Notes: 

From the OFF Festival's book program, written by Artur Rojek, Art Director:

A few days after the official announcement that Slowdive would be performing this year, Rachel Goswell sent us a message: "So excited to be coming over!". Some of us had to sit down when we read that. If you're a fan of Slowdive, you know what I'm talking about. This is one of the biggest bands in the history of our festival. Their music has been the soundtrack to a major part of my life, and I'm sure I'm not alone in this. They inspired many people in my home-town to start bands, or even devote their entire lives to music.

Notes: 

The line-up remained secret until the day, but rumors about Slowdive playing (due the flyer design and the scheduled concert next day at Village Underground) circulated in the Web weeks before. This was the first Slowdive concert in 20 years, after their show in Toronto, on May 21st, 1994.

From an interview with Nick Chaplin:

the gig was almost unreal, it was a tiny stage and most of the people in the audience were our friends! So it just felt like we’d turned up and were playing at a private party for a bit of fun. There was literally not enough room for us all on stage, so I had to go right at the front, in the middle, otherwise I was clashing guitars with Neil the whole time. That ended up being quite a stroke of luck though, as I really enjoyed being up front in the middle, and throwing a few shapes – so that’s where my stage position has been ever since. The sound wasn’t great that night – the PA was pretty small, but we still got a great reception. Mark Gardener from Ride did a solo set before us, and he was really excited at the end of the night, just with the whole vibe and how we just seemed to have slotted back in as if 20 years had never happened.

Sold out gig.

On 22nd July, one day before the show, the band published a message on Facebook and Twitter asking for help because their instruments didn't arrive to Taipei:

URGENT !! We have just arrived in Taipei but unfortunately our guitars and pedal -boards and cymbals are still in Chicago!!!...If anyone in Taipei , musicians , bands , SHOEGAZERS , anyone at all...has any equipment they could lend us or hire to us please do get in touch (send a PM Here) otherwise it may be a very quiet gig tomorrow!!! We will be extremely grateful....We need Reverb pedals, Delay pedals, Distortion pedals , Chorus pedals, pedal-boards, leads ... We need guitars ,A LEFT HANDED GUITAR for Christian, guitars for Neil as well....whatever we can get our hands on to make this happen....THANKYOU! ..fingers X

After a big response of the fans, most of the problem was sorted out almost in one hour. Again on Facebook, the band posted this:

AMAZING RESPONSE!!! thanks to everyone.....sooo good...!!..i think we have most of what we need...just looking for left handed guitars ...xxx

The day of the concert, the band published a thank you note for everyone who helped them:

Thanks to every single person lending equipment for tonight's show in Taipei! Truely awesome! The reason our own equipment didn't arrive here is because it was being freighted separately and due to the typhoon the flight was cancelled and we couldn't get the equipment onto another plane in time. It is headed to Japan for Fuji rocks though
