On March 27th 28th, at a pier of Kaohsiung, a southern city in Taiwan, Megaport festival
strikes back after one year hiatus.
With over 120 bands, 10 stages and more than 10,000 participants this year, Megaport, with its nearly 15 years of history, is without a doubt one of the biggest live music events in Taiwan. This year, livestreaming of the two main stages were also available on LINE TODAY, giving chances for oversea viewers a quick glance of the Taiwanese music scene.
With agile and effective response to the pandemic, Taiwan has largely held concerts and events as normal. Nonetheless, the exciting crowds at Megaport, which was its full capacity, were all masked up. Fans from all over Taiwan filled out the health management form and took body temperature while entering indoor venues.
As the bracing spring breeze came, more and more music fests were about to follow the footstep of Megaport. In April came 16 music fests in this island nation. From fests that were held within city’s usual venues, outdoor fests at sightseeing spots near beachside in order to promote local tourism, to campus events held by college students, no matter what purpose or what scale it might be, music fans in Taiwan are sure pleased to still being able to go to live gigs and music fests.
