The latest and greatest of both global and local music scenes are set to bring the house down at the newest festival in town
There’s nothing quite like finding out that some of your all-time favorite bands are going on tour, more so playing at the same music festival along with other amazing acts. But what often follows is a sinking feeling in your chest brought on by the painful realization that seeing them live means dropping some serious cash to fly a thousand miles away. Not this time! A whole new music festival in Manila is going to go head-to-head with its international counterparts: ladies and gents, prepare to dive into great music and so much more at the GoodVybes Fest.
Headliners Passion Pit, Chvrches, Stars, and Oh Wonder, along with artist to watch Tenderfist from Kuala Lumpur and international DJs Busy P, Darius, and MYD, as well as local favorites Kjwan, Brigada, Brisom, Moonwlk, Assembly Generals, Mulan, Samantha Nicole, Pelvis Relsey and The Sex Offender, and BP Valenzuela are ready to amp up the GoodVybes on February 20, 2016 at the Aseana Open Grounds. Tickets are now up for grabs at P7,500 for VIP, P5,500 for Gold, and P2,800 for Silver.

Finally coming our way is the highly anticipated, much-awaited American indie-electronica band, Passion Pit, known for hits like “Take A Walk” and “Carried Away.” Catch them perform favorites from their hit album Gossamer and latest release Kindred. Finally, the long wait is over, and, in a few months, your patience will surely be worth it.
CHVRCHES hails from Scotland, and is comprised of Lauren Mayberry, Iain Cook, and Martin Doherty.
Joining them is another crowd-favorite: Chvrches, the Glasgow-based synthpop band that charmed their way to the hearts of Filipinos in November 2014. Fans on social media clamored for their return—and with much success. They’re set to light the stage up once again with tracks off their recently released sophomore album Every Open Eye so get ready to dance the night away!
The music video for Stars’ “Your Ex-Lover is Dead” features the band playing their instruments while lying on a skating rink, evoking Michel Gondry’s Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
To add to the already stellar lineup of main acts is Stars, the prolific indie rock band behind favorites “Dead Hearts” and “Your Ex-Lover is Dead” is guaranteed to bring their A-game and perform the best show of your life. Now out with their latest EP, Lost & Found, there’s more to look forward to from this Canadian fivesome’s performance.
Oh Wonder’s eponymous album came together after the band released one new song every month for a year on Soundcloud.
Rounding out this year’s headliners is one act poised to make some major waves in the music scene: Oh Wonder, a pop duo from London with 2.1 million monthly listeners on Spotify and 3.9 million views on YouTube—stellar numbers that are still on the rise—will also be performing at the festival.
If Vybe Production’s knack for bringing in on-the-rise and up-and-coming talents before they explode is any indication of what’s to be expected, then you’re surely in for a show to remember from these breakthrough artists.
And who says it’s got to be all about the music? GoodVybes Fest fuses fashion and fun into the mix with different booths and activities for you to enjoy. Walk down Food Market for the best festival grub you can dream of (sans the hefty price) to prepare for the wildest Water Gun Fight of your life. Afterwards, take a dip in the pools scattered throughout the venue to cool off. Sit back and lounge around the Gaming Tent to kill time (and opponents) while waiting for your favorite act to perform. Or, better yet, explore the glorious three- hectare festival space to find the perfect spot for an #OOTD or two, or three, or four. Go ahead and go crazy because with FREE WiFi, you can upload all the pics you want, really.
