How appropriate is it that a music festival falls right after my birthday? The party never stops!
Now, I’ve heard so many negative things about this festival— from artist abuse, to the entire thing coming from dirty money— I’ve heard it all! It was a little overpriced too considering you had to not only pay for the ticket, but for transportation and accommodations as well.
Luckily, my friends from the band Wilderness graciously invited me to come along with them— to take photos and act as manager. It was so much fun!
We got to Clark at around 11 in the morning for sound check.
I ran into Candy, who was practically wearing the same outfit as me— cellphone case included.
After soundcheck, we pretty much killed time at the villa we were staying at. (Thanks, Anna Fontana, for housing all of us!)
We did a lot of power napping (some of us had zero hours of sleep) and swimming, since we had this entire pool all to ourselves.
We also did some t-shirt shredding— which is evident in the photo below.
And oh yeah, we’re back in the festival! It’s officially time to party.
Wilderness did amazing! Well, duh. Of course they did. They’re one of the best bands in The Philippines, if I do say so myself.
Having artist passes in festivals means you are VIP all the way— which meant comfortable couches, a lot of free space, a douchebag jacuzzi, an airconditioned room with buffet and a small FIFA tournament going on.
Oh, and most importantly, unlimited drinks. Yup, you heard it right. UNLIMITED DRINKS.
I also got to meet this band called THE NATIVES, but honestly had no idea who they were. They seemed like pretty cool guys though!
The next morning, everybody woke up surprisingly early, and this is why—
1) We had a very healthy breakfast prepared Grai and Luigi.
2) We needed more downtime in our private pool.
and lastly; 3) we had a bottle of Tequila we had to finish before heading back to the festival grounds
We made it back just in time for Abra and Radioactive Sago Project. Amazing performances, they totally killed it.
Motherbass was sick too! So proud to be friends with such talented people.
Once all these performances were done, it was pretty much back to the VIP lounge for us. Back to our haven of unlimited mojitos and rum coke.
I had an excellent time at the 7107 festival. Definitely one for the books. Kendrick Lamar and Red Hot Chili Peppers were incredible, but that wasn’t a surprise at all.
I look forward to the next festival. I had the time of my life. Thank you, Wilderness. Thank you, Anna Fontana. Thank you, #WeAre7107.
I HAD A BLAST!
