In addition to Taiwanese bands, the other bands will come from Germany, Australia, Japan, Hong Kong, the U.S., Canada, the U.K., the Philippines, and Indonesia.

Tainan Mayor Huang Wei-che (黃偉哲) said this year’s event will also include the performances of some excellent international music performers living in Taiwan.

Event founder Mr.Axel said Tainan May Jam was founded in 2000, and the numbers of audience have increased over the years.

There wasn’t any music festival in Tainan 20 years ago, but since the event was inaugurated, more and more rising independent bands have participated in the music festival, he said, adding that 24 independent music groups will perform in this year’s event.

Mr.Axel encouraged people to picnic, sample the foods, and enjoy nature at the concert events in Hutoupi.

Sinhua Elementary School's lion dance troupe will perform for the event’s opening on May 4. Also on May 4, a temple artistic troupe will perform at 5 p.m., and a drone show involving 50 drones and LED lighting will take place at 7:50 p.m.

In addition, there will be a fair, including international cuisine.

To promote the music festival, Hutoupi will offer half-price admission, NT$40, to music festival ticket holders and people with a May Jam advertisement (print or digital) on May 4 and 5.

During the two-day festival period, there will be a free shuttle bus service at No. 28, Section 2, Beimen Road (北門路二段28號) in downtown Tainan from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m., departing every hour on the hour.
