The inaugural Aurora Music Festival was held in Clark Global City on June 10 and 11 last year, and featured performances from Ben&Ben, Unique Salonga, December Avenue, Zack Tabudlo, ADIE and more. The organisers have estimated that over 150,000 people attended the 2022 festival.
Ben&Ben most recently released a new single called ‘Dear’ on November 25 last year. It was their fifth release of the year following the singles ‘Mag-ingat’, ‘Paninindigan Kita’, ‘Langyang Pag-ibig’ and ‘The Ones We Once Loved’, and marked the band’s homecoming following a US tour that began in September.
Filipino rockers Parokya ni Edgar recently sent out a plea imploring fans to assist their guitarist Gab with payments for his medical treatment following his hospitalisation due to complications brought about by lymphoma. The guitarist was diagnosed with lymphoma last year and has been undergoing chemotherapy, but was not prepared for an onset of pneumonia due to his condition.
Lola Amour last released the romantic single ‘dahan-dahan’ in October last year, following the EP ‘The Lunchtime Special’ which they put out in September. The outfit also bid farewell to saxophonist Joxx Perez and drummer Renzo Santos last year, marking the departure with an online concert and documentary, titled Looking Back. The band have opted to carry on with sessionists instead of replacing Perez and Santos, and currently consists of Pio Dumayas, David Yuhico, Raymond King, Zoe Gonzales and Angelo Mesina.
The lineup for Aurora Music Festival 2023 is:
