Music Festival --- “IN THE MIX” features International Acts The 1975, Third Eye Blind, Panic! At The Disco, James Bay, Elle King, and Twin Pines on August 18 at the MOA Arena!
As one of 2016’s most-awaited music festivals, ‘In the Mix’ will feature live performances from both popular and emerging artists on August 18, 2016 at the Mall of Asia Arena. Tickets go on sale on May 21, 2016.
Returning to the country as promised at their Manila gig in 2015, The 1975 will be back with new materials and daring new sound with the sophomore album 'I Like It When You Sleep For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It', soared to the #1 spot on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart and produced the hit singles like “Love Me”, “Ugh!”, “The Sound”, and “Somebody Else”. The album was out early this year --- a follow-up from their 2013 debut 'The 1975.' The Manchester synth-rock band was responsible of producing hits like “Chocolate”, “Girls”, and “Sex” to name a few.
After their first visit in 2008, Grammy-nominated Panic! At The Disco is also returning with the recently released fifth studio album, ‘Death of a Bachelor.’ Ten years after, the award-winning rock band’s sole remaining founding member Brendon Urie describes their fifth LP as "a mix between Sinatra and Queen" which he written alongside the likes of Ricky Wilson and Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo.
Among the newcomers is 2016 Grammy’s Best New Artist nominee James Bay, who is also set to perform his collection of dusty, blues-inspired songs from his debut ‘Chaos and the Calm.’ With his notable singles “Let It Go” and “Hold Back The River,” James also nabbed Grammy nominations for ‘Best Rock Album’ and ‘Best Rock Song’ for his track ‘Hold Back the River.’
Hailing from Glasgow, frontman Barry Morrell, drummer Graham Brown, and bassist Callum McConville are a three-piece anthemic indie band known as Twin Pines- a homage to the mall in their favourite film “Back to the Future”. With a fresh and innovated sound their single “Young Heart” is scheduled for release this May. The track has already featured on E4 hit show ‘Made In Chelsea’ and has been one of the stand out tracks during the band’s recent live performances.
Tickets to “In The Mix” will go on sale starting May 21, 2016.
