It’s that time of year again and we are extra amped up for this year’s installment of Clockenflap. There are more big names in the lineup, including headliners like English rock band The Libertines (performing Saturday) and American rapper A$AP Rocky (Saturday).

Bands like Ratatat will bring up the beat with their “rocktronica” sound, but there’s plenty of mellow tunes too. You’ll want to take a seat for Irish crooner Damien Rice (Friday), US songstress Rachael Yamagata (Saturday) and American folk rock number Sun Kil Moon (Friday).

And representing Hong Kong? Be sure to check out electronic R&B twosome The Anello as well as hardcore punk rockers King Ly Chee. Both will be on stage making Hong Kong proud.

In between your favorite acts, there’s a ton of visual and interactive art to check out (who remembers the Prawn Helmet from last year?), countless food tents, plenty of beer, and a few quiet-ish corners too — think Cinema Silenzio and the ever-popular Silent Disco.
