Grand Opening of the "2022 Penghu Music Festival" – Scintillating Penghu Bay!
The "2022 Penghu Music Festival" kicked off at the Guanyinting Recreation Area on 13th August amidst a lively, buzzing atmosphere. A plethora of promotions was also unveiled to generate exciting opportunities and a boom in domestic tourism.
Organized by the Penghu National Scenic Area Administration, the "2022 Penghu Music Festival" brought Penghu's tourism, delicacies, accommodation, travel, retail, local transport industries, as well international marketing of Penghu’s local produce together under one event. Penghu’s tourism market is, at present, showing signs of recovery, with hotel booking rates exceeding 70%. Accommodation is especially sought after during the Music Festival’s 8 concerts, with internal demand for domestic tourism being the most stable market for such events.
Unlike previous light festivals in Penghu, this year's "Penghu Music Festival" utilizes artworks such as projection mapping and art light installations which are complemented by cutting-edge technology to create an interactive, high-tech light art presentation which illuminates Penghu's coastline. Moreover, the much-awaited concert features an exciting lineup of artists including ELLA and Nine One One performing at the opening concert, with Hebe Tien and Accusefive headlining the closing concert. 16 groups of artists, including 831, Eve Ai, and Shi Shi will take to the stage during the thematic concerts to liven up the Penghu weekends and leave visitors with unforgettable memories. As you explore Penghu deeper, you may discover surprises everywhere. In conjunction with the Mid-Autumn Festival long weekend which starts from 9th September , the Guanyinting Recreation Area in Penghu will hold a "Illuminated Kite" performance where visitors can catch a glimpse of these mammoth illuminated kites!
Promotional efforts for the "2022 Penghu Music Festival" are inspired by the "Penghu Seasons Tour" travel initiative.
