Carat Philippines launches the third chapter of Fusion: The Philippine Music Festival
Last year’s salvo focused on tapping into the millennials, to unite them through music and inspire them to sing and visualize as one of what their ideal Philippines would be. With a massive response from the millennials who participated in last year’s music festival, Fusion 2017 now challenges them to use their visions and transform them into actions that would propel the nation forward. After all, there is no one better to shape this country’s tomorrow than the true hope of its future – the youth.
With a bigger cause and tougher challenge, Fusion 2017 promises to be even better and much bolder than it has ever been before. Attendees can expect masterful collaborations between Fusion’s fresh and veteran artists with world-class production, a massive gathering of some of the country’s biggest stars such as Sarah Geronimo, Bamboo, Andrew E., Yeng Constantino, Aegis, former Urbandub Gabby Alipe, famous love teams James Reid and Nadine Lustre, internet sensations Migz and Maya, university heartthrobs 6Cyclemind, Gracenote and Callalily, The Voice Kids Kyle Echarri and Lyca Gairanod, indie bands Ransom Collective and Miles Experience, Asia’s Song Bird Regine Velasquez, rising dance beauty Yassi Pressman among others.
Fusion 2017 will also be introducing the top musicians who joined its independent musician talent search Alab: The Independent Musician Rising Awards. The artists will be unveiled together with a grand production full of lights and sound, dance and songs.
In addition to the efforts of the team behind Fusion, Carat Philippines, an event of this magnitude was made in collaboration with some of the biggest media networks for TV, radio, print, and digital, together with both local and global brands such as the Tourism Promotions Board, 7-Eleven, Max’s Restaurant, Hapee Toothpaste, Philippine National Bank, Tanduay, and Chevrolet Going beyond support, different student organizations chose to be at the forefront of the Fusion Forward movement of bannering the love for our own music and country. With organizations like the Junior Philippine Institute of Accountants in NCR, UP Communication Research Society, and Junior Financial Executives of Polytechnic University of the Philippines, Fusion’s advocacy rallied into 25 campus tours including schools like the University of the Philippines, De La Salle University, and the Polytechnic University of the Philippines, among others.
Fusion 2017 is expecting a whopping 45,000-strong crowd to play as one in one night. Even with a bigger, better and bolder take for 2017, the ticket price still remains the same: 2,000PHP for VIP, 1,000PHP for Gold and 300PHP for Silver. Music lovers can easily buy their tickets online at SM Tickets and TicketNet.
This year, Fusion 2017 is going to be monumental. Let’s move forward as one this coming January 27 at the SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds. The spectacle begins at 5:00 in the afternoon. Let’s once again #PLAYASONE for #FUSIONFORWARD.
