If you are planning to visit Cebu soon, be sure to make it on the weekend of February 18. While the “Queen City of the South” captures a traveler’s gypsy heart with its beaches, unique dishes, getaways, and exciting activities, it is also the venue for the long-awaited comeback of PLUS63 Festival. An annual music and arts festival, it gathers international and local acts at the SM Seaside Complex.
Book a flight on a Friday morning and upon arriving in Cebu, visit the stunning beaches of Bantayan, Malapascua, or Mactan where you could swim, snorkel, dive, or island-hop. In the evening, visit Cebu’s street food markets—including those Carbon Night Market, Sugbo Mercado, The Market in Mandaue, and Tinda Locale. Have a taste of Ginabot, Tuslob buwa, and Lechon, among others which are perfect when paired with boiled young coconut rice called Pusô.
Saturday, February 18, is the date for PLUS63 Festival. After a two-year hiatus, it is back with a stellar line-up headlined by singer-producer-rapper-comedian Joji (who boasts of over 5 billion streams to date) and R&B siren Kehlani (currently on a world tour promoting her latest album Blue Water Road, and will be capping off the said tour at PLUS63 Festival). They are two of this generation’s most accomplished artists.
Also in the line-up of performers are Davao’s rising electro-pop star Paul Pablo, Cebu-based pop-rock bands, The Sundown and Sansette, and Cebu’s crowd favorite DJ Short.
Tickets are available at www.PLUS63Festival.com, www.SMTickets.com and www.InsigniaTickets.com for a three-month installment, zero interest option via Atome.
After that memorable Saturday Night at the PLUS63 Festival, continue the lively vibe at NUSTAR Resort and Casino, a premier five-star hotel offering world-class gaming, entertainment, events, and exclusive shopping.
The day after, you can go island-hopping or basking in the island’s sand bars which you probably thought never existed. If you are a self-confessed sun-worshipper, take a side trip to Oslob, Moalboal, or nearby Mactan.
From unique cuisine, beaches with crystal clear blue waters and powdery white sand, and the warm welcoming vibe of Cebuanos, Cebu has evolved into a destination for wanderlusts. Now, with the multicultural, multi-genre sonic PLUS63 Festival happening on February 18, this city meets the sea festival is a one-of-a-kind event where the curious and free-spirited, creative souls celebrate their passion for music and the arts.
PLUS63 Festival Cebu has previously been headlined by world-famous acts like Steve Angello, Steve Aoki, Showtek, Kid Ink, Dada Life, and LANY.
