Ever heard of Cinco de Mayo? It’s a celebration of the Mexican Army’s victory vs. the French Empire on May 5, 1862. However, over the years, it has evolved into a commemoration of Mexican culture and heritage – complete with mariachi music, parades, and Mexican food! While it’s not highly celebrated here in the Philippines as it is in the United States, premiere events producers ProMedia Productions thought of bringing a unique musical experience inspired by this occasion. So on May 4, 2019, watch out for the first-ever Cinco de Mayhem Music Festival with top local artists and DJs!
Cinco de Mayhem will be a vibrant and festive celebration of music, youthful spirit, community, and life at the Vista Mall Daang Hari Open Grounds this coming Cinco de Mayo weekend, May 4, 2019 (Saturday).
Who will be performing?
Hold on to your sombreros (and maracas, if you will) and marvel at this artistic revelry headlined by local performers James Reid and Nadine Lustre, along with the rest of the Careless Music Manila crew – Astrokidd, Massiah, Kingwaw, Curtismith, and Sofia Romualdez, together with rising and legendary musicians and DJs from Quest, Kiana Valenciano, Divine Smith, DJ Euric, Deuce, to Nix Damn P. To spice the lineup even further, the country’s first and only female MC Marga Bermudez joins the roster, along with a special surprise performer (no clues)!
What to expect?
The brainchild of actor/host turned musician Alexander Diaz, this event aims to mix the richness of Mexican culture and the unrelenting spirit highlighted in this widely-celebrated annual world event.
“I’ve always been passionate about good music and a good party and Cinco de Mayhem combines just that. Not only are we bringing the festivity of Cinco de Mayo in the Philippines, but we are elevating it by ushering in topnotch Filipino talent with our line-up of game-changing musicians,” shared Diaz, festival Creative Director.
