The country's first festival that fuses music and fashion is back for its second year! Manila X Style + Music Festival celebrates young, hip and innovative individuals in a grand showcase that's by the youth and for the youth. Happening on May 27 at the Globe Circuit Events Grounds in Makati, expect a musical experience like no other, with a solid lineup of international and local acts. Here's a rundown of this year's roster and what songs you should give a listen to before you see them live:
Headlining Manila X 2017 is this international YouTube sensation known for his unique vocals and production. He has become one of the most talked about online artists that we know will continue to hype us up with the anticipated release of his first original project!
Who better to headline and represent our country than the Philippines' own Prince of Rock and The Voice coach, Bamboo? With his ever changing, but always current music, he'll definitely rock our socks off with his performance!
Expect Soul Supreme KZ Tandingan to always give the freshest and most wicked vocal performance you will ever hear and see live. Her renditions are always a n on-point, sensory experience, plus her sense of fashion is TDF!
She may have been introduced to the spotlight as Gary Valenciano's daughter, but this girl is making her own waves in the music industry thanks to her unique voice and catchy tunes. The future is bright for this style and music #inspo!
Mito's, or Curtismith as we know him, fresh take on hip-hop sets him apart from other Fillipino rappers out there. Think Childish Gambino vibes with a rap that leaves people wanting more. This artist is making Filipino rap cool again, with tunes that we can enjoy (and bop to!) with friends. Perfect background music for road trips!
Out of all the artists in the lineup, it's Sam Concepcion we're admittedly most excited about. His musical growth through the years has been consistently good—from being a teen singing contestant to doing RnB and heavy tunes and now, more contemporary pop music. Sam is truly an artist that will never go out of style!
Apart from these artists, Jess Connelly, Franco, Saydie, The Juans, Tukar Sinati, and A-Team will also perform. Plus, the hottest DJs in the metro—Tom Taus, Ron Poe, Patty Tiu, and Carlo Atendido—will also be there!
