CloseUp Summer Solstice


Most of us were already booked our flights to the country's beautiful beaches such as Boracay - one of our favorite summer destinations. But for those staying in the metro, you might probably wondering what to do this summer. logo

Solstice has arrived, when the sun sits as its highest and the sun reaches its highest point. In other words, summer is here!

This summer CloseUp introduces a new tradition to Summer Solstice.  It will be loved by party goers, music lovers, adventure seekers, and anyone and everyone looking for a good time, to an open field in the name of music. It's a 12-hours of non-stop summer partying, as CloseUp gives you 12-hours of non-stop fresh breath.

The launch was held last March 5 at White Space when CloseUp officially announced the Summer Solstice music festival, featuring both local and foreign artists, guaranteed to give a summer experience we will never forget.

CloseUp has always taken pride in its musical heritage, with iconic songs that have touched the hearts of numerous generations, and with record-breaking events such as Lovapalooza. This year, it’s time to embark on a new adventure—something that has never been done before, something that creates an avenue for people to get even closer,” says CloseUp Philippines Brand Manager, John Imperial.
