Ready to hit the water for some summer fun? New Taipei City is putting on the River and Ocean Music Festival this summer, combining for the first time the Fisherman Stage Music Paradise with the Ho-Hai-Yan Gongliao Rock Festival. The former took place at the city’s Fisherman’s Wharf by the Tamsui River between July 27 and Aug. 25, while the latter begins today and runs until Sunday at Fulong Beach by the Pacific Ocean.

As it enters its 19th year, the Ho-Hai-Yan Festival is now the largest music festival in Taiwan. This year, a total of 87 artists or groups are set to rock the beach. Today’s lineup includes 831, Trash, MJ116 and various artists from home and abroad.

The indie music contest is to take place tomorrow, followed by a joint performance of singer Matzka and groups Boxing and Totem. More bands, including Your Woman Sleep with Others and Tizzy Bac will perform on Sunday, and singer Greeny Wu will rock the stage for the finale at 9:05pm.
