Globe Telecom makes this year’s Dinagyang Festival more fun and memorable as it brings to Iloilo City an explosion of sounds and a kaleidoscope of colors in its Next ACT: Dinagyang 2015 #NextActDinagyang. The event will combine art, community and technology together for four days of excitement and heart-pumping music.
“Globe is committed to be the brand that supports today’s digital lifestyle, and we see this brought to life with our Next ACT (Art+Community+Technology) initiative launched during the unveiling of our new GEN3 Stores last year. For art, there’s music, poetry, paintings, etc. Community is about featuring things that are unique to a particular place. Technology is the core of Globe Telecom’s business. So what we do is we customize the Next ACT to fit the places that we go to. We want to make sure that whenever Globe comes to a festival, we bring something different and provide something to look forward to,” said Joe Caliro, the company’s head for Retail Transformation and Management.
Globe will heat up your Dinagyang nights starting this evening (January 23) as Globe Prepaid pulls up an all-nighter with Loudfest at the Riverside Boardwalk. Ilonggos will get to party with local acts from Iloilo and Bacolod, as well as well-known personalities from Manila. Dance the night away with Funk Avy, Marc Marasigan, Deltastreet, Jade Hartman, Ron Canlas, AJ Ferrer, Roni Miguel Rojas, Clyde Harris, Eric Gella, Anton G., Melvin Baridiano, MC Boo and MC CB.
On January 24, Tattoo leads the party scene with back-to-back outdoor electronic dance music festivals fueled by the country’s hottest DJs. Expect to come out like a piece of art once Tattoo unleashes blasts of colors while Globe Gen3 Ambassadors DJ Mars Miranda, DJ Callum David, DJ Bad Kiss, and DJ Eric Capili bring in their unique individual styles to the Mobility Store paint party at the Iloilo Provincial Capitol Grounds.
On the same evening, another party will be happening at the Flow Superclub which will be to the delight of music and party fanatics who prefer to dance the night away at Smallville Complex. Tattoo and Elektromundo will pull out all stops to provide partygoers with a night to remember. There is also a pre-party in the same venue on January 23. Globe customers can enter for free upon purchase of a mobile Wifi from Globe Mobility or from the various PC shops across the city plus a loot bag that contains a wristband and a Tattoo-branded shot glass which they can use for free shots during the Tattoo hour.
There’s more! Just a few kilometers away, at SM City Carpark, another party is in store for the Ilonggos – TM Republikaravan. This time it will be the highly-popular band Parokya ni Edgar that will provide hot music that will surely delight the party people.
For those seeking family-oriented activities, Globe has a lineup of variety shows with games, dance contests, Kalokalike (celebrity look-alike) competition, among others, which people of all ages can participate in. These will be at the Globe Mobility Village at the Iloilo Provincial Capitol Grounds. They will also be entertained by local bands and DJs from Manila. They will get to visit the one-stop shop Globe Mobility Store-on-the-Go, and take advantage of the game booths. This will be on January 22 to 25 from 4 p.m. onwards. Entrance is free.
“This is Globe’s way of thanking its loyal subscribers, a way of giving back to the community,” said Kiss Ekong, OIC, Retail Operations for Company-owned Stores VisMin.
