Get your guts and bones ready as the country’s loudest all-Filipino Music Festival comes banging right within the outskirts of the Globe Circuit Event Grounds, Circuit Makati this coming December 20, 2014, on a scale unprecedented in the decades-long history of Original Pinoy Music.
Ladies and gentlemen, Rakista Radio presents you Rakrakan Festival 2014, a massive, one-day celebration of Pinoy music, sports, art, and pride. It’s that time of the year again for YOU to rock ‘til you drop!
Rakrakan Festival: Rock ‘Til You Drop will once more bring the finest and the most electrifying acts known in the current local music scene with all the intensity and glamor a music festival of grand proportions can provide.
Now on its second year, Rakrakan Festival will proudly stage at least 70 of the industry’s best artists up on THREE individual platforms representing distinct musical cultures; get intoxicated with the diversity of sounds ranging from the rough, distorted riffs of rock and the heavy, merciless breakdowns of metal and hardcore at the Mosh Stage; to the ebullient and amiable tunes of pop, alternative, and electronica at the Move Stage; and to the warm, mellifluous rhythms of reggae, soul, and jazz music at the Groove Stage. All of them are gathered in ONE huge space – definitely, a euphoric haven for every soul who thinks in music, daydreams in music, and see life in terms of music.
In addition, the main festival will be pumped up with extracurricular activities to complement the increased volume of our stage speakers:
- Skateboarding Exhibition – revamped from 2013’s free-for-all skateboarding activity, Rakrakan Festival 2014 will see the most talented boarders in the metro perform their best tricks and treats in a day-long skateboarding exhibition, with awesome surprise gifts awaiting those who are at the top of their game.
- All-Indie Merchandise Bazaar – a melting pot of Pinoy artistic ingenuity and micro-entrepreneurship, this year’s Merchandise Bazaar will be larger and more exciting with the accommodation of more brands and products. Select from a plethora of original items such as tees and tank tops, shorts and jeans, jackets, shoes and sandals, inexpensive jewelry, shades, buttons and pins, pipes, toys, and more at very competitive prices.
- Food Bazaar – integral to the overall satisfaction of Rakrakan Festival, the Food Bazaar will add more participants and culinary choices to its menu to better meet the calorie needs of tens of thousands of energetic, music-hungry fans throughout the event grounds. Choose from a delectable assortment of foods to accompany your concert experience may it be standing and singing along with the crowd or shopping for Rakrakan souvenirs.
- Pocket activities such as henna tattooing and tattoo displays, intermission games, distribution and selling of sponsors’ products, information drives, and many others will also be there to enhance the whole festival experience.
Rakrakan Festival: Rock ‘Til You Drop started in 2013 with the ambition to see the best of what OPM can do. It was pictured to be the largest congregation of homegrown artists and their supporters of its time, a utopia for every rock-hearted and hardheaded Rakista fan where the prime rule was to rock ‘til you drop; it turned out to be a successful celebration of everything that espouses the culture of OPM, its talents and its future. Inspired by this feat, Rakista Radio now aims to help bring our skills and crafts to a broader, more international range of audience, one festival at a time.
So don’t miss it on December 20 (Saturday).
