Mayor Attends Live House Event as Warm-up for Taipei Azalea Festival

Following the success of the city’s first Azalea Festival and concurrent Live House events in 2017, this year’s Azalea Festival will collaborate with Live House again to celebrate the beauty of blooms and energy of music.
As a warm-up for the one-month-long Azalea Festival starting on March 14, the corresponding Live House events have kicked off on March 9 to enrich visitors’ experience.
Mayor Ko Wen-je made an appearance at Live House to show his support for independent music. He thanked the public’s fervent participation in the event and promised to boost the city’s momentum for the development of music.
Ko noted that the performance hall at Taipei Music Center will soon be completed. The facility will be Taiwan’s first mid-to-large sized venue dedicated for pop music and can accommodate 5,000 people. This is great news for the city’s music enthusiasts! Besides that, with the completion of the Pop Music Industry Park slated for mid-2019, there will be four additional venues of varying sizes for hosting Live House performances.
He added that these facilities will provide venues for performances by independent musicians, help related business to operate, and allow the public to enjoy cultural and arts events at affordable expenses.
