From what the daily data shows, Taiwan is basically COVID-free since April. As reported by CNN the winning formula of Taiwan was to act quickly since the first few cases discovered on the island.

Taiwan has blocked access to the country for tourism and people on arrival must quarantine for 14 days. These restrictions summed with the uncertainty of the future situation in Europe and America will probably bring only local audiences to the Ultra Taiwan festival.

Information about possible worldwide live stream via YouTube has yet to be announced.

In the meantime, you can save your ticket from the Ultra Taiwan official website.
