Swedish DJ Alesso chosen by Netizens to headline Forever Summer concert on April 5

This summer, Closeup Forever Summer gives everyone a summer to remember by bringing in the people’s favorite: Alesso.

Promising an even more exciting music festival, Closeup presents the first ever crowd-sourced party in the country—giving partygoers complete control over this summer’s freshest party. With over 500,000 people on social media, netizens voted for Swedish DJ Alesso to headline the much awaited music festival slated on April 5.


Alesso whose sets are among the most popular at the world’s largest music festivals, namely Tomorrowland, Ultra Music Festival and the Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC), has brought uplifting moments to the forefront of global dance music.

With continuous Beatport chart toppers, his discography is one to be desired having collaborated with producers Sebastian Ingrosso, Calvin Harris, and One Republic and producing unforgettable summer tracks “Calling”, “Years”, “If I Lose Myself”, and “Under Control.”

This summer he makes his return to Manila, but this time to headline a music festival of his own.

DJ Helena

Joining Alesso are DJs Helena and Deniz Koyu. Helena is one of EDM’s rising stars with her progressive, electro, and house beats. She has topped dance charts in Australia, cracked the Top Ten on Beatport, and has played the most popular stages around the globe, headlining Ultra Music Festival’s main stage last year.

No stranger to adrenaline on a grand scale, this boss of electronica captivates arenas at Australia’s largest music festivals like Stereosonic. Seducing dance floors worldwide, Helena amplifies the battlefield, extending her tour reputation across every continent with her musical fusions.

Deniz Koyu

Big-room banger, Deniz Koyu is behind some of the most popular remixes to artists like Zedd (‘Spectrum’), Mike Snow (‘Pretender’), David Guetta (‘Just One Last Time’), Krewella (‘Live For The Night’), and Fedde Le Grand (‘So Much Love’). His recent anthem “Ruby” has been smashing up the Beatport charts lately, amassing support from the scene’s top DJs.

Deniz was hand-picked by Axwell to play at the world premiere of Cosmic Opera in New York, performed at Ultra Music Festival Miami on the peak of his North America headline tour and got confirmed for his first-ever Sensation White appearances.

Club Favorites

Completing the lineup are local club favorites DJs Ace Ramos, Mars Miranda, Martin Pulgar, and Marc Naval.
