The accepted band list is up here: http://www.springscream.com/

If you have signed up and have been accepted, then you should have gotten an email about the band members getting permits. I am going to do this process tonight, so I can field any questions anyone has.

Very glad to see this:
If you are married to a Taiwanese national AND have a valid marriage ARC you do not need to apply for the permit.

The govt making P-ARC or even work ARC holders apply for a performance permit is ridiculous though, it's not as if Springscream is a paid show. :loco:

It's not a paid show? But my friend is buying a one-night ticket for me for NT990?

Oh you have to pay to get in, it's the steep ticket prices and the long list of corporate sponsors that mean that the sound crews get paid, and the vendors get paid, and the land owners get paid, and the advertising and promotion companies get paid, and the transport companies get paid, and the event organizers *certainly* get paid, but the bands which are by and large the sole reason thousands of people pay NT$1k per day to be there in the first place, get paid zero, zip, nadda... That's what I meant by unpaid show...

And just as a further kick in the balls with 4 days to go before the festival begins, the organisers have still not got their act together enough to release a band performance schedule so hundreds of musicians have no way to confirm their travel and accommodation plans... This will be the last Springscream we play and I've spoken with folks from several other bands that feel the same way, the smarter ones amongst us didn't even bother applying this year...

So I want to go to Spring Scream but I'm having a lot of trouble figuring out what is the best way to get there. Unfortunately I work on Saturday so I can't go until that afternoon/evening. Everyone else I know is going on Friday so I can't figure out what's the best way for me to make it there fast. Any suggestions? HSR? Bus? Train?

Play it once, shame on them. Play it twice, shame on you. I've played it twice. :oops: Never again, though!
but the bands which are by and large the sole reason thousands of people pay NT$1k per day to be there in the first place, get paid zero, zip, nadda... That's what I meant by unpaid show...

But... but... just THINK of the free "publicity!" :roflmao: (Not free, of course -- it costs a good chunk of change to schlep all the way down there with a band and gear, hotels, meals, etc.).
Four days and you have noplace booked? Damn! If I were you I just wouldn't bother showing up. If they can't get their act together, why should you? You're doing THEM the favour, don't forget. :roll: That is fucking shameful!

Getting to spring scream:

HSR to Kaohsiung (Tsoying) and taxi to Spring Scream sight. About NT$400-500 per person and just 90 minutes. A helluva better ride than the bus and about the same price.
Taxis are available at the HSR station.

Late schedule release:

yeah, I've always wondered about this and it seems to happen every year. i guess releasing the schedule late means that no one has time to complain about a crummy time slot!

+1....invest the money in a trip to Fuji Rock where you can see the likes of Muse, Massive Attack and, ahem, Trombone Shorty...
