Discover new artists and enjoy Hong Kong’s best indie sounds at the February edition of Freespace Happening! The mix of familiar favourites and fresh faces kicks off with singer-songwriter Narbi presenting original folk and blues. Jazz vocalist Vincy Chan returns with Vincy & the Prototyke Lab, one of the projects featured on ‘Freespace Mixtape Vol. 1’ – which you can pick up on the day at the West Kowloon booth – and Stranded Whale, led by singer-songwriter Jabin Law and guitarist Tomii Chan, join Taiwanese instrumental group Cicada for a collaborative new crossover of strings and urban folk. As evening draws in, tfvsjs take to the stage to end the day with some instrumental math rock rhythms. 

Literature lovers curious about the future can visit The House of Hong Kong Literature’s fortune-telling booth for a glimpse of what lies ahead in the Year of the Dog. At the Big Circle, this season’s series of WE Dance wraps up with a marathon dance finale featuring ten-hours of showcases and workshops, plus an interactive performance choreographed especially for children under the age of three! And on the Sunset Lawn, the M+ Rover: Travelling Creative Studio returns for a pop-up visit with artist Ng Ka Chun, whose work invites you to rethink the purpose and meaning of ordinary objects.  

You can also browse the handicraft stalls at our regular Hoikokdaytan 2046, stop by our beer tent to quench your thirst with a Freespace Happening-inspired Heroes Beer or learn about the history and art of brewing mead from the HK Brewcraft team. And, before you leave, don’t forget to drop in and say hi to our furry friends from the Hong Kong Dog Rescue.

So, grab you friends and family, download our Freespace Happening App to make sure you’re up to date with what’s on, and head on over to the Nursery Park!
