88rising Bringing Head In The Clouds Experience to Manila This December

On Tuesday, August 9, HITC Manila made the announcement that the music collective’s flagship festival will take place on December 9 and 10 at the SM Festival Grounds in Paranaque City.

They have not yet made any announcements on the artists who will be performing at the festival. Although ticket pricing have not yet been disclosed, two-day passes for the festival will be available for purchase on the SM Tickets website beginning on August 11.

Following the announcement of their festivals in Los Angeles and Jakarta for this year, the music collective 88rising revealed that they will be bringing their flagship festival Head In The Clouds to Manila through a teaser that was posted on the newly created Twitter account for HITC Manila.

88rising is known for having a sizable fanbase in the Philippines, and in July of 2020, they launched a record label that is specifically geared at artists from that country called Paradise Rising. Jason Dhakal, Kiana V, Fern., Leila Alcasid, and Massiah were the first set of musicians to sign contracts with the label. The compilation album “semilucent” was the first release on the label, and everyone of them made a contribution to it.

The Head In The Clouds festival will make its appearance in the countries of Southeast Asia for the first time during the Manila and Jakarta legs of the festival. The festival was supposed to make its debut in the two countries in 2020, but it was postponed because the pandemic was at its peak. At the time, Rich Brian, Joji, Dumbfoundead, Stephanie Poetri, and Higher Brothers were all confirmed to be a part of the program.

88rising made their debut performance in the Philippines on December 13, 2017, at House Manila. This event was part of their Asia tour that took place in 2017. This event featured performances from Rich Brian, Higher Brothers, and Joji.

Now is a very good time to offer the complete 88rising festival experience with Head In The Clouds for the people of the Philippines, and it is just around the corner. There is a possibility that it will occur promptly after their Jakarta festival in December of this year.

Head In The Clouds LA is happening this August 20-21 with the likes of Jackson Wang, NIKI, Rich Brian, Yebi Labs (Joji DJ Set), BIBI, Chung Ha, Jay Park, Ylona Garcia and more. Meanwhile, the Jakarta leg is taking place this December 3-4.
