Event: 7107 International Music Festival Day 1

First of all, I would like to thank Ms. Isabelle Daza for picking me as the winner of her contest!!! I wasn’t expecting to win actually (though deep inside I was really really really really hoping that I will!), since I know that aside from the fact that she has lots of followers on Instagram, who would let this opportunity to get free tix to a 2-day music festival headlined by Red Hot Chili Peppers pass right? But I tried anyway, sent a couple of entries and hoped for the best and thankfully I won!!! This was my winning entry:

So when the day came that I can finally pick up my tickets, I wasted no time since it was a Wednesday and the event was on Saturday already and went immediately to their office during my breaktime! When I got there, it was just then that I learned that I won TWO 2-day passes to the event! Each 2-day General Admission pass costs a whopping amount of P10,000—and I got two for free! Plus our ride going to the event was free too! How awesome was that! This was what my kit looks like by the way:

It was sooo cute to see this envelope addressed to me from Isabelle Daza. Tee hee. :”> Anyway, so let’s talk about the event now. What is 7107 International Music Festival anyway? Well…

The 7107 International Music Festival was a two-day outdoor music festival; from February 22 and 23, 2014 at Global Gateway Logistics City, Clark, Pampanga headlined by Red Hot Chili Peppers and Empire of the Sun. As well as Kendrick Lamar and The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. The name of the event, “7107” was taken from the number of islands the Philippine have, and the goal was to unify all these in to one international music event for two days! Two stages present a spectacular lineup of both international and local artists carefully handpicked to satisfy every musical craving. In this world of live music, thrills, adventure, good food, and people from around the globe, the only way to transcend the different cultures is through one language called music.

Special thanks to Guess for providing us a free ride going to Clark, Pampanga for Day 1! It was such a breather for us to save time planning and the hassles we have to go through to have us booked a last-minute bus ride going to the venue, because really, we have decided to go on the last minute. Thank God because we also had a last-minute hotel reservation (since it is a two-day event). A slot has opened because someone had backed up and cancelled their registration and voila! That’s our less than a day of planning our 2-day stay to Pampanga for this event.

We arrived past 12 noon, seeing only a few people around yet apparently, the gates weren’t opened even though the schedule was to open it by 12 noon. Mind you, it was scorching hot that day and we didn’t even have a scarf or hat/cap to lessen the brightness and the heat.

Since we got there super early, we thought we could spend a few hours out, exploring Pampanga. We asked this guy, a staff of 7107 IMF if we could leave for a while and where's the exit. He ust pointed us to the exit and so just like that, we left. To our surprise, it was the music festival's policy to never let someone in after he/she exited the concert grounds so disappointing!!! But it's half our fault too since we did not read the survival map. With this rule implemented strictly, we had no choice but to stay just outside the barricades and waited. I swear, I could hear Taken by Cars playing but I can't do anything but to cheer ourselves because what's done is done. Fvk that guy who let us out though! So what we did was stroll around SM Clark, and find somewhere to eat. To our surprise, we had instant shopping...

We found a great place to eat too! Which is only available in Clark Freeport Zone--it's called Meats & Match (will blog about this too)! They serve all meats: whether chicken, pork or beef, cooked in any way you like: fried, grilled or roasted--you have it. Too bad it's not in Manila. :(

We also walked aroung Clark Freeport Zone to explore, but we got to a place where I think it's where hookers and foreigners go to pick up girls or something like that. Anyway, we changed our path. And just walked around the area of our hotel. The place was nice and pretty big too, we got it for a promo price of less than 2,500 with these:

It was actually bigger than where we're staying in Manila! I told my boyfriend that I wish we could live here or the room/unit we'd live in is just like this. Lol. And since we were'nt able to finsh Day 1 of 7107 IMF, we just enjoyed what we have and where we were. Still all smiles!
