100 bands, 5 stages—that’s how big this year’s Rakrakan Festival will be. To be held at the SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds this coming Satuday, January 14, the biggest, loudest, and most exciting all-OPM festival is about the start the year with a bang—and with headbangs, too!
With the theme “Rakrakan: OPM Against Drugs Festival,” the concert will feature 100 artists on 5 stages: Mosh, Move, Groove, Slam, and Indie. Check out the poster for the full lineup:
Aside from its impressive lineup of musicians, there’ll also be the annual Merch Bazaar featuring more than 70 local brands, which includes Nick Automatic, Evil Genius, Frankenstee, Drone Clothing, Merch Box, and Kensuke Creations. A free-for-all skateboarding area, with competitions on the side and other activities such as face painting, graffiti, band meet-and-greet (for VIP pass holders), and tons of beer, will also be happening to make everyone’s Rakrakan experience more memorable.
To get you all excited, we prepared a little list of all the talented babes who’ll be performing this Saturday. Put those earphones on, and check them out here:
Just in case you weren't aware of it already, the 27-year-old actress is also a vocalist for rock band Philia. We really can’t blame you if you fall in love with Arci even more. Once you hear her growl and see her headbang, your rocker heart is sure to flutter.
Every hot blooded man once had a crush on this cute songstress. It seems like this ‘90s babe has found the fountain of youth. And that voice? It's still angelic as ever.
BP Valenzuela is an ambient synth-pop producer, singer, and songwriter that you should be playing on repeat. Catch her live and hear what the fuss is all about.
4) Eunice Jorge of Gracenote
Gracenote's heavy beats coupled with Eunice's heavenly voice is a potent recipe for rockin' out. And believe us, they even sound better live.
5) Julz Savard of Save Me Hollywood
We’re warning you now, this woman is unstoppable. So make sure you’re prepared to jump up and down once their set is on.
Just hearing her sing the iconic Akap is enough to make our day.
7) Saab Magalona- Bacarro of Cheats
This talented young lady will always be the girl-next-door of our dreams, and watching her live, even from afar, will somehow help satisfy our longing.
