Life is too short to listen to bad music.

Continue the revelry right after the shows the entire weekend at WOO WEEKEND and Clockenflap’s official closing party all in WOOBAR.

Tatiana de León, aka T.A.T, is a highly sought-after DJ in Mexico City famous for her charismatic music style. She has played at the famous Razzmataz in Barcelona and has had music featured in ads for Jameson, Salvatore Ferragamo, YSL, Heineken, Swarovsky and more. She has also supervised the music for Fashion’s Night Out and Fashion Week México. Combining the talents of Damian Boylan and Jonathan Daltrey, PARVENU is a UK duo that will bring to the party a dose of their signature avant-garde and bass-heavy grooves with glitch and effected samples.

W Hotels and burn studios DJ Lab is a program initiated by W Hotels Global Music Director Michaelangelo L’Acqua with burn studios to identify rising DJs. Every year only a handful was chosen out of thousand applicants. In this program, DJs were provided with trainings from renowned music talents, including DJ/Producers White Shadow, James Lavelle and Gabriel Rene along with L’Acqua himself this year, to enhance their skills before embarking on a worldwide tour with W Hotels. T.A.T, Parvenu as well as Gio Vanhoutte and W Hong Kong’s Artistic Director Angus Wong (both alumni of W Hotels and burn studios DJ Lab) will utilize what they have learnt from all their experiences with W Hotels and keep the festival pulsating to perfection.

To kick-start the WOO WEEKEND, we have called in the Queen of Beijing Rock, NOVA HEART, to amp up the opening night! Hailed by Vogue China as “dark, sexy and beautiful – Music Karl Lagerfeld would be proud of” and chief producer of Hollywood Blockbuster “The Mummy 3” soundtrack, NOVA HEART would be bringing forth their sexy mix of psychedelic disco with lo-fi ethereal pop vocals to the stage.

Saturday Night would be ultra-feverish as PARVENU, T.A.T plus Chochukmo take on the stage for the second party. CHOCHUKMO is a 5-piece indie rock band based in Hong Kong with sounds that are described as a genre-blender, experimenting rock with some other different styles of music. Together with the bumping beats of PARVENU and T.A.T, a fun music spree is guaranteed.

Now onto the finale, Clockenflap’s official closing party – AFTER-FLAP, one of the most anticipated headlines for Clockenflap 2013, EFTERKLANG (DJ Set) will be there electrifying the party scene. EFTERKLANG is a Danish experimental band based in Berlin, formed by 3 childhood friends Mads Brauer, Casper Clausen and Basmus Stolberg. Forever fascinated by the purest possibilities of sound, since forming in 2001 EFTERKLANG have consistently adjusted their sonic modus operandi to suit very specific inspirations. They have a history of working with many guest musicians on their recordings and also produced a vast number of artistic music videos with filmmakers such as Karim Ghahwagi, Tobias Stretch, Anders Morgenthaler, Carolina Melis, and Jeremiah Zagar. The night will be become hotter as all W Hong Kong resident DJs will join hands in putting up a spectacular show.
