The 7-Eleven Kaohsiung Beer Rock Festival is taking place at the plaza across the Dream Mall in Kaohsiung from today to Sunday. As the three-day event enters its 11th year, the organizer has invited 17 artists or groups to perform at the festival, held to boost local tourism and beer sales at the beginning of each summer vacation.

Hit Taiwanese singers Rainie Yang and Greeny Wu will be perform in the finales of the shows for today and Sunday, respectively, and K-pop star Hyuna will be performing in the finale for tomorrow’s show. Other performers include rock band 831, singers Tiger Huang, Andrew Tan and more. There is an alcohol ban for those under the age of 18 at all three concerts.

This year’s Wake Up Festival will take place from today to Sunday in Chiayi City. Founded by a group of high school students seeking performance opportunities in 2009, the festival, which features dozens of artists, has over the past decade turned into the city’s biggest music event.
