[Playlist] Paradise IMF: Watch these amazing live performances from the acts
On April 9, Saturday, music fans will converge at Aseana City, Parañaque for the newest festival to hit Manila. Amazing artists from here and beyond promise a weekend that's one for the books.
The spotlights are on 'Ye and Wiz, but watch out for the other musicians as well, including top electronic acts Afrojack and Rudimental, plus rising pop artist Austin Mahone. The Airplane Boys will also give a dose of slick hip-hop earlier in the day.
Local stalwarts like Up Dharma Down, Hale, and Itchyworms, and emerging acts like Cheats, Yolanda Moon, Maude, Lenses (formerly known as Hidden Nikki), Giniling Festival, and Clara Benin are must-see acts as well. 4th Impact, the Filipino quartet that has wowed with their powerful pipes in X Factor UK, is also set to make an appearance.
Katsy Lee, Jessica Milner, Rivero (from Israel), and DJ Nina along with Joyce Pring will take to the decks to keep the Paradise crowd pumped throughout the day.
