Filipinos love music. Everyone will agree with me when I say that. So, come the long weekend, it’s no surprise that Jack TV’s #MADFest2017 drew a massive crowd amidst the ASEAN break and the excruciating traffic.
Jack TV delivered on its promise and brought back the biggest Music, Arts and Dance Festival: MADFest 2017 championing on the theme Juan Sound. One Playground. It was a celebration of breakthrough Filipino talent as concert-goers enjoyed 12 hours of non-stop music and interactive games to play. Held last November 11 at Circuit Makati Events Grounds, the concert boasted of a lineup consisting of bands such as Bandang Shirley, Hilera, Mayonnaise, Ben&Ben, and Parokya ni Edgar, among others. The event was a success.
Among the booths available were basketball pong, or ‘Basketpong’, a twist to beer pong where you try to shoot the ping pong ball onto a specially crafted board; and IG Print Stations and 360 Photo Booths. Food and drinks were aplenty at the venue, as well. DJ Toons, DJ Katsy Lee and MC Ronthug fired up the party come midnight, while dance performances started MAD Fest 2017, courtesy of Legit Dance Crew and The Alliance.
