New Moon Festival - April 21

The New Moon have transformed into a Festival with tricks up its sleeves.

Move and groove to the beats of Indio I, Green Leafy and Iraya Band.

Indio i is a band that was formed in 1994, to bring reggae music to a different dimension of popularity to those distinctive Filipino ears. They launched their first album, self-titled Indio I, in 1997 under Star Records. Upon penetrating the local music scene, the band was given recognition by award-giving bodies and networks. At the 1997 NUROCK Awards, Indio i garnered 8 nominations, and at the 1998 Katha Awards, the band brought home the Best Reggae Song Trophy for “Di Mo Lang Alam”. This song along with “S on My Chest”, “Earth to Man” and "Diwata" can still be heard over the radio and at beach bars up to this very day and still continues to be crowd favorites on live gigs. In 2005, Indio I came up with a single, Sister Sinister, as part of the compilation album Doobie NIghts which again proved to be another favorite.

Today, Indio I boasts of it's impressive roster of accomplished musicians from Mike Bewer on lead guitars/backup vocals., Byl Cuenca on rhythm guitar/backup vocals, Alvin Arevalo on bass guitar,Gerald locsin on drums to Paw Bondoc on percussions plus the occasional presence of another original member, guitarist Martin Rey Aviles to accompany it's almost forever main man, Vic Facultad on vocals. Having had numerous changes in line-up since 1998, it continues to hope to bring rock reggae music at it's best the Indio i way!

Aside from the beats of these bands, the Silab Fire Dancers will scorch the night with their fiery performance and free lessons at that.

Then, there's the Needle Juice Tattoo Booth by world-class Onat Buenaventura and Chico Sarayba who can make permanent and temporary tattoos. Let's not forget your hair as we're bringing in Bob Apolinar who makes great dreads (dread locks) and fire dance, too! But not at the same time...that would be crazy.

There's also a bazaar for with souvenirs, clothes and more. Plus, a telescope for the kids to observe the moon and stars!

Just Php 1,050 per person for a Clambake Dinner and New Moon Festival or Php 250 per person with two local drinks for the New Moon Festival only.
