Closeup Forever Summer is just three weeks away! Got your tickets already? Yes? Good. Now let's talk about how you can enjoy this year's much-awaited day of youthful revelry by one of the most-loved brands in the country, Closeup.

Disclaimer: These suggestions came from the pit of my once youthful mind. I hope you agree with me or if not, did things change much from how I party back in my days? Hmm...

1. Go with someone.

You know what they say about two heads being better than one? It applies to attending concerts as well. Imagine just one head bobbing to Martin Garrix's beat. Sad, I know. But two? Now there's a party!

The best thing about going to Closeup Forever Summer with someone is that you can buy your tickets in pairs and get a discount! You can get two (2) VIP passes for only Php6,500 and two (2) Gold passes for only Php4,000. Now you have extra cash for a couple of smoothie and some munchies!

Tickets are on sale through SM Tickets Portals at Php4,000 for a VIP pass and Php2,500 for a Gold pass.

2. Have Fun!

This is very important. Need I say more?

3. Listen to some Angus & Julia Stone.

If you wanna make the most out of this year's Closeup Forever Summer, go early and spend a chill indie afternoon listening to Angus & Julia Stone. Watch and listen to them online. Get familiar with their songs so that you'll be in rhythm with the rest of the indie music lovers in the crowd when you sway your hands in the air. I was actually listening to them while typing this whole thing. They're good! And before you know it...

It's time for some fist-pumping!

To headline the EDM night, one of the best and youngest DJs in the world, Dutch DJ/Producer Martin Garrix will take the stage. Ranked #4 in the world by DJ Mag, Garrix is best known for his track "Animals" which he released when he was only 16 years old. He is currently set to release an album, collaborating with industry big wigs like Usher, David Guetta, Tiësto and Ed Sheeran.

Prepping the EDM crowd for Garrix is DJ Eva Shaw (formerly known as Bambi) and sought-after local acts: Synima, Autotelic, DJ Nix Damn P with Motherbass, and rising young artist BP Valenzuela.

From indie acts in the afternoon and EDM in the evening, Closeup can get you intensely close with intense fresh breath from day to night!

4. Dress whatever you're comfortable with.

Wear your flower crowns or even that traditional headdress that you've been wanting to show off! Be wild! Be creative! There's no judging here. Guys, hear me out here. NO JUDGING, okay? On May 16, we're just gonna have fun. Just that.

My suggestion is to wear something that can take you from an indie afternoon to a night of dance and partying. But most importantly, you have to be comfortable. Like this perhaps?
Ray-Ban shades
ZARA shirt
Giordano drawstring jogger pants
GIBI sandals

5. Stay intensely fresh all day!

It is possible! Just bring the following:
  • Toothbrush and Closeup toothpaste
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Wipes
  • Handheld fan
  • and whatever you can think of! Bring extra shirts! Bring your own portalet! Who cares? Alright, I'm just kidding about the last bit.
6. Charge up!

I'm not just talking about your gadgets okay? That's mandatory! Charge up by getting enough sleep the night before May 16 because it's gonna be a fun all-nighter for sure! Stay hydrated and make sure you feel 100% well. Bring some medicines, too! Food and liquid nourishments are available for sale at the venue so don't worry about it.

7. Get (and stay) connected online with #CloseupForeverSummer!
