-con­di­tioned in­te­ri­ors.

Over 70 in­die mu­sic bands culled from all across Hong Kong will come to­gether for a three-day open-air con­cert on the rolling greens along the har­bor­front of WKCD. Co-hosted by The Sun En­ter­tain­ment Con­cert and Wow and Flut­ter, the mu­si­cal cav­al­cade will run si­mul­ta­ne­ously on four dif­fer­ent stages, named af­ter the ge­o­graph­i­cal ar­eas in Hong Kong.

Head­lin­ing the show are the lo­cal fa­vorites such as the Can­tonese hip-hop group LMF, Can­topop group Rub­berBand, the pop singing duo An­thony Wong and Tats Lau of Tat Ming Pair, the rock bands Mod­ern Chil­dren and Phoon. Added at­trac­tions in­clude art in­stal­la­tions, a craft mar­ket, fam­ily-ori­ented ac­tiv­i­ties and lo­cal food stands.

This could make for a good way to fill the gap un­til the open-air mu­sic sea­son peaks in Novem­ber.
