American pop-rock band OneRepublic is coming back to the Philippines on June 24 for MTV Music Evolution Manila.
The Grammy-nominated band known for hits like “Counting Stars,” “Secrets,” and “Apologize” is the first act revealed in the music event. It will be the band’s second time in country since performing in 2013.
In a press release, the band exclaimed, “Stoked to be going back to Manila again! We can’t wait to meet everyone for an awesome dance party at MTV Music Evolution Manila 2016!"
A collaboration of MTV and Tourism Promotions Board Philippines, MTV Music Evolution Manila will showcase contemporary and international artists, as well as local flavors on stage. The first iteration of the music fest in 2015 held at the Quirino Grandstand in Manila was attended by more than 22,000 fans. It featured performances from top hip-hop acts such as Naughty by Nature, YG, apl.de.ap, DJ Cash Money, Abra, and Gloc-9. The same success is expected in its latest incarnation.
Tickets for the music spectacle are not for sale, but can be won through various contests starting April 26. Sponsors and partners will be giving out passes through their own promotions.
