The annual Hohaiyan Rock Festival started in 2000 , growing from a three-day event to a very impressive five-day jam.
There's a great line-up which mixes some of Taiwan's best rock (and folk/pop/metal/reggae/punk) bands and a bunch of top international acts, and organizers are hoping to bring over a million music fans to Fulong Beach.
