It allows Taiwanese people to see and hear music from various parts of the world, thus expanding the size of the world music audience.
Exchange and Cooperation Among Music from Different Nations
The World Music Festival @ Taiwan is a platform that connects Taiwan’s unique music forms to the international stage, promoting Taiwanese performers abroad while introducing equally unique music from overseas, allowing for interaction in a variety of aspects.

The numerous and brilliant shows and activities at the event include performances by Taiwanese and overseas groups, networking with international curators, in-depth lectures by speakers from abroad, dance workshops held by musicians, and three bazaars of over 100 stalls peddling an array of food, goods, and fun from various countries.
