TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – In order to boost Taiwan’s New Southbound Policy, the
Bureau of Audiovisual and Music Industry Development (BAMID) under the Ministry of Culture has decided to send three Taiwan groups to perform at the Music Matters indie festival that is to be held in Singapore from September 9 to 13.
According to BAMID, the lineup for Taiwan’s performers at the music festival will first feature folk rock group Chang and Lee followed by rock band Elephant Gym and finally hip hop star PoeTeK. The event is one of a kind and the largest of its kind in the region.
The director of BAMID, Hsu Yi-chun, thinks it is a great opportunity for Taiwanese performers to shine and show their talent to the outside world. The organizers will hold a separate panel on September 12 called Gateway to Taiwan which will see an invitation to industry representatives to discuss current situation of the country’s music sector.
