Last weekend, the debut three day Dragonland Music Festival took place outdoors in the heart of Hong Kong’s Central district. It’s billed as the first time EDM is meeting pop, but it’s more than that. Now that the pioneering music extravaganza Clockenflap is 10 years old this year, it also shows that the maturing music city is ready for another music festival – one that features Black Eyed Peas, Iggy Azalea, Steve Aoki, Zedd, Carly Rae Jepsen, Infected Mushroom, Mike Posner, Redfoo and yes, the city’s own longtime “Heavenly King” Leon Lai (as well as others).
Known best for his five-piece electronic music band Neon Indian, Alan Palomo composes and fronts the group as well as performs as solo artist VEGA. After playing Clockenflap 2015, Palermo is back once again this autumn, this time spending his time behind the decks rather than the mic and keyboard at a smaller gig at Kee Club. We catch up with the artist ahead of his set.
From the same team behind dragon-I, which barely needs introduction as one of Hong Kong's most successful clubs, a brand new music lounge and restaurant is set to open its doors on 10 Nov. Named Cassio, the venue will take over the space on the second floor of LKF Tower, and is an eclectic three-room space featuring retro pieces, such as the vintage-style wallpaper, a chandelier inspired by the storied Lutrario Dance Hall, and onyx-topped bar tables. It also features a 55-seat restaurant, celebrating the Spanish way of wining and dining a night away, thanks to the enlisting of one of London's most popular tapas bars Barrafina as its kitchen partner.
We ask founder and Cassio curator Gilbert Yeung what's to expect at this brand new venue.

Ask interior designer Ashley Sutton about what he thinks about his recent bar openings in Hong Kong, and you’ll be met with his well known sense of nonchalance: “I dunno, it’s just another bar.”
But his three venues in Hong Kong—peacock-themed lounge Ophelia which opened last year, and this year’s hidden cocktail concierge J.Boroski and storybook concept bar The Iron Fairies this year—are some of the most innovative bar designs Hong Kong has seen in recent years.
His couldn’t-care-less attitude to his completed venues, in fact, mask a lot of passion and attention to detail. The concept behind the most recent opening, The Iron Fairies Hong Kong draws from the first Iron Fairies in Bangkok, Sutton’s debut design project a decade ago, which sprouted from a factory space making iron fairy figurines. Sutton sat down with us right after the opening of Iron Fairies and allowed us to pick his brain.
