RTL CBS SUMMER FAIR 2017 BRINGS FAME AND ENTERTAINMENT TO FAMILY WEEKEND

RTL CBS Asia just took fun and excitement to a whole new level with a weekend getaway for the entire family. Now on its third year, the RTL CBS Summer Fair returned bigger and better than ever with a slew of attractions as well as activities that let everyone enjoy a rare moment under the spotlight.

The three-day festival drew in crowds at Glorietta Makati from May 26 to 28, bringing to life some of cable TV’s most talked-about shows such as The X Factor UK, The Late Late Show with James Corden, and Scorpion.

Among the highlights included The X Factor Stage and the Carpool Karaoke Booth where fairgoers unleashed their hidden vocal prowess. As for the more physically inclined, the Scorpion Laser Room and a Velcro wall offered an adrenaline rush that had guests coming back for more.

Many lucky fairgoers also brought home several prizes from exciting activities including an ice cream eating contest as well as raffle games from the sponsors.

Secret Talents Revealed

The Summer Fair proved once again that Filipinos are gifted singers as guests belted out songs from classics to today’s radio favorites on The X Factor Stage. Just like in an actual studio, each performance was recorded for the participants to remember this fun weekend.

Fairgoers were also treated to a share-worthy musical experience at the festival’s own version of the Carpool Karaoke, where fans of the social media hit got the chance to sing solo or with friends inside a car a la Adele, Justin Bieber, and One Direction with James Corden.

Lights, Camera, Action!

High-tech crime fighting got real at the Summer Fair as guests took on the Scorpion Laser Room challenge. With only two minutes to complete the mission, participants had to dodge crisscrossing laser beams fast enough to escape the room and win the day.

A Velcro wall further added a bunch of laughter to the event by letting fairgoers both young and old come up with the coolest—and funniest—poses to be captured on camera.

The RTL CBS Summer Fair 2017 was made possible in partnership with Novu Hair, Baskin Robbins, foodpanda, Glorietta, Ayala Malls, Monster RX 93.1, SKY, Devant, and Volkswagen.

Green Day’s American Idiot to set stage at Globe Iconic Store on June 24, 2016

Globe Telecom is set to open its world-class Iconic Store at the Bonifacio Global City Amphitheater this June 24, 2016. Opening the store’s entertainment facility will be the Philippine version of Green Day’s American Idiot with front row acts from rock icons such as Basti Artadi of Wolfgang, Miggy Chavez of Chicosci, Jason Fernandez and Norby David former Rivermaya vocalists, and veteran thespians Nel Gomez.

Phase one of the Globe Iconic Store will be launched, featuring a pioneering glass bridge connected to two separate stores in opposite buildings. This bridge, flanked by two massive LED screens on each side can be converted into a performance space catering to an audience below. This structure is dynamic and innovative and when merged with the creative minds of the Philippine entertainment industry, it becomes an open-air stage with limitless possibilities. While phase two will be opened on the third quarter of 2016 to feature the complete store including a Chroma studio for live production on-site.
To debut on-stage at the Globe Iconic store is the time relevant and hit musical Green Day’s American Idiot. The musical is about a journey of three young men as they face the harsh realities of the world around them – a symbolic post-9/11 America – where they must face the challenges of love, teen pregnancy, war, drugs, and loss. The musical is set to the incredibly biting and riveting music of Green Day that features a surprisingly profound understanding of the pains and frustrations of today’s youth.

“Green Day’s American Idiot is the perfect play to launch the Globe Iconic Store. With the world class entertainment venue we can provide and its unique location, American Idiot’s dynamic story can fully utilize the facility and deliver an immersive theatrical experience like no other. But more importantly we are doing this to be a medium of awareness of the youth today, and bring a valuable lesson of what today’s generation should avoid such as drugs, peer pressure, teen pregnancy and more.” – says Globe Retail Transformation and Stores management Head, Joe Caliro.

The cast features today’s premiere rock and theater acts, to bring a powerhouse performance that represent the current generation. Aside from Jason Fernandez, Miggy Chavez, veteran thespians Nel Gomez, and Basti Atardi.
