It’s still months away but tickets are already out for the annual music and arts festival, the biggest of its kind in the city. A shift in venue has been announced, with the Central Harbourfront the new site for the three-day festivities. The first wave of acts confirmed include headliners Sigur Ros and indie rockers Foals, along with Taiwanese singer-songwriter Cheer Chen and experimental duo Crystal Castles.

Wicked

Winner of a staggering 100 international accolades, including three Tony and two Olivier Awards, and based on Gregory Maguire’s series of novels, this musical is essentially an alternative take on the beloved Wizard of Oz. Except there’s a twist: the Wicked Witch of the West and the Good Witch of the North are no longer foes but, as unlikely as it may seem, friends with opposing personalities. Go figure! In English with Chinese surtitles.

Air Supply

Air Supply sightings in Hong Kong are nothing rare. So as this year marks the soft-rock duo’s 41st anniversary, it’s only fitting they put on another gig here.
