For over 20 years, the youth of Taiwan have flocked to Kenting for a long weekend of music, drinks and partying. Spring Break on the Beach has made this tradition their  over the last 5 years, drawing over 10,000 partygoers each year now. 

Taiwan’s growing interest in beach culture has fueled the festival’s rise and made it consistently one of the most memorable parties of the year.


The 2018 夏都春宴 Spring Break on the Beach will again take place  at Kenting’s only 5 star Beach resort, Chateau 墾丁夏都沙灘酒店 from Friday, April 6th and Saturday, April 7th, 2018.  Gates open at 2pm.


Spring Breakers will be able to enjoy two days at the most beautiful Beach resort in Taiwan, organized sports, world class sound and lighting, international and local performers, and three hours of open bar.
To work off the alcohol, daytime events will include ultimate frisbee, beach soccer, American football, volleyball and a Brazilian Jiu-jitsu exhibition.

During the day DJs will be dropping Latin, hip hop, reggae and other beach jams. Guests can swim in one of several swimming pools overlooking the beach and enjoy an open bar serving unlimited beer and cocktails from 3pm to 6pm both days.


Open bar from 3-6 pm each day. This is going to get messy…


After the sun goes down, the energy will rise and DJs and dancers will take the party up a notch. This year, the organizers are bringing sexy DJ B Jones, a queenpin of Ibiza, the original party island.

Miss Jones has held residencies at Ibiza’s legendary Pacha club as well as Mambo, KM5, Nassau Beach Club, Blue Marlin and Privilege and will treat the crowd to that Balearic Ibiza spirit still relatively unknown to Taiwan.

Supporting the rest 2018's festival line-up  are more than 50 local and international performers, including ICRT guys DJ Chamber and Famous, Elektro Taipei’s Double G, Triangle Taipei’s DJ Cross Cutz, 18TC’s Alex36, Brickyard resident international lady of mystery, DJ MoneyDick, Taipei's Mr. Latino DJ Cola, and many others.


You have a chance to be part of the entertainment too. Each night at 8pm, the notorious Bikini Dance Off gives participants, both male and female, 30 seconds to impress the crowd. The winner receives a cash prize of NT$10,000. Contestants are reminded not to break Taiwan’s public decency laws in their their quest for gold. Surprisingly, there has been a male winner before!
