Nangang district, well-known as “Black County” in the post war era, bristled with various plants and factories in the past time. What reform can be introduced in Nangang in the 21st century from a heavily industrialised black county? URS13 Revived Vanguard provides a dreamland of collective wishes. It was a tinplate cap factory of Taiwan Tobacco and Liquor Cooperation and now a URS located in Nangang district and serves as an exchange site for urban regeneration promotion. Through the form of music and sound, a series of events are held in URS13 not only to express the uniqueness of Chinese music but also to advertise Nangang’s local characteristics. On September 15th, 2012, Black Town Music Festival will be held in URS13. More than 10 bands are invited to share their lifestyle with their performances.

Blacktown Music Festival 

The Festival located in an abandoned Bottle Cap Factory in Nangang, Taipei. The town was well-known as “Black Town” in the post war era, bristled with various heavy industrial plants and factories in the past time – hance, the term "Dirty Hands". We choose an ordinary cheap industrial glove to be the main visual of the festival representing the industrial location and its working class inhabitants.
