Jacko Wacko: Into the Waves

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Splash, fun and Cheers to great Music! Jacko Wacko has been talked about being one of the most SPLASHED party of this year. From social media, way before its launch, a lot has already spread the word about it. It’s a WATER, MUSIC, FOAM ALL IN ONE CONCERT PARTY EVENT- who won’t go for that?. Event was held at SM MALL OF ASIA OPEN GROUNDS BLOCK 22.

With the musical stylings of various OPM bands, country’s best performers and talented DJs coming together for one event, organized by DLSU Englicom.(Congrats guys!) and Styles Entertainment, Sperry, Pioneer& Pioneer, Close Up, Hawk Backpacks, Chalk Magazine.

Together with Wazzup Pilipinas, Magic 89.9, Urban Rave, ETC, Burger Company, Cold Stone Creamery. Red Baron Ribs, Spectrum Planet and Ruffles Bag. In cooperation with Manila Concert Scene,,, Click the City, Partyphile, Entrep Negosyo, Circuit, RavePH , When In Manila, EDM Philippines, Chinoy TV,, Online Philippines and many more. Come on board and #LetsSailTogether, proceeds of the event will go to a chosen beneficiary.

Everyone was party ready wearing their colored or denim shorts, statement shirts and breezy tank tops, since the theme and hashtag is #RAVEINTOTHEWAVES #INTOTHE WAVES, so as expected get ready get wet and wild. There were only a limited number of tickets that were sold (The event was sold-out btw), A source told me that there were lot of hopefuls that wanted to join in the event, but just patiently stayed out, there were hundreds of them, I am not sure if they were all catered since limited tickets, I guess there were also walk-ins who got lucky. I don’t blame them, from a far you get to see how exciting it was. At registration you get a free glow stick.

At the start of the event, it’s anyone’s choice whether they want to grab a bite to eat from the food trucks. There were loads of food trucks to choose from, have no idea where to start and the good thing there were free drinks and light liquor to taste, or have fun with the festivities, that Jacko Wacko organizers prepared. There were dfferent inflatables to enjoy, balloon fight, games and what’s fun, playing with bubbles! (Hello who doesn’t adore bubbles!) It’s like Coachella but the fun you get to be splashed by water and foam. 

Known faces came to join, SM youth ambassadors and models, LA Aguinaldo and Tommy Esguerra came to party as well and others. Many 6500 attendees came ready to party and stoked to hear the line up of bands, performers and DJs.The crowd was not only massive in number, from 4:30 pm to 3 am, the crowd never fail to stay hyped up. The line ups were amazing, The famous Up Dharma Down played their top hits, Performances by Ace Ramos, Marc Marasigan, Katsy Lee, Jessica Milner, Lucio Pua and Ron Thug on mic . Featuring Yolanda Moon, Maude, Puls, DJ Young Life, Nico Ylanan, Cullen Diaz, Edleen Lim and RolfM o and many more till the after party, DJs’ played to their hearts’ content to the beat of chart topping hits. The Playlist were the bomb!

As it gets darker, the crowd gets wilder and to make their concert experience way unforgettable, they got splashed by water coming from the hose of the firetrucks (Note: everybody was safe), there was continuous bombing of water and foam too, till 12 midnight. Just a note that people should have brought towels and spare clothes to change. People should have their phones and gadgets waterproof, and should have a strong immune system- just saying . The downside, since the ground got wet, it got a bit slimy and muddy as of expected. Then another note of the downside, the public bathrooms, were a bit unsanitary since there were lot of attendees. Well despite that, Everyone definitely enjoyed, had fun ever and can’t wait for next year! Now I feel jealous of not attending because of other blogger commitments that day, anyways there is a next year. Thanks to Lianne (@liannetorres) and Joan (@joanreally) for filling in for me at the last minute and thanks #WazzupPilipinas for me to represent you once again!. – Krizia Louren Catapang @krishgeekness
