#EastwoodNYE2023: Eastwood City to host bigger, brighter New Year Countdown 2023

Eastwood City, home of the longest-running and most-anticipated New Year’s Eve countdown celebration in Manila, returns with a bigger and brighter series of events to usher in the year 2023.

Going all out with its biggest celebration in two years, Eastwood – Quezon City New Year Countdown 2023 is set to return with a bang this December 31 at the Eastwood Mall Open Park with the much-anticipated free-for-all event that will feature live musical performances, fireworks displays, the iconic Star Drop, exciting activities, and an after-party that will run until the early hours of 2023.

The Rock to New Year’s Eve concert will begin at around 9PM. Guests can jam to energizing performances from Christian Bautista, Lola Amour, Yeng Constantino, and Zack Tabudlo.

The event will be hosted by Janeena Chan and Christian Bautista

When the clock strikes twelve, the crowd will be treated to a stunning view of Shower of Stars, a simultaneous fireworks display that will happen in two locations: at the 1880 Building and at the Global One Building. Eastwood City’s traditional Star Drop, which hearkens to the world-famous Ball Drop in Times Square in New York City, will also signal the changing of year, as well as a special Bubble Shower.

All night long, guests can visit Tipple Stations around Eastwood City, where they can toast to a selection of premium booze. Revelers can also swing by the New Year Picks booths, where they can find NYE merchandise, a sparkling photo wall for souvenirs, and other activities that are best enjoyed with family and friends.

The celebrations continue at the NYE After-Party at Fuente Circle, where there will be exciting games and a live DJ set awaiting revelers.

Those who are planning to relish in grand feasts or New Year gift hunting, Shop ‘Til Star Drop will treat guests to mall-wide deals and promotions on dining and shopping.

“This will be our grandest New Year’s Eve celebration after two years so we are excited to welcome everyone back to Eastwood City. We made it a point that our festivities will bring joy and entertainment; and most importantly inspire everyone to have a positive outlook and a determined spirit to face the year 2023,” said Graham Coates, Head of Megaworld Lifestyle Malls.

FALLING HEAD OVER HEELS FOR LOLA AMOUR’S MUSIC

Despite the local music scene being hit hard by the pandemic, musicians from left and right are releasing hit singles, full-fledged albums, to viral and interactive content. And one of those artists who are enjoying their fair share of success is Warner Music Philippines’ seven-piece band Lola Amour with their breakthrough single “Fallen.” A year after its release, “Fallen” is now at 25 million streams on Spotify and peaked at #11 last Saturday, November 19 on Spotify Philippines’ Top 50 chart. “Fallen” is a danceable tune with catchy trumpet hooks and lyrics that are easily relatable – how do you tell a person that you’ve fallen for them? “Fallen has been getting a lot of great feedback and is continuously being streamed more times than we expected,” the band says. Apart from millions of streams, the hashtag #FallenStory took TikTok by storm, with people telling stories about their love life.

Lola Amour has been on the wild ride of their lives being one of the most sought-after bands in the country today. The band is composed of Pio Dumayas (vocals, guitar), Zoey Gonzales (guitar), Raymond King (bass), David Yuhico (keyboard), Angelo Mesina (trumpet), and two session musicians. Naming themselves after Dumayas’ grandmother, they started making waves in the local music scene after winning Wanderband 2016, an annual competition by Wanderland Arts and Music Festival. Fusing pop, rock, and funk, Lola Amour’s music became an instant favorite among listeners, particularly the millennials, Gen Z, and Gen Alpha. The band has been on a non-stop musical journey since, from playing in multiple music festivals and fairs, collaborating with contemporaries such as Leanne & Naara, Clara Benin, and Al James, and numerous nominations from Wish Music Awards and Awit Awards.

From establishing a solid fanbase in the metro and online, they embarked on a journey across the country, playing music for jam-packed venues in partnership with Ayala Malls. The band’s Fallen Tour staged 10 shows in 9 major cities- Bacolod, Cagayan de Oro, Makati, Quezon City, Davao, Subic, Pampanga, and two shows in Cebu. The tour housed over 30K attendees, with Davao having the largest crowd of 11K people. “As much as we’re happy that we were able to gain a lot of fans throughout the pandemic, performing live in front of an audience is a different experience,” they state after seeing a downpour of supporters on their socials and live shows.

The band also surprised the fans with a new single in the middle of the tour. Entitled “dahan-dahan,” the new single is far from the upbeat track “Fallen”. The song is about two people who have fallen in and out of love multiple times. It’s familiar and anticipatory, all while feeling like the first time all over again. The song now boasts almost 335K streams on Spotify alone, with its lyric video on YouTube at 184K views. As they take in the success they’re having now, the band is inspired to work on new music for the upcoming year. “We blocked off almost our entire January so that we can finish as many songs as we can.” Lola Amour hopes that they can finally deliver a full-length album after years of promising this to their fans.

Globe Celebrates 917 with an #ExtraGDay

The iconic 0917 is now more than just a mobile prefix for Globe subscribers. Over the past years, Globe has taken 0917 or September 17 as an opportunity to treat its customers to exciting experiences, rewards, and surprises. It is one way that Globe thanks its customers for their loyalty and support, a celebration that transforms ordinary days into something extraordinary.

This year, Globe is back with a bigger, larger than life 917 GDay celebration full of all things EXTRA for the whole month of September. The focal point of this year’s 917 GDay celebrations is the G Music Fest, which will take place on September 17, 2022. The G Music Fest is going to be an exciting whole day festival that will feature the best talents in music, entertainment, culture and art. This year’s G Music Fest will be a hybrid event, with the live experience hosted at the Globe Circuit Event Grounds, Ayala Malls Circuit, Makati, and also streamed online through Globe VH Metaverse.

“The past couple of years have been incredibly challenging for everyone. Now that the world is slowly opening up and we can enjoy life together face-to-face, we’re excited to once again bring all the uplifting, lighthearted experiences that our loyal customers may have been missing and needing,” said Globe Marketing Head Pia Colby.

Seventeen local and international acts are slated to entertain live and online audiences, including Thai indie-pop, neo-soul singer-songwriter Phum Viphurit and Kpop act BugABoo, a six-member South Korean girl group, for whom the G Music Fest will be their first live Philippines performance. Other confirmed musical acts are homegrown talents The Juans, Kaia, Matthaios, Unique, I Belong to the Zoo, JOEM, Lola Amour, Arthur MIguel, Paul Pablo and many more surprise guests.

As the G Music Fest is about extraordinary experiences, Globe has also invited celebrated contemporary artist-designer Leeroy New, to showcase his larger-than-life art installations. New, who hails from General Santos City, has had his works showcased at, among others, the Singapore Biennale, Fukuoka Asian Art Triennial, and more recently at Palais de Tokyo, Biennale of Sydney, Honolulu Triennale, and Somerset House. He was also selected to build an installation for Burning Man 2020. Another artist who will share his talent is TRNZ, who ventures into the world of NFTs. His past work has been exhibited in Hong Kong, Europe, South Korea, Jakarta, Los Angeles & New York, with an upcoming exhibition in Paris. TRNZ is the exclusive artist of Superordinary Friends, a collection of unique avatars each holding iconic food items. These limited edition illustrations combine quirky visual appeal with nuanced storytelling and will be launched in October.

Adding to the excitement, festival goers will also have the chance to own their first Non-Fungible Token (NFT) through Globe’s partnership with MetaverseGo!. The two brands have joined forces to create Gudi, a unique NFT in celebration of 917 #ExtraGDay and can be redeemed using Globe Rewards points.

Complementing the top-tier musical line-up and larger-than-life installations on the festival grounds is Globe Passion City where festival goers can use their Globe Rewards Points to enjoy fun & immersive Gaming (GGWP), Korean (Kmmunity Ph) and Anime (Sugoi Society) activities and merch collections.

Digital natives will also get to enjoy exciting activity booths and win vouchers from their favorite apps TikTok, Tinder, foodpanda, Kumu, and many others. Specially curated festival grub and pours, and exclusive 0917 merchandise are also available for guests to enjoy.

These are just some of the wonderful things one can expect at this year’s G Music Fest, and Globe still has a lot more surprises up its sleeve. Now in its third year, G Music Fest was born during the pandemic to inspire optimism and recognize every Globe customer’s continued patronage of the brand. Past performers include American pop rock band LANY, and proudly homegrown talents Kiana Valenciano, Ben & Ben, UDD, and SB19 among others.

“A lot of things have changed since the pandemic hit, but a lot of things have remained the same. We continue to be grateful to our customers and we’ll never tire of making wonderful, extraordinary experiences for them. We look forward to meeting everyone at the G Music Fest on 9-17, and we promise you an #ExtraGDayEveryday,” Colby added.

Ayala Malls amps up Filipino music at ALive! feat. Zack Tabudlo, Arthur Nery, Nadine Lustre and more

Finally, concerts are back! This time, it’s not virtual—it’s face to face. The era of streaming from home is slowly drifting to be replaced by the way concerts have always been enjoyed by true-blue fans. Local artists are welcomed back on stage as Ayala Malls hosts a series of physical, mallwide concerts running all the way until June. The event, known as ALive!, spotlights rising and established artists including Zack Tabudlo, Arthur Nery, Adie, Sud, Nadine Lustre, and more.

ALive! artist breakdown
First on the lineup is the fast-rising singer-songwriter/producer, Zack Tabudlo, who’s set to play at Market! Market! on April 23 and Ayala Malls Manila Bay on April 24. The “Binibini” hitmaker under Island Records Philippines has been touring Ayala Malls since early March to serenade audiences with his latest hits like “Asan Ka Na Ba,” “Pano,” and other favorites from his breakout album, “Episode”.

Twenty-three year old Arthur Nery is sharing his jazzy, feel-good sound as he performs at Solenad on April 24; Fairview Terraces on May 8; Cloverleaf on May 13; Alabang Town Center on May 21; Ayala Malls Feliz on May 28; MarQuee Mall on June 4; and Harbor Point on August 6. The CDO-local, who is now under Viva Records, broke into the scene in 2019 after releasing his album, “Letters Never Sent.”

“While many artists became more known through digital platforms during the pandemic, nothing beats physical live performances in front of the crowd,” says Vic del Rosario, founder and chairman of Viva Entertainment, Inc.

Other Viva Records stars to grace the stage include Adie, the Biñan, Laguna native who quickly rose to fame with over 2 million monthly listeners on Spotify and over 67 million plays for his breakout hit, “Paraluman.” Fans can finally watch the wonderboy live at Solenad on April 23; MarQuee Mall on May 13; and Harbor Point on June 17. Meanwhile, mega-superstar Nadine Lustre will be at Market! Market! on April 24 for a one-time only concert. Fresh from Siargao, audiences can expect a mix of upbeat and soulful vibes from the “Wildest Dreams” singer.

As one once said, two is better than one! Audiences can catch two-in-one performances from Warner Music talents at Ayala Malls Manila Bay’s “Live at The Garden”. Playing onstage are modern rock-funk-pop, Lola Amour, and singing-songwriting girl-duo, Leanne & Naara on May 1; Boogie-fusion band, Basically Saturday Night, and rising star, Arthur Miguel, on May 8; and “Forever Alive” singer, Keiko Necesario, and indie rock/jazz fusion band, Sud, on May 14.

Finally, Happy Plays Music Festival features some of the country’s biggest names in music including the following main acts: Sandwich, 6cyclemind, Moonstar88, Imago, and Gracenote. Catch the group perform live at Market! Market! on April 30; Solenad on May 14; Ayala Malls Manila Bay on May 28; Alabang Town Center on June 4; Glorietta on June 11; and U.P. Town Center on July 22

“We thank Ayala Malls for giving artists and fans the opportunity to gather within a safe and comfortable space. Ayala Malls is the perfect venue for the comeback of face-to-face performances because of its controlled environment and convenient accessibility,” muses del Rosario.

“We want to continue creating amazing experiences for our patrons by bringing live entertainment back in our malls. This goes hand-in-hand with our goal to support Filipino music and local artists especially after all the lockdowns and quarantines we’ve been through,” says Tintin Enriquez-Yabao, Ayala Malls Consumer Marketing Head.
