TAIPEI (Taiwan News)--The free “Ho Ping Island Land Music Festival” will take place at 5 p.m. on August 5 in the surroundings of breathtaking landscapes of coastal erosion in Ho Ping Island Park in Taiwan’s northern port city of Keelung.

The music festival is organized by the North Coast & Guanyinshan National Scenic Area (NCGNSA), and there will be no entrance fee.

The performers include Light Grass Forest Band, Postman Singer: Da Lu Si, Gao Lei Ya, Jiang Zhi Feng, Fu Qiong Yin, Liao Shi Xian, and Cross-College Performers from Chong You Technology University as well as National Ocean University, according to the NCGNSA.

“All visitors are more than welcome to come to Ho Ping Island to enjoy the music and the festival atmosphere in the summer night near the shore,” the organizer said.

To encourage the public to take public transportation, the organizer will arrange free shuttle buses to transport visitors from Keelung train station to the music festival venue, and a small gift will be given away to anyone who takes the shuttle bus from the train station.

On August 5, four free parking lots at nearby National Ocean University and tourist fish market will be open for people who drive, and free shuttle buses will also be provided to transport visitors from the parking lots to the festival venue, according the NCGNSA.

In conjunction with the festival, works of “Beautiful Keelung Ho Ping Island” Photography Contest winners will also be exhibited during the festival at the Ancient Military Barrack Area Floor One inside the Ho Ping Island Park.

The Ho Ping Island is connected to Keelung mainland with the Heping Bridge. The park consists of rocks with special shapes due to longtime wave and wind erosion.
