HAAi, Simo Cell and more global names decorate FINAL Taipei's April line-up

One of Taipei’s most beloved clubs FINAL marks a new chapter for the space with a new music director, starting off with a slew of impressive international artists.

Throughout April, FINAL has curated a diverse line-up featuring artists spanning various styles, sizes, and flavours. Among them are global names such as ZULI, upsammy, and Simo Cell.

Previously, FINAL, along with local event organisers PURE G, created the avant-garde eel Festival hosting Ben UFO, Tzusing, Meuko! Meuko! and more.

A stand-out event in the series would be the groundbreaking HAAi, who was chosen to feature in Mixmag’s first-ever digital cover. She’ll be supported by Taiwan’s Sulk.

Another one to look out for is the pop-up from Cakeshop Seoul, an iconic club that’s been vital in the Korean underground, and whose eighth-anniversary compilation was named one of Mixmag’s top albums of 2021.

When asked about the future of FINAL, the venue's new music director XIИ mentions: “FINAL has been dedicated to promoting forward-thinking electronic music and cutting-edge aesthetics. Over the past five years, it has already established a unique aesthetic.”
