Tainan May Jam was founded by artist musician Axel Schunn in 2000 and continues to grow every year. May Jam still adheres to its simple tenets of creativity, musicianship and the love for music and is an important music festival in Taiwan for independent bands; as Axel says, “It’s all for music !”

The light was just getting good and it was cooling down enough for the crowds to start arriving when my son was stung in the arm and leg by something — possibly a hornet — so we made a quick exit because he has had allergic reactions to stings.
