On the day of Dragon Boat Festival, watch 200 local and international racing teams compete in action-packed races at one of the city’s most prominent Dragon Boat Races. This event has been known to attract tens of thousands of spectators, and is an awesome way to celebrate the Chinese lunar holiday, which dates back over 2,000 years ago.

Jun 9: Fujiya & Miyagi

Heavily influenced by vintage ’70s krautrock and the stellar musical acts of the ’90s, Fujiya & Miyagi have been churning out sweet tunes since forming roughly two decades ago. Even though the band has seen members come and go over the years, it’s helped them create anew, releasing their latest album, Flashback, in 2019. Drawing on electronic pop, disco and krautrock, their show this month will be one to check out in Hong Kong.

Jun 9, 7.30pm; HKD290-365. MOM Livehouse.

Jun 14-16: Hong Kong Dragon Boat Carnival
