20120715 貢寮海洋音樂祭 13th Hohaiyan Rock Festival

I've read quite a bit about the annual summer Hohaiyan Gongliao Rock Festival 國際海洋音樂祭 held in Fulong beach and had been looking forward to watch Mayday's performance at this much talked about music festival. 

I'm no stranger to Fulong, having visited here on several occasion, though nothing had braced me for the sea of people on festival day. I've never seen Fulong this crowded.

Fulong is a little over an hour train ride from Taipei and during the festival, additional trains were added to ferry the hundreds of thousands of festival & beach goers. Despite the additional trains, all platforms and trains were packed like sardines !

Many turned up early to the beach - despite the scorching summer heat, thankfully Fulong's temperature was slightly cooler than Taipei.
