Clockenflap 2013 was impressive on multiple levels. The music and arts festival turned the city’s West Kowloon district into a sea of people over the first weekend of December.

The scale of the festival was larger than ever before with a great variety of talented, top-notch artists. In fact, the number of interesting acts sometimes made it difficult to choose which performance to catch!

With a name like Clockenflap, the festival has a wacky, indie spirit. Sneaker brand Vans did a good job integrating their tent into the festival.
