Just last week, we were reminiscing about how much we miss the vibrant concert scene and now, we’re already set to see not just one but over a dozen Filipino acts on stage as part of Globe’s G Music Fest this September 16! Music festivals have always been a delightful escape for both the young and young-at-heart and with G Music Fest’s lineup of both rising and legendary artists, I’m sure millennials and Gen Zs alike would want to flock to the Globe Circuit Event Grounds this weekend.
Featuring an array of homegrown talent, this festival ensures that there’s something for everyone. Artists scheduled to perform include Urbandub, Itchyworms, December Avenue, I Belong To The Zoo, Lola Amour, Dilaw, BINI, PLAYERTWO, Paul Pablo, Sugarcane, Mayonnaise, Ace Banzuelo, Nobita, Munimuni, Joem, Syd Hartha, and the queens of Drag Race Philippines. These diverse artists span various genres, from indie to pop to electronic, showcasing the rich and incredible diversity of Filipino music!
Members of the media were given an early preview last Tuesday (September 12, 2023) at Xylo, where OPM artists Carissa, PLAYERTWO, and Nobita performed their hits:
G Music Fest also goes beyond music, aiming to create a space where creativity, technology, and sustainability converge. Peter Ramirez, Globe Rewards senior manager and G Day program lead, stated, that their vision for this year’s festival is to “celebrate the rich tapestry of Pinoy talent while also showcasing the innovations that make such celebrations possible.”
Aside from the performances, this year’s event will also feature the Creator Hub, a place where visitors can immerse themselves in DIY experiences, including a live mural show, Gudi Drip Studio, and a busker stage. The paint-and-sip activity through Drip Splash promises a fusion of art and relaxation, making it a must-try for all. The festival aims to push the boundaries of digital art, offering everyone a chance to interact with installations such as Sketch To Life, the Digital Art Tunnel, Caption Cam, and the Immersive Art Cube, celebrating the fusion of art and technology. Guests may also enjoy immersive AR/VR games via 5G Pixel Play.
Moreover, festival-goers can indulge in a gastronomic journey with a diverse range of food options available at the event. Of course, we have to replenish our energy after back-to-back performances from 1 PM ’til midnight!
