Kanye West is coming to Manila for the first time this 2016.
The hip hop artist, songwriter, record producer and fashion designer will headline the first Paradise International Music Festival (Paradise IMF) to be held on April 9 in the Philippines.
Kanye and other artists are expected to perform at the Paradise Grounds in Aseana City, Parañaque for the music fest that promises to offer a multi-genre lineup.
Kanye West, the husband of Kim Kardashian, released his seventh album, The Life of Pablo, last February 14, 2016. The singer, who has earned 21 Grammy Awards so far, recently revealed on his Twitter account that he plans to release another album in the summer of 2016, tentatively titled Turbo Grafx 16.
Paradise IMF will mark the much awaited return of internationally known Swedish DJ AfroJack who is popular in Manila’s nightlife.
The concert lineup also includes young artist Austin Mahone, whose YouTube channel has sky rocketed him to fame into Billboard hit charts.
Filipinos can also look forward to watching the artist Rudimental known locally for the music video “Not Giving In” shot in the heart of Tondo.
The April 9 international music festival at the Aseana Open Grounds is produced by Boardworks Media Entertainment.
This group is behind the concerts of international acts such as John Legend, Lifehouse, and Beatles Experience in Manila. Boardworks aims to treat music enthusiasts live performances from a wide variety of artists from different genres on a ten-hectare concert ground, with stages set up across the field for a uniquely immersive concert experience.
Paradise International Music Festival promises a musical experience like no other. Boardworks Media Entertainment co-owner Joshua Ylaya says about this event, “We are very much getting ready to make this music festival the biggest yet—it is time to put the Philippines on the map as an international music destination.”
