Four Road to Ultra: Taiwan headliners fined for violating quarantine protocol
Four DJs tapped to play Road to Ultra: Taiwan’s 2020, single-day installment have been fined NT$10,000 ($351 USD) for violating quarantine protocol under Article 58 of the Communicable Disease Control Act, according to the Central Epidemic Command Center. The four acts are reported to have “met in a common area to eat and rehearse for their show,” CECC spokesman Chuang Jen-hsiang said during a press briefing held in Taipei.
The action flouted the mandatory 14-day quarantine that the visiting talents were expected to observe within their respective rooms at the quarantine facility per Taiwan’s “one room per person” rule for quarantine. The visiting DJs’ quarantine period was in effect from October 28, the date of the DJs’ arrival, to November 12. Road to Ultra: Taiwan was held on November 14.
The offending incident came to light after a video that depicted the four DJs gathered together indoors, sans masks, was published on social media, Chuang Jen-hsiang said. Each of the four DJs is expected to pay the fine within seven days of receiving the penalty notice; individuals who fail to pay will see their case transferred to the control of the Administrative Enforcement Agency.
Officials have not specifically named the four DJs fined for breaking quarantine, but Road to Ultra: Taiwan notably featured four headliners totaling five DJs: Alesso, Kayzo, SLANDER, and Vini Vici. Whereas just one of Vini Vici’s two constituents (Aviram Sahari and Matan Kadosh) guested at Road to Ultra: Taiwan, both Derek Andersen and Scott Land of SLANDER appeared.
Taiwanese producers DJ Junior, DJ Pei, and Ray Ray provided regional support. Relive Alesso, SLANDER, Vini Vici, and Kayzo’s momentous sets from Road to Ultra: Taiwan here.
