Rising from the ashes of a tough year for live music, the Wild Boar Music Festival is determined to revamp gigs as you know them. The day’s rundown has been curated by The Underground to showcase some of the best Hong Kong bands in a SARS 2.0 responsible outdoor setting.
Get ready for a full afternoon and evening of musical antics.
Here are some options if you are unable to attend and would like to support our talented local professionals making music for Hong Kong.
Feed our musicians.
Musicians are organizing a food drive for professionals in need. Concerts and events had been cancelled for more than a year. Many musicians don’t have any income and the situation is really critical for a lot of them. To those who would like to donate (preferably non-perishable and canned goods), you can order online and have it delivered or drop food at the Hong Kong Musician’s Union (HKMU) headquarters (7/F Flat A1 Mirador Mansion, 54-56 Nathan Road Tshim Sha Tsui, Kowloon) or get in touch for more information.
Build a foundation for their future.
Community leaders have been busy working behind the scenes to establish a fundraising structure to accept financial support from everyone who wants to contribute once they become aware of the situation. The new website with bank details is expected to be completed by the festival once the account is finally open. We can all invest some of our entertainment savings over the past year to ensure that, when the time comes, our musicians will be healthy and happy and ready to play.
Get in touch if you’d like us to send you a note when it’s ready.
The afternoon session (1pm to 430pm) promises all-round entertainment to get you grooving, with performances from the likes of local jazz band Kowloon K, reggae band Murphy’s Law, all girl pop band WHIZZ, Good Funk Shui and Celtic rockers The Naggin Eejits.
The evening session (6pm to 10pm) will up the ante and crank up the volume. Rap acts TripleSix and Delta T, funk rock band Funkee Tung, psychedelic delights ShumKing Mansion, cinematic-rockers Nowhere Boys, and heavy metal headliners NiLiu 逆流 promise to bring out your wild side.
We’ve got what you need to turn this year around.
And last year, for that matter.
Tickets can be purchased in groups of two or four in accordance with local government regulations.
Gather some friends, rediscover the joy of live music and make some rocking new memories.
