The Winter Carnival is set to take place at the Dubai Media City Amphitheatre on December 23.
Headliners will include Bugoy Drilon, Daryl Ong, and Michael Pangilinan — who collectively form the R&B group act Budakhel — as well as Francine Diaz and Seth Fedelin, who make up the love team “FranSeth”. The lineup of performers will also include the likes of Skusta Clee, Bandang Lapis, Chie Filomena, Katrina Velarde, and Alamat.
“Kitakits [See you] Dubai!” Fedelin posted in promotion of the upcoming event. P-pop group Alamat similarly shared that it was their first overseas gig: “See you there, Dubai Magiliws!”
Tickets will become available for purchase soon through Platinumlist. Ticket prices will range from AED 125 (roughly P1,800) for general admission to AED 225 (roughly P3,400) for the fan pit. The carnival will also have a limited VIP lounge package with a meet-and-greet, food, and drinks that can be availed directly from SoundCloud Events, the events management company behind the carnival.
Winter Carnival is the first Filipino-produced music festival to be set at the Dubai Media City Amphitheatre. It will showcase world-class Filipino talents to bring together the Filipino community and their United Arab Emirates friends during the festive season. The said carnival will also showcase other competitions during the day, namely the Christmas choir, P-pop cover, individual singing contest, hip-hop competition, parol-making contest, and painting contest.
SoundCloud Events has yet to release further details but said those interested may message them for more information. Previously, SoundCloud Events brought the likes of KZ Tandingan, TJ Monterde, and Sam Mangubat, among other local artists to Dubai.
