Rockit Hong Kong Music Festival was held each autumn from 2003 to 2006 in Hong Kong's Victoria Park. The event was created by Nimal Jayawardena (AKA Nimaru Fujii) and Didier Li of Matrix Entertainment Group.


The first Rockit festival, 25–26 October 2003, was headlined by Japanese Metal Band Electric Eel Shock and Australia's Regurgitator.


In 2004 the event coincided with a three-day weekend (22-24 October) so the organisers extended the event to the Friday afternoon. The headliners were The Cooper Temple Clause on the Saturday and Regurgitator on the Sunday.


Rockit 2005 was held 12–13 November.

Brian Jonestown Massacre were scheduled to headline the Saturday but cancelled 24 hours before the show.


Rockit 2006 was held 14–15 October.

The Rockit Website has a video feature highlighting the local bands trying out to Play At Rockit. Interesting look at the Hong Kong Indie Music scene.


Rockit ceased in 2006, largely because of difficulties in securing necessary permissions from Hong Kong government. In 2009, the organisers announced a multi-stage music and arts event in Macau, called Mima Revolution.[1] Music directors Jay Forster and Justin Sweeting together with Mike Hill went on to found the Clockenflap festival from 2008.
