One of the premiere annual music events held in Greater China, Clockenflap brings together top international talent in the form of Interpol, who recently released their well received sixth album, Marauder, alongside the likes of former Pulp frontman Jarvis Cocker, zany house music maestro Caribou, as well as some of the best Asian acts around – we’re looking at you Bohan Phoenix (China) and Cornelius (Japan).

Perhaps best known for his stint as Mr. Gilbert on popular British sitcom, The Inbetweeners, Greg Davies is also a top-notch stand-up comedian. Having made multiple appearances on panel shows like Mock the Week, Davies is a household name in the British Isles. He brings his somewhat crass and unapologetic humor to Hong Kong next month for a trio of dates. This should be hilarious.
Nov 22-25: Honma Hong Kong Open 2018

Since its first appearance in Hong Kong in 1959, this golf tournament has seen some of the sport’s best known players, like Colin Montgomerie, Bernhard Langer and Greg Norman, walk away with the spoils. Recent winners include Justin Rose and Rory McIlroy. This joint European Tour and Asian Tour event is a big one for South China’s golf lovers.
Nov 30: The Weeknd Live

The Weeknd is one of the world’s most popular and innovative pop stars. Having collaborated with the likes of Daft Punk, Ariana Grande and Kendrick Lamar, The Weeknd has about as much draw and mystique as a young Michael Jackson, not to mention his stellar dance moves. Watch him perform songs from his awesome 2016 release, Starboy, when he comes to Hong Kong this month.
