The first “Taiwan East Coast Land Arts Festival” was held in 2016. The festival recruits local artists as well as international artists to reside on the East Coast to create art. Also, local craftsmen and artists “open their workshops” to introduce their creative concepts and works to visitors by inviting them inside.
East Coast National Scenic Area website mentions, in 2017, the first Moonlight Sea Concert was held at the landscape-themed outdoor stage of Torik Visitor Center. The Concert discards the typical stage design by adopting the ground as the seats, the sky as the canopy, the sea as the curtain, and the moonlight as the companion. Through music and dance performances of different themes and a handicrafts market, the event provides a visual, auditory, and spiritual experienced.
The first music performance includes artists such as Amis, Misa, Flamenco Dance Company, etc. And on July 23, 24, there will be a performance that includes musicians such as 原始林樂團, Matzka, Sun of Morning, 老王樂隊, etc.
