Jan 5, 2016

After its cancellation last December due to stormy weather, Rakrakan Festival '15 is all set to take place on January 16, 2016.

Rakrakan Festival: Rock 'Til You Drop! is slated to take place at the Globe Circuit Events Ground, Circuit Makati.

The event will again feature 70 mainstream and indie musicians on 3 stages: Mosh, Move, and Groove.

The Mosh stage will showcase loud-and-heavy rock, hardcore, and metal music from Rakrakan Festival regulars Slapshock, Queso, Wilabaliw, Chicosci, Kjwan, Skychurch, and Valley of Chrome.

Meanwhile, 2014's crowd favorites Urbandub, Rocksteddy, Callalily, Mayonnaise, Gracenote, 6cyclemind, and Drive Me to Juliet will be moving crowds at the Move stage once more.

Reggae-heads and those with a penchant for chill, "peaceful" rhythms will again indulge in the music of Tropical Depression, Brownman Revival, Jeck Pilpil and Peacepipe, The Chongkeys, Autotelic, Flying Ipis, and Tricia Garcia at the Groove stage.

In addition to these recurring artists, Rakrakan Festival '15 will, for the first time, see performances from Wolfgang, The Late Isabel, and Cebu-based Faspitch at the Mosh; Franco, all-female band Rouge, and 2014 Red Horse Beer PML champion Nobela at the Move; and Paranoid City, BP Valenzuela, Taken By Cars, and Techy Romantics at the Groove, among others.

Guests can also witness an open skate jam session and mini competition at the Mountain Dew Skate Park. There will be a new Street Art Exhibition, which will award the 3 best street art crews at the festival.

In addition, face painting, henna tattooing (in select merch bazaar booths), band meet-and-greet and free Segway rides (for VIP pass holders) will complete the Rakrakan Festival '15 experience.
