On Sunday, 14 March, a new music festival presented by The Underground is landing in Hong Kong to cure those Covid blues! 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. Showcasing some of the best Hong Kong bands in a Covid-responsible outdoor setting, get ready for a full afternoon and evening of musical antics!
The afternoon session (1 pm to 4.30 pm) 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 (6 pm to 10 pm) will up the ante and crank up the volume. With 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) promising to bring out your wild side, this live music festival has 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 government regulations. So gather some friends, rediscover the joy of live music, and make some rocking new memories.
Set to take place on The Grounds at AIA Vitality Park, audience members are seated in private pods with large deck chairs and do not need to leave their pod to order food and beverages. Extensive cleaning will be carried out between the afternoon and evening sessions so you can enjoy the festivities with peace of mind.
Covering the hottest new eats, the best places to play, offbeat takes on local culture, and so much more, Localiiz is every Hongkonger’s destination for how to live a well-rounded life in our vibrant city. Why the strange spelling? Well, Localiiz is designed to be your ‘local eyes’—and for that, you need two i’s.
