The 2019 Creative Expo Taiwan is taking place at the Huashan 1914 Creative Park and several cultural venues in Taipei between April 24 and May 5. To mark the 12-day expo, the still under construction Taipei Music Center held a test concert featuring Golden Melody Award winning band EggPlantEgg and various artists on Saturday.

The Taipei Music Center is divided into three parts, including the 6,000-capacity Performance Hall, the Pop Music Culture Hall and the Industrial Hall. The concert was also held to perform tests on the functions of the equipment. When the center starts trial operations in the fourth quarter of the year, it is set to become a new landmark in the city’s Nangang District.

Meanwhile, the Taipei City Government’s Department of Cultural Affairs announced last week that the Taipei Performing Arts Center in Shilin District will finally open in 2022 after years of delay. The long-awaited sphere-shaped theater complex with three auditoria is designed by Pritzker Prize winning architect Rem Koolhaas.
