Hong Kong has an incredible music scene. Whether it’s laid-back indie or head-banging metal, an increasing number of local acts are making their voices heard. If you want to listen to these homegrown talents, one of the best ways to do so is at The Week, the longest genre-spanning music fest in the city. Kicking off on March 3, this year’s event sees seven themed nights spread across seven venues across the city. You’ll get to hear everything from Sai Kung-based blues and folk rockers The Pineapple Jam to alt-rock heroes Nowhere Boys and Black Coffee. Special mention also goes out to the hip-hop showcase, featuring stalwarts such as 24Herbs as well as up-and-comers. As a primer for what’s to come, The Week’s co-founder Paul Sedille takes us through some of his favourite tracks performed by this year’s featured artists.
