The Taichung International Food and Music Festival 2011

The Compass Taichung International Food and Music Festival is a yearly event held in the summer in Taichung City. This year was the 8th year the event has been run and was yet again a great success. Promoting the aims and achievement of the Compass magazine and Taichung City the event was packed with non-stop live music and over 50 food/drink vendors. The Festival appeals to residents from all backgrounds, nationalities and ages, as well as attracting residents from other parts of Taiwan. Organized by the Compass magazine and sponsored by Taiwan Beer and Costco, it hosted 16 of Taiwan's top bands and musicians such as 2 acres Plowed, The Hand Knife Club, Zion Express and The Ever So Friendlies amongst many others. Many of the finest restaurants, pubs, hotels and retailers held a booth selling some of their specialties.  Included in these were The Londoner, Fubar, PJ's, Mr India, Oldies Frank's Hotdogs and numerous others. The event has a great turn out every year as it is one of the few enjoyable festivals in Taiwan and this year was no exception with big crowds attending on both days.
