The storied annual music fest Clockenflap released the first glimpse of this year’s lineup today, and so far, things appear to be shaping up nicely for fans of electropop, Gucci gangs, and mandolins.
US multi-platinum singer-songwriter Halsey, SoundCloud breakout Lil Pump, and the Grammy-winning British indie folk-rock outfit Mumford & Sons topped the list of the first round of lineup announcements, followed by Taiwanese singer-songwriters Crowd Lu and Waa Wei, and rapper Leo王.
Clockenflap is set to take place, as it has in recent years, at the Central Harbourfront from Friday, Nov. 22–Sunday, Nov. 24.
The fest promises a little something for everyone: for fans of English indie rock, there’s The Kooks; for the psychedelic set, there’s Australia’s King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard; and if “irrepressible kawaii metal” gets your Pokémon pumping, there’s the Japanese girl group Babymetal.
