Formoz Festival 2008: Don't wanna say goodbye

Here is wikipedia's explanation of the annual Formoz Festival:

The annual Formoz Festival, Spring Scream, and Gung-liao Ho-hai-yan Rock Festival are representative gatherings within Taiwan's indie scene. Of these, Formoz Festival is notable for its international draw.

Facing the threat of typhoon Phoenix, lots of people still decided to attend the Formoz Festival 2008. One of them was Stanley:


Typhoon is coming, but we must go to Formoz Festival!! This is what we call “passion”!

People were eager to attend because there won't be Formoz Festival in the coming year. The Children's Recreation Center that has been chosen for holding Formoz Festival for several years will not be available next year, and it is not easy to find a proper location in a short time.

Issadamor appealed to friends for attending the event.


Formoz Festival is finally coming! The organizers said there will be no Formoz Festival next year. Therefore, we cannot miss Formoz Festival this year!!

Iron reminded that there was a stage devoted to human right.


Under the hot sun, these NGO fellows were working hard to set up their tables…The most touching moment was at eight, when the participants celebrated a Chinese human right fighter, Hu-Jia‘s birthday with accompaniment played by OpenEye.

We will not see Formoz Festival next year. However, many of us are looking forward to see another Formoz Festival in the near future. One of the organizers, Carol, said,


Take care of yourself, and take care of Formoz Festival for me, ok? I will see you in the future.
