— WOMADelaide Director
I was fortunate to be able to travel to Taipei to the “World Music Festival @ Taiwan” in 2017 to experience the broadest range of work from Taiwan and the region. It was a very productive and interesting visit which enabled us to ultimately bring the Taiwu Ancient Ballads Troupe to WOMADelaide and WOMAD New Zealand in 2019.
The festival presented a broad range of artists from Taiwan but also internationally and the range of community or audience participation and workshops was impressive. I would certainly recommend the festival to audiences and festival programmers alike.

The popular World Music Festival, Taipei, Taiwan is a truly cultural discovery for each world music addict from all the world is located in the beautiful outdoor environment and provides a truly harmonious family entertainment experience.

Beyond the rich selection of high-class international artists, it was an also true revelation to learn about and encounter the culture and native sounds by the indigenous people rooted for centuries on the Island of Taiwan.

I had the opportunity to be invited to the first ever Taiwan World Music Festival to share my experience in organizing the Rainforest World Music Festival. I was impressed by its organization especially the layout of the festival venue which was well planned, the festival goers were well behaved, making the festival a fun filled event for the whole family. I understand that the festival is getting better each year with more international performers. Do experience this festival when it happens next.

“World Music Festival @ Taiwan” is very pretty world music festival in Asia and also WMF@TW has a special showcase of Taiwanese unique artists and bands. I'm sure if you go to WMF@TW, you can meet this like pretty good music and lovely people.

The Taiwan World Music Festival is highly crucial for me since it has particularly become a meeting ground for musicians from across Asia-Pacific. The program was well structured and presented high quality of music. As a music festival director myself, I was fortunate to be able to attend the World Music Festival @ Taiwan. Keep up the good works. The festival must go on!

My visit to “World Music Festival @ Taiwan” in Taipei was one of magical discovery and professional and cultural enrichment. From the music and performers presented to the new colleagues and friends with whom I met and engaged with there, to old colleagues with whom I reunited, my entire visit was memorable, fun, educational and rewarding!

The festival is incredibly well run and programmed from all perspectives including technical, musical curation, street art and performance, presentations and workshops, audience engagement, and the food and craft bazaar.

"At the WMF venue in 2017, organic products such as incense and coffee had been sold, which made me feel that the importance of this festival was not only music but also the environment of clothing, food, housing and transportation which is the central concept of Wind Music production. I expect that I can refine the organic goodness of Taiwan by the people of the city and disseminate it overseas. "
