Another stellar music festival line-up sees indie acts like Taiwan’s soulful rockers Sunset Rollercoaster combine with the likes of Thai musician Phum Viphurit, London-based indie pop band Kero Kero Bonito and Taiwanese rapper OZI, as well as Hong Kong-based acts like Dusty Bottle and Cocoonics. If you’re going to attend one music event in Hong Kong this month, make sure it’s this one. 

Sun May 12, 6pm; HKD680 plus HKD10 fee. Kitec Rotunda 3. Tickets.

May 16: Andy Parsons

This Goatee-sporting British comic is one of the quirkier characters on the UK scene. Best known for his appearances on a variety of funny panel shows, Parsons is also known for his radio and podcast work, as well as for appearing on travel documentaries like World’s Most Dangerous Roads. He’s also got a hilarious dry wit to boot. Don’t miss out.

Thu May 16, 8pm; HKD488 plus HKD10 fee. Grappa’s Cellar. Tickets.

May 16-19: Affordable Art Fair

Affordable is a relative term, as art works on show will retail for between HKD1,000 and HKD100,000. But, if you are still having withdrawal symptoms following March’s artsy festivities in Hong Kong, this is the perfect place for you, as 115 galleries will showcase works over the course of the fair’s four days.

Thu-Sun May 16-19, various times; HKD90-300. Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center. Tickets.

May 25-26: Young Master Invitational Beer Festival

Sat-Sun May 25-26, 1-8pm; HKD380-1,100. House 1881. Tickets.
