Following successful legs of Spotify KALYE X’s in Cebu and Davao, the concert series welcomes avid and future listeners of the Philippines’ authentic street sound through a one-night gathering on October 28, 2023, at the Circuit Event Grounds, Makati, having greatness slated across its lineup.
Local hip-hop icon Gloc 9 headlines its Manila rendition, joined by fledging lyricist Ramdiss and flow master Hero, for the live unveiling of ‘Umaga,’—the final track of the three first-ever original Filipino hip-hop Spotify Singles as part of the KALYE X movement. Established to foster bonds between artists and their followers, the three-month project embraces the diversity of origins and expression brought forth through communal sound.
In partnership with Wish 107.5, the free-of-entrance gathering requires attendees to be at least 18 years of age, have a pre-registration QR code, a registered Spotify account, and a valid ID (date of birth present). The event formally welcomes Spotify Premium users at 4:00 PM, providing an exclusive behind-the-scenes experience of the artists’ soundcheck, as free users will only be permitted to enter by 5:30 PM.
Apart from the final track’s debut, emcee Dash Calzado spearheads the festivities with Rekta sa Kalye’s Kayle City Xypher, live graffiti by Trip 63, various interactive booths, and Wishclusive performances by Gloc-9, Ramdiss, and Hero.
