Make a splash this summer

The Next Wave is the latest big-scale event announcement in Hong Kong. In August, Thailand’s famous S20 Songkran Festival is happening for the first time. There will also be various international and local artists performing in the city. This includes Daniel Caesar and ATEEZ, both performing in Hong Kong for the first time. Also, don’t miss out on local artists like Joey Yung and Mirror members, who are hosting a series of shows.

While many Hongkoners may be opting to travel during the summer break with free ticket giveaways still up for grabs, there are plenty of events in the city. SummerFest, the largest outdoor summer carnival is making a spectacular return while the AIA Carnival is capping off the year.
