In a Flap

Hong Kong Tatler - - Concierge -

With the mys­te­ri­ous theme “The Cos­mic and the Com­mu­nal,” the city’s largest mu­sic fes­ti­val, Clock­en­flap, is promis­ing to de­liver some far-out vibes to the West Kowloon Cul­tural Dis­trict with its three-day mash-up of mu­sic, art, food and all-round revelry. Head­line acts in­clude post-punk he­roes New Or­der (pic­tured), Bri­tish in­die band the Lib­ertines, disco-funk leg­ends Chic fea­tur­ing Nile Rodgers and Ir­ish singer-song­writer Damien Rice. For those look­ing for more than mu­sic, the or­gan­is­ers are build­ing up the fes­ti­val’s art com­po­nent. The Mag­net Palace—a six-me­tre-high pyra­mid struc­ture on the edge of the har­bour, will house mixed me­dia works from 10 avant-garde in­ter­na­tional and lo­cal artists. Novem­ber 27–29; West Kowloon Cul­tural Dis­trict; $480–1,940; clock­en­flap.com
