Everyone was party ready wearing their colored and denim shorts,
statement shirts and breezy tank tops, since the theme and hashtag is
#RaveWithTheWaves, (other hashtags #DLSUJackoWacko #JackoWackoDLSCU) so as expected get ready get wet and wild.
There were only a limited number of tickets that were sold (The event was sold-out btw), A source told me that there were lot
of hopefuls that wanted to join in the event, but just patiently stayed out,
there were hundreds of them, I am not sure if they were all catered since
limited tickets, I guess there were also walk-ins who got lucky. I don’t blame
them, from a far you get to see how exciting it was. At registration you get a
free glow stick.
At the start of the event, it’s anyone’s choice whether they
want to grab a bite to eat from the food trucks. There were loads of food
trucks to choose from, have no idea where to start and the good thing there
were free drinks and light liquor to taste, or have fun with the festivities,
that Jacko Wacko organizers prepared. There were dfferent inflatables to enjoy,
balloon fight, games and what’s fun, playing with bubbles! (Hello who doesn’t adore bubbles!) It’s like Coachella but the fun you get to be
splashed by water and foam.
Known faces came to join, SM youth ambassadors and models,
LA Aguinaldo and Tommy Esguerra came to party as well and others. Many 6500
attendees came ready to party and stoked to hear the line up of bands,
performers and DJs.The crowd was not only massive in number, from 4:30 pm to 4 am, the crowd never fail to stay hyped up. The line ups were amazing, The
famous Up Dharma Down played their top hits, Performances by Ace Ramos, Marc
Marasigan, Katsy Lee, Jessica Milner, Lucio Pua and Ron Thug on mic . Featuring Yolanda Moon,
Maude, Puls, DJ Young Life, Nico Ylanan, Cullen Diaz, Edleen Lim and RolfM o
and many more till the after party, DJs’
played to their hearts’ content to the beat of chart topping hits. The Playlist
were the bomb!
As it gets darker, the crowd gets wilder and to make their
concert experience way unforgettable, they got splashed by water coming from
the hose of the firetrucks (Note: everybody
was safe), there was continuous bombing of water and foam too, till 3am. Just a note that people
should have brought towels and spare clothes to change. People should have their phones and gadgets
waterproof, and should have a strong immune system- just saying . The downside, since the ground got wet, it got a bit
slimy and muddy as of expected. Then another note of the downside, the public
bathrooms, were a bit unsanitary since there were lot of attendees. Well
despite that, Everyone definitely enjoyed, had fun ever and can’t wait for next year! Now
I feel jealous of not attending because of other blogger commitments that day,
anyways there is a next year. Thanks to Lianne (@liannetorres) and Joan
(@joanreally) for filling in for me at the last minute and thanks #WazzupPilipinas
for me to represent you once again!.
