As the Ho-Hai-Yan Gongliao Rock Festival enters its seventeenth year, seventeen famous artists will gather here together to play music and enjoy the festival.
The 2017 “Seventeenth Festival, We Rock Together!” Ho-Hai-Yan Gongliao Rock Festival will be held from Aug. 04 to Aug. 06 at Fulong Beach, New Taipei City. In addition to the Ho-Hai-Yan Indie Music Awards which are held every year, we are also inviting many outstanding indie bands to participate in the festival and attract more rock fans and visitors to enjoy great performances. This year, the organizer has especially invited seventeen famous artists to perform and compete on stage as a highlight of the festival.

The Return to Youth and the Original Intention of Creating Music in the Seventeenth Festival!

Mr. Chen, Kuo-Chun, the Head of the Tourism and Travel Department of the New Taipei City Government, says that the Ho-Hai-Yan Indie Music Awards provides indie bands with the opportunity to showcase their musical talents. This opportunity not only brings the energy to local bands in Taiwan, but it also inspires music artists to create more diversified and multicultural songs. Therefore, the Ho-Hai-Yan Gongliao Rock Festival can be regarded as one of the most significant music events in Taiwan. In its seventeenth year, we hope this festival will symbolize the return to youth, to be seventeen years old again, and also to remember the original intention of creating music. We expect the Ho-Hai-Yan Gongliao Rock Festival to express the spirit of the next generation of rock music. Hushen, the chair of our judges and also the director of Quarterback, says the judges love getting many bands of diverse styles to participate in the festival. They also spend a lot of time choosing thirty bands for the preliminary rounds, and are pleased to see such a large amount of songs created and composed by the younger generations. We also invited sixteen band representatives from the past sixteen years to attend a press conference to help welcome the festival into its seventeenth year. We hope a lot of outstanding music artists are chosen to perform in the preliminary rounds.

There are 141 bands participating in the Ho-Hai-Yan Indie Music Awards this year, and we have invited professional music artists and reviewers to be our judges in the primary rounds. Thirty bands will be selected to participate in the preliminary rounds, which will be held at The Wall Live House, Gongguan, on July 1, Riverside Live House on July 2, and San-Ying Art Village on July 9. The final top ten bands will be chosen again to participate in the Ho-Hai-Yan Music Awards. Admissions for the three preliminary rounds are free, and all rock fans are welcome to join the fun. Seventeen famous artists will also be there to witness the crucial moment.

As shown with the theme of the festival this year, “Seventeenth Festival, We Rock Together!” the 2017 Ho-Hai-Yan Gongliao Rock Festival has organized activities for the three days for participants to interact and share and compare their experiences.
