Taipei Lantern Fest to Bring ‘World Order’ to Ximending

The Department of Information and Tourism (TPEDOIT) announced that the Japanese band WORLD ORDER will be performing at the opening event of 2017 Taipei Lantern Festival on February 4 and 5.

Members of the band relayed their New Year greetings in Chinese on video to promote their upcoming appearance at Ximending:

TPEDOIT Commissioner Chien Yu-yen noted that the band, which has been connecting with cities around the world since its birth, will help market Taipei and allow the world to see Taiwan through its performances. Since WORLD ORDER appeared in a promotional film for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IDAlZ7PDMDU), she believes that inviting the group to perform in Taipei will also serve to build up momentum for the 2017 Taipei Universiade.

WORLD ORDER, the Japanese electronic music band recognized for its choreographed robotic movements by members dressed in suits, is known for surprising their audience with the members’ impromptu and amusing performances. Their music videos often feature iconic landmarks of cities around the world. The show at the lantern festival will place Taipei on their “world order” map, incorporating images from the city’s west district.

According to the Department of Transportation, traffic control measures will be implemented in Ximending between 4 PM and 8:30 PM on February 4, the day of the opening ceremony. Parts of Chengdu Road and Hanzhong Street will be closed. Visitors are advised to take public transportation to the exhibition areas—located between MRT Beimen and Ximen stations.
