TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — After a three-year hiatus due to the pandemic, Earthfest is returning July 21-24 for three days of music, dancing, camping, and arts and crafts.

A fixture of Taiwan's music festival scene for more than a decade, Earthfest has become a nexus for music lovers, DJs, creatives, and their families and friends to gather and unplug out in Mother Nature. This year, over 100 artists will drop beats across a record four stages, surrounded by vibrant installations of all shapes and sizes.

Traditionally focused on underground electronic genres such as psy trance, techno, and drum 'n' bass, this year's lineup will see live music, performance artists, and more DJ collaborations than ever before. The event will also boast a large food and arts and crafts market.

Earthfest will take place at a campground about 23 kilometers south of Miaoli City in Sanyi Township. Campers can either bring their own tent or rent one for NT$1,300 per night. Cabins are available for rent as well.

Asked if the event might be affected by the pandemic situation, Marketing Director Paul Duffy said Earthfest 2022 will "definitely happen, unless the government cancels it or if a very high number of people cancel tickets, which hasn't happened."

Until June 5, a three-day pass is NT$3,300 and a two-day pass is NT$2,800. This will increase to NT$3,800 and NT$3,300, respectively, from June 10-17. Three-day passes will cost NT$4,500 per person at the door.
