Love music festivals, but not the crowded tents, cheap beer and muddy parks?

Enter ALTN8. Hong Kong’s first electronic dance music festival takes place on Saturday, March 11, right in the heart of the city. Coupled with fancy brunches and classy cocktails, the festival runs all day and night at eight participating Central venues including Volar, Spiga, Fish & Meat, Mercedes Me, Zafran, Rula Bula and Halcyon.

The full lineup of 40 electronic dance artists playing from midday past midnight includes local DJ Janette Slack who previously played Clockenflap and Secret Island Party, cross-genre artist Shigeto who mixes folk, jazz and hip-hop influences with electronica, and self-taught Thai DJ Nakadia who played her underground techno sets in Koh Samui and ANTS Ibiza.

To further differentiate themselves from the standard festival fare, ALTN8 is also offering a limited number of pre-festival brunch tickets at Spiga or Fish & Meat. Each venue will be offering a variety of drink deals, so you can trade in the usual cheap beer for a bespoke Bloody Mary.

VIP guests will also have exclusive access to Stockton, where all of the performances from the eight venues will be live streamed using the latest technology from Devialet.

Other perks for VIP guests include a complimentary mini Moet, priority entry and backstage access to all venues, and a custom-made leather festival wristband from local brand Koncept.

So if you’re tired of the same-old, try an alternate music festival experience with ALTN8.

Regular tickets start at $680; VIP $1,380.

Check out the full lineup and book now to avoid disappointment.
