Nice! Time to go rub it in my friends’ faces in Canada.

Dammit Tango, another difficult topic to save! But it is saved!

Only $3200 for a one day pass? Is it a week long party?

Before covid i went to a 3 day music festival in kenting i think it was spring break but not the show that one person came to watch that they moved to the middle of nowhere…
The pre china sickness kenting beach party i went to was boasting 10,000 people a day to attend, and about 500 came for 3 days
Total flop, but there was free beer for 2 hours a day ( unfortunately they didnt bring enough ice) warm beer… we drank a shit load of warm beer to deal with the sadness.
90% of the big djs canceled when they saw ticket sales… so it was super weak .

We saw 2 house music dj that were ok,But they were not on a main stage …
I felt sorry for the promoters or promoter , one guy was really nice . It was easy to talk with the English speaker when it was just 20-30 standing around

I vowed to never go to a taiwan dj party again…

will this show be different? Is taiwan hungry ?
Curious to hear what happens there

Ultra does fairly well in Taipei and they keep returning. Other global ones held at Dajia Riverside park do OK but every now and then a flop or partial flop and hard to predict. Is Taiwan.

The last big one S20 music festival early September was pretty crowded and huge stage.

Ok , its a one day event? If so does that include alcohol?

I was there last year. It’s a huge production and a lot of fun. And it will be mobbed. All the ABC TBA types love this shit.

Agreed. To my knowledge, there’s not much to do this year for the EDM scene.

Maybe a good thing as most of my EDM going friends all have turned their money that they would throw at EDM concerts to domestic nature trips.

No way masks will be worn after entry.

Haha, seriously? They want people coming?

In this article everyone wear mask , however for an open-air concert like Ultra Festival could be different…

Yeah but that was a completely lame mandopop concert. I couldn’t imagine going to an EDM event and wearing a mask. Certainly the one three weeks ago there was no masks in sight. Same with the punk festival I was at last month.

All these huge gatherings and still no increase to the corona count though. The regulation has to be there, but I guess it’s up to the people whether they want to wear them.

Knowing the EDM crowd, they’ll bedazzle or figure out a way to install LEDs on their masks.

There is no virus. How do we catch a virus if no one has it…

While Chuang and Yu did not name the visitors who broke quarantine, the event’s official website lists four DJs – Kayzo, Vini Vici, Slander and Alesso – who it said were invited to Taiwan to perform at the concert.

Pocket change for giant global djs

seems the same organizer has repeatably postponed another event and also repeatedly failed to refund ticket holders after promising to repay.

i think basic ticket price was like 4000+ with no “headliner” acts even announced…
brilliant business plan sell overpriced tickets for a non-existent event and then use loopholes to keep the cash.

there is a lot of talk about it on ppt and fb about how unhappy kids are about shady companies taking money for tickets.
