EDM fans, listen up! The time has come for you to purge your schedules, book your flights, and ready your festive souls. You’re about to have the biggest blast this April at Taiwan’s entertainment wonderland LOOPTOPIA-- Formosa’s very own multi-day multi-stage event-- so brace yourselves for this year’s most anticipated performances, in the flesh!
Proudly hosted by local entertainment giant LOOP, LOOPTOPIA will feature over 40 international artists and 20 regional talents. The event will showcase the full spectrum of electronic music to cater for all: EDM, tropical house, trance, progressive house, psytrance, trap, dubstep, hardstyle, and bass music.
Crowned champion on DJ Mag’s Top 100 DJs for 2016, EDM superstar Martin Garrix will hit the stage with previous No.1s, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and prodigy MATTN. The titans are joined by the prominent trance innovator Markus Schulz and internationally acclaimed Egyptian trance group Aly & Fila, leading hardstyle DJ and producer Brennan Heart and epic Dutch guys Yellow Claw, established trance tastemaker Ben Nicky, bass music heavyweight NGHTMRE, and Belgian jumpstyle and hardstyle sensation Coone. Dutch DJ Mark Sixma is returning stronger than ever, as well as Miami bass duo G.T.A., the iconic trio Kris Kross Amsterdam, Hardwell’s protege Dyro, the talented Dutch DJ Dante Klein, Holland’s fans’ favorite trio Dirtcaps, the forward-thinking Montreal-based DJ Snails, and the daring Dutch DJ Wildstylez. Phase 1 will feature other big names such as KSHMR, Tony Junior, Wiwek, Orjan Nilsen, and Charming Horses.
Taoyuan Pushin Ranch will be home to three colourful performance areas and numerous interactive art installations, massages, yoga, and aboriginal arts centre. The site of LOOPTOPIA proudly presents not only their beautiful spans of forests and lakes, but facilities for on-site camping, BBQ, cabins, and showers. The island’s tastiest restaurants will bring to the table their most exquisite tastes, and there’ll be food carts featuring modern western snacks, Taiwanese night market fare, and traditional tribal roasts. Travellers will be thrilled to hear that the site is only 10 minutes from Taoyuan International Airport, and 30 minutes from Central Taipei.
Taiwan has always been underrated as a music destination. Now is as good a time as any to remind all EDM fans in Hong Kong: you won't find a better weekender than LOOPTOPIA come spring. If you're stranded elsewhere, always remember that Taiwan is one flight from almost anywhere from Asia. Be sure to join this year’s EDM paradise on April 8 and 9 at Taiwan’s exclusive LOOPTOPIA!
