Globe has already evolved from being just a service provider into being the purveyor of Filipinos’ digital lifestyle by providing relevant and innovative products and services that go beyond access to support customers’ interests and enrich their lifestyles. For many Filipinos, music is a foremost passion so Globe has already made significant headway in giving its customers both online and offline music experiences through Spotify, YouTube, Wanderland, Coldplay, Madonna, Harry Styles, and most recently, BLACKPINK.
Seek the magic and make it matter with the #WanderlandCommunity! To make Wanderland a magical experience for everyone, be sure to observe proper festival etiquette.
