Araneta City welcomes P-Pop fans to the return of the first and largest event that celebrates local pop music. Expected to be bigger, better, and bolder, the music festival at the Pinoy Pop Convention (PPOPCON) 2023, happening on March 18 to 19, brings together P-Pop artists and fans for a celebration filled with fun activities.
Now in its second year, PPOPCON is making the event more meaningful for fans with highly-entertaining fanbase activities, booths, official merch selling, games, and P-Pop performances at the New Frontier Theater. Capping off the whole celebration is a mega concert featuring today’s biggest and rising P-Pop idols at the Araneta Coliseum.
PPOPCON is also bringing the P-Pop idols closer to their fans this year with the series of mall shows in Araneta City. The mall tour kicked off on February 4 with 6ENSE and YARA at Ali Mall. Another one was scheduled on February 26 with Valfer, MONA, VER5US, HYV, BLVCK FLOWERS, and SMS at the Gateway Mall.
P-Pop idols will also participate in charity days to bond with kids being supported by the J. Amado Araneta Foundation. Groups 1st.One and DIONE spent time with kids from Gawad Kalinga for a history tour at the Gateway Gallery on February 24. Another visit was set at the Art in Island together with VXON, G22, and YML.
PPOPCON was first staged in April 2022 to celebrate the rising global recognition of P-Pop talent. It symbolically marked the return of live music entertainment in the Philippines, which was temporarily halted by the COVID pandemic.
For 2023, the celebration continues as today’s favorite P-Pop artists – SB19, BGYO, BINI, 4TH IMPACT, MNL48, 1ST. ONE, ALAMAT, PRESS HIT PLAY, VXON, G22, KAIA, and more – showcase their talents and interact with fans in one ultimate gathering.
