Canadian Music Hall of Famer and singer-songwriter legend Bryan Adams will be performing in Hong Kong in January 2017. Read more for the details and where to grab your tickets.

Despite the recent unfortunate withdrawal of South African rap-rave duo Die Antwoord from this year's Clockenflap lineup (plus LCD Soundsystem's previous pull out from the festival), the final list of acts—totalling to more than 115 international and local artists—is still very much worth your every dime. Read on for the highlights.

The experience of a guest that has purchased a ticket can easily be ruined at public events where there is poor management of queues for the general public. Here are our tips for how to fix them.

Generally the different types of queues that you have at a public event are:

1) Entrance/Exit
Entrances and exits are major points in the venue that need to be clear and in motion throughout an event. Security should be at both points making sure people know where to go, that they are keeping the route clear and not preventing people from getting in and out of the event smoothly. If there are queues and it is in constant motion, sometimes we place some performances by them to entertain the guests while they wait. This makes the  queuing experience a bit more enjoyable before they get into the event and forget about the wait. The security is also there to make sure people don't jump the line, which if not monitored can cause disruption even before the guests have entered the event.

We thought we lucked out when initial announcements for the Clockenflap lineup featured the likes of Sigur Rós and Foals, but the latest update—with additions including The Chemical Brothers, Die Antwoord, Blood Orange and Yo La Tengo—has us excited more than ever for November to arrive.

The Chemical Brothers from the UK are simply legends in the dance music community producing some massive timeless tracks and have performed all over the world. Die Antwoord are from South Africa and honestly I first heard about them when I watched the film Chappie. Since then I have explored their music and can't wait to see them live in Hong Kong. Watch a selection of their music videos below and for the full line-up of Clockenflap, click here.

TAMC Seminars & Pool Party and Hotel Packages:


This year will be a HKSEVENS Kick-off Concert on Wednesday, 6 April, at the Sevens Village directly across from the Stadium. David Hasselhoff will be the host of the concert and will also appear inside the Stadium throughout Sevens weekend. He will also be joined by Scottish rockers The Proclaimers and ABBA tribute band Björn Again.

Tickets for the concert, which is capped at 3,500 spectators, will be available for: HK$199 and will go on sale from 1 March through Ticketflap.

If you have an artist/performer coming to Hong Kong to perform for one/two hours (paid or unpaid) you need to apply for an employment visa for them to be legally allowed to perform in Hong Kong.

The application is very similar to someone coming to work in Hong Kong on a full time basis. The difference is that some of the material requested by the Hong Kong Immigration Department will vary between the cases.

The Hong Kong Immigration Department have a specific list of what is required for a successful applicant and it is important to be able to deliver all of this at one time, complete and in order. This allows them to complete their review in one time and make their decision on if the case is going to be approved, more information is required, or it is to be rejected.
