MADFest 2015 proved to be a blast, with the beautiful mixing of music, arts, and dancing—not to mention lovely ladies left and rightmaking the 12-hour entertainment spectacle an epic affair.

Fresh local music acts kicked off the festivities, followed by a loud and satisfyingly jam care of established rock outfits, before the much-awaited and well-worth-the-wait set by the international pop-techno duo Nico & Vinz

The night, which was also sprinkled with art displays and dance showcases, was then fittingly capped by progressive house DJ trio Futuristic Polar Bears together with a few local MCs.

Still, despite the unbridled ecstasy, there are a few things about the festivities that didn't quite catch our fancy, like...


1)   THESE THINGS THAT BLOCKED OUR VIEW OF THE STAGE

Just a giant Jenga puzzle

Live art


2)   OUR FAVORITE NEWCOMERS PLAYED 'TOO EARLY'

BP Valenzuela and Curtismith started performing when the sun was still up; we arrived when it was already Mayonnaise's turn to play. Bummer.


3)   WE CAN'T HEAR OURSELVES WITH ALL THE BANGING

4)   SETS WERE '
BITIN'

Sure, Parokya Ni Edgar managed a decent five-song set, but what about Urbandub, Franco and the others, who had just three songs each?


5)   MAYUMI GOMEZ OF IMAGO DIDN'T DO A STAGE DIVE

We waited the whole set.


6)   WE DON'T HAVE ABS LIKE MARC ABAYA'S...

That's why we just hung out at the beer station.


7)   ...OR A BEARD LIKE FRANCO'S

Holy...hair.


As for the headliners...

8)   WE CAN'T PLAY THE HARMONICA AS GOOD AS VINZ


9)   WE WEREN'T ABLE TO CATCH NICO'S SOCCER BALL


10)   AND FINALLY, 12 HOURS JUST WASN'T ENOUGH

Darn you, Jack TV!
