GoodVybes Fest 2016 | Passion Pit, CHVRCHES, Oh Wonder and more (Throwback)

GoodVybes Festival 2016 | Passion Pit, CHVRCHES, Stars and more (Throwback)

I know it was already two years ago, but GoodVybes Fest is still probably the best music festival I have ever been to. Like ever. If you missed it, then this post is for you!

I swear this lineup was insaaaaane! It was one of the biggest events for 2016. Passion Pit, CHVRCHES, Stars and Oh Wonder on one stage, same day and event. Back then, I couldn't have asked for more, because I have been wanting to see Passion Pit and CHVRCHES perform live for what seemed like forever.

There were 3 stages, but we stuck at the Live Stage because all the main acts will be performing there. And since this is such a big event, with a huge crowd we figured we don't want to leave our places.

Gates were supposed to open at 1 pm, but it opened past 2 pm. We noticed they were having a problem with their staff system—issuing passes to the media and some concertgoers.

And while we were waiting for our passes, we noticed a foreigner (surrounded by a bodyguard and some more people) walking around. We weren't sure who he was until someone said it's Anthony West of Oh Wonder!

Anthony was so nice to fans, he even entertained photos. Sadly, Josephine was nowhere to be found.

Gates opened late, thus a long line of concertgoers.

We were really early! We made sure to be so we could have a good view!



And thankfully, we were able to! We were at the front!!!!!! We're so near the stage!


All set for a night full of music! Unfortunately, I wasn't able to bring a nice camera to take good photos. But I made sure to take lots of videos!

The first act was Tenderfist, a band from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I loved their set!


Such a chill vibe from these guys.

The sunset was so lovely. While waiting for Stars, we sat on our picnic mat and people-watched.

It was Oh Wonder's first time in the Philippines and I think it's safe to say they liked it here because they made sure to come back. Twice.

We had been wanting to watch CHVRCHES live, and perhaps this was the perfect time for us. The band performed a couple of new songs from their new album at the time!

Passion Pit finally!!! Michael Angelakos was supposed to have a show prior to this. Unfortunately, it was canceled due to bronchitis/pneumonia. Thank God he made sure to make up for it! We were all happy with his performance!

Like what I said, I took a lot of videos! 😉

The night ended with beautiful fireworks. What a night. I'm so thankful to be a part of this event because I got to tick two off my bucket list in one night—watch CHVRCHES and Passion Pit live! So here's to hoping for bigger music festivals this year and being a part of it!
