On July 1st, the Quemoy International Music Festival entered its sixth session, bringing the whole island into its festive crest. Evening performances were led off by the Kinmen girl “Cheshire Cat,” and followed by JAYRoll, Shen Huaiyi and Dai Siaohuei. They brought to the audience excellent and varied performances including hip-hop, folk songs, and art songs. The island’s charm spread with the summer night’s breeze. The wonderful performances earned endless screams and applauses from audiences, bringing the mood to a climax.
Starting from yesterday (the 19th ) afternoon, a steady influx of people flowed into the waters off Houhu Beach. On the beach, beautiful parasols and comfortable loungers were much appreciated by visitors. Everywhere is crowded with people.
In the evening, the Kinmen girl “Cheshire Cat” spearheaded the performances by singing a number of Chinese and Japanese songs. Cheshire Cat is a sing-a-song writer whose original music is popular across Taiwan and Japan. She released a personal album of her self-composed songs last year. She did an amazing job singing Japanese songs. The audience offstage frequently applauded, offering support and encouragement for this girl who is the pride of Kinmen.
As the soft music flowed along in the cool sea breeze, the mood on and off stage was elevated with every song.
Then "JAYRoll", Shen Huaiyi and Dai Siaohuei came on stage one by one, bringing to the audience excellent and varied performances including hip-hop, folk songs, and art songs. The island’s charm spread with the summer night’s breeze. Each group of performers exhibited great live singing skills. The audience screamed and applauded constantly. This was complemented by the M.C. Chen Yanli’s wonderful presentation and the public’s interaction and gift exchange, which brought the audience to the height of mood.
Every day during the two-month International Music Festival, Houhu Beach Park is jazzed up with an abundance of activities, including a wide variety of food stalls, and the refreshing water slide. People of all ages are drawn to enjoy the fun together. The Kinmen County Government welcomes everyone to come and have fun in the sea breeze at Houhu Beach Park during the summer vacation. Tour operators are also welcomed to bring tourists to enjoy Kinmen’s wonderful summer nights.
Organizers call on citizens and tourists coming to Houhu Beach Park to slow down after entering Donghu Road and follow the guidance of on-site police officers in order to maintain traffic order and safety.
In order to coordinate with the series of activities for the clam season on July 22nd, the International Music Festival performances for that Saturday (July 22nd) are canceled. Organizers remind tourists and the public that the beach water slide, food stalls, surrounding leisure and recreational facilities and more are always present every day at Houhu Beach Park. Everyone is welcomed, during holidays or any other time, to come cool off at Houhu Beach Park.
