2018 Kaohsiung Beer Music Festival is a must go party for fans all over the world to come to Kaohsiung and celebrate every year. As it is their 10th year anniversary, many famous pop singers, various beer suppliers and local Kaohsiung restaurants come and rock Kaohsiung Dream Mall. This is my 2nd time coming to this festival, and I can feel that they are doing better and better. However, there are only 3 days, which is just not enough time to have a blast! No matter if you have come or not, let me bring you back to the event day so that you can be more prepared for 2019 Kaohsiung Beer Music Festival!
2018 Kaohsiung Beer Music Festival lasts three days between 2018/7/6-2018/7/8. It is held opposite to Kaohsiung Dream Mall every year. I remember few days before the festival, it was raining heavily everyday in Kaohsiung, so we were really worried about that.
However, God was nice to us during the 3 days, he gave us beautiful sunny days. Even though there were drizzles, but it couldn’t put of the fire of the beer lovers. It was all crowded for the entire 3 days!
You can see a stage for photography and tagging once entered, so friends together can come and mark their visit.
We came here at the 1st and 3rd day within the 3-day event, and we received different colour wristbands!
Since 2018 Kaohsiung Beer Music Festival is their 10th anniversary, 7-11 as their event organizer invited more beer vendors as usual to celebrate this event. They just want everybody to come to Kaohsiung and drink fun!
If you purchased a combo pass, you just need to check-in and receive your gift from the information centre. There are also many 10th year anniversary merchandise products for you to choose, such as black/white t-shirts, bags or towels.
If you purchase Combo A or B, you can receive a ‘Levi’s x Kaohsiung Beer Music Festival’ backpack. This backpack is really cool and their souvenirs are so worth collecting, so there are so many people buying. We can see loads of people wearing this fashionable backpack. I also got one on the last day, making me every excited!
▲7-11 CITY CAFE x 7-11 ibeer生釀啤酒
當日大家都能進入全台唯一CITY CAFE 城市咖啡誌，
People can see the only CITY CAFÉ magazine in Taiwan once they enter the venue. You can take a magazine photo with Kui Lunmei!
I really like this slogan！
Last year 7-11 ibeer was launched, which is the home brand of 7-ELEVEN cooperating with ASAHI. We bought it on the last day, as 4 big bottles and 2 extra dishes cost only $200, which both taste nice and worthy!
People are coming in as time goes later, its very crowded!
The largest beer vendor is Budweiser. It happens to be semi-finals for 2018 World Cup, so the entire venue was decorated as a football court, with live broadcasting at night. There were sales girls wearing red and white sports outfit, they were super hot!
There were special football games for visitors to play with.
大家進去紛紛PUT YOUR HANDS UP，身體跟著音樂一起動次動次！
They have even invited a DJ to warm up the heat, so everybody went in to PUT THEIR HANDS UP, with their body moving along the beats.
During the hot summer, there were plenty of sales girls for beer, so there were also lots of photographers bringing all their equipment to shoot.
Every beer vender gave out free drinking samples, so if you like it, you can buy it. You can get beer way cheaper from vendors outside.
The host is very good at bringing up the heat, and you can also get free gifts after joining a game.
Don’t worry if you get hungry while walking all around. There are so much delicious food around! First of all, its what I shared last time: 支支紅麻辣冷鍋串串. They were so beloved by many artists, and it beat 10 other restaurants in the 6th Kaohsiung Beer Festival Snack Food Contest. There were also all kinds of food boiling in the pot, and you can smell the spices when you approach them.
Lots of visitors came and tried out the food and they loved it! It is the best when it pairs with beer!
The next one is 阿榮海鮮鵝肉. They also won this year! Every dish from them are really good to accompany with beer. You don’t need to go to their store and try out different fried or stir fried food！
These restaurants also won their spots as they were chosen by 3 judges after tasting many delicious restaurants. These are representatives of local street food.
Look at all these skews! They are all seductive! With beer it is super awesome!
Pizza can be made after order, they look really good with Lemon Chicken!
Since this is the 10th year anniversary of of Kaohsiung Beer Festival, they wanted to sincere to the 100-year festival, Oktoberfest. They invited two gorgeous stars 黃鐙輝、曾子余 as their judges to Munich to find traditional German food.
Roasted German pig feet have a history of 400 years. HB beer with pig feet match so much together! The point is, there was also a hot German guy!
▲ KL樂高雄貨櫃市集,Kaohsiung Legend貨櫃市集,
Now I would like to share the most favourable check-in spot, KL樂高雄貨櫃市集, they will launch in Kaohsiung late July. They invited a lot of traditional restaurants to cute containers, just like Lego.
One of them is享溫馨KTV, which was everyone’s youth memory . They served their own signature braised food and fried food. There were lots of people at their store! Almost everyone had salt chicken with cold beer and brought them to the stage to sit down and eat!
There was also老四川麻辣鍋, the favourite of Kaohsiung people. This container stall also brought their signature spicy noodles and spicy braised food. We bought their food on the last day, and the spicy noodles suits really well with plum juice!
The combination of fried chicken and beer is recognized as the best.
The most popular stall was BUS炸雞, there were so many people lining up to buy food. We saw that it was too crowed to fit in, if anyone wants to try out their food, they can go to their market place in August.
Local craft beer浪人酒造 came last year. I tried their beer before, their beer tastes heavy, perhaps men will like them.
There were plenty of seats in the festival to dine. People can order their food and beer and just sit down to enjoy them! You can also drink with strangers, which is really fun!
Not only there were beers, but also other vendors. One of them is Lay’s chips. They installed a large claw machine. You can draw as any bags of chips you want in a limited time. We saw many visitors walking away with 4-5 bags, super awesome!
Fresh new version were stacked together, and you can try out a free cocktail once you check-in. We drank a lot of Sarsi, very great!
They also added a VR game vendor, and they invited gamers to battle, which is very exciting!
Games from different vendors are so fun, but the biggest heat is of course live performances of famous pop singers! There were different singers for 3 different days. We came for the 1st and 3rd day.
There was also a contest for eating biscuits.
The first night we got to here 黃小琥 from Kaohsiung to sing. She was indeed awesome! She sang a lot of songs without stopping, and everyone was enjoying.
The third day 彭佳慧, she sang a lot of old songs. We can feel the rhythm of Kaohsiung, very nice.
There were so many audiences! It is fun to see everyone waving their hands in this beer music festival.
Thanks to all those beer vendors, this 10th year festival is very fun and splendid! After reading my review, are you tempted to join the next year event? Don’t forget to bring your friends along to celebrate
