The Year Left in Music: Acts to See Before 2019 Ends
Here’s to capping of a really, really good year for concerts in Manila
With 2019’s jampacked concert calendar easing up slowly, we turn our attention to one powerhouse multimedia group that has us excited to close the year out. We’re talking about the folks at Karpos, whose music lineup has stunned time and again, getting acts like Anderson .Paak + HONNE, Bruno Major + Jess Connelly, and most recently Jordan Rakei and Unique to share a single stage. But what’s more, music fans never get the run-of-the-mill concert experience here. Artists and fans are brought closer together via a more intimate venue and a thrilling, once-in-a-lifetime ride through extensive set lists.
In the roundup ahead, a mix of local and international acts to catch (and score tickets to before they run out) with Karpos before the years ends.
