Look your best for Taiwan’s music festivals

As May arrives, that means summer will soon be here, and with summer comes the various major music festivals throughout Taiwan. Are you ready for the impending musical madness? Music festival fashion is a battleground, and simply knowing the names of the acts on the stage is just not enough. Dressing and accessorizing for the part is key.

Before your Instagram feed gets bombarded by festival posts this summer, let’s take a look at some of the major music festivals taking place in Taiwan and our suggestions for eyewear as you make the rounds.

What are the Major music festivals in Taiwan?

The Gongliao Rock Festival and Spring Scream are two of the originals of the Taiwanese music festival scene, but now there are multiple international events leaving their imprint on Taiwan. This year, there will be 7 major music festivals on the island, including the UK’s Creamfields, the officially christened Ultra Taiwan, and Thailand’s S2O Songkran music festival.

#DANCEPORT電音港

Although Looptopia will not be taking place this year, DancePort will be coming back in style for the first time since 2016. Organized by Spunite of Ultra fame, DancePort will be taking over northern Taiwan in May.

#S2O

Held annually in Thailand, S2O coincides with the Songkran Festival in April. After making its debut in Japan last year, S2O will be making its way to Taiwanese shores in July. Taiwan will become just the 2nd foreign location of the newly expanded S2O, which is also organized by Spunite. 

#Gongliao Rock festival

The Gongliao Rock Festival was first organized in 2000, and it has since become one of the more recognized names among independent music festivals. One of the few music festivals which also plays host to open competition, it originated from a collaboration between Taiwan Colors Music and the New Taipei City government that aimed to create a Woodstock-like event in Taiwan. This free outdoor event on the beaches of Gongliao is a major attraction for music creators, many of whom have used the festival competition as a springboard to prominence in the independent music scene.

At the festival, hair and makeup is no less important than the way you dress or accessorize.
