The ‘Esketit’ rapper’s participation was announced on July 1 following the announcement of several other electronic music acts from all over the world including Dutch DJ duo Yellow Claw, Germany’s Le Shuuk and Spain’s Prophecy. The artists will be joining Lil Pump at the Dajia Riverside Park in Zhongshan District, Taipei City this August 27 and 28, with a total of 100 acts to be announced.

Festival-goers will have to abide by several COVID-19 safety measures, including mandatory face masks and a temperature check at the door. Those who register a forehead temperature higher than 37.5 degrees Celsius will be turned away.
First held in Thailand in 2015, the S2O Songkran Music Festival has hosted artists like Fatboy Slim, Steve Aoki, Tiësto and more during the three-day festivities that are held in conjunction with the five-day Thai New Year holiday in April 12 to 16 every year. The S2O Songkran Music Festival has since held editions of the festival in South Korea and Japan.
Lil Pump most recently released his third studio album back in December 2021, a collaborative effort with producer and rapper Ronny J titled ‘No Name’. The album was dropped with little to no fanfare, but did include the single ‘Racks to The Ceiling’ with Canadian rapper Tory Lanez, which Lil Pump had released earlier that year in August.
The current lineup for the 2022 Taiwan S2O Songkran Music Festival is:
