- It is not just set to paint the town red but Globe Telecom is bringing a plethora of colors to this year’s Sinulog Festival as it unveils the NEXT ACT (Art + Community + Technology) Sinulog 2015 that gives locals and tourists from all walks of life a flavor of the next-generation festival celebration with exclusive offers, biggest parties, and heart-pumping concerts that are sure to give everybody the most wonderful festival experience.
“Sinulog cuts across all audiences, thus, Globe also offers an engagement for everyone from all ages whether through exclusive promos on products and services or via the numerous events lined up in different venues in Cebu. We want everyone to enjoy Globe wherever they are and whatever their mood or lifestyle may be,” said Joe Caliro, Globe Head of Retail Transformation and Management.
At the center of it all is the Globe “village” in One Mango Avenue Mall, one of Cebu City’s main venue of festivities and fanfare and where the fully-functioning, one-stop shop Globe Mobility Store-on-the-Go holds court surrounded by interactive game booths of Tattoo, Globe Prepaid, Globe Postpaid, TM as well as its partners, Cloudfone and Allphones.
Globe Mobility Store-on-the-Go does not only provide instant processing of postpaid line and broadband applications but also introduces a breathtaking festival scene guaranteed to enliven up any atmosphere. People can share the music of alternative rock band Callalily and energetic dance sets of four of the country’s best DJs and GEN3 NEXT ACT ambassadors – DJs Mars Miranda, Callum David, Badkiss, and Eric Capili on January 16 while being bathed in a blast of bright and vibrant colors. The revelry is similar to the Indian tradition Holi, a celebration of spring where people throw various colored powders in the air while dancing to music, resulting in an exhilarating experience and visual stimulation.
For a more family-oriented activity, there are variety shows to be graced by popular actor and Cloudfone ambassador Xian Lim featuring games, dance contests, Kalokalike (celebrity look-alike) competition, among others. Registration is free for the four-day event and comes with drinks and treats from the various booths.
Since Globe wants to have something for everyone, it has also lined up more activities in various locations. For the youth, Globe Prepaid is bringing Sponge Cola, Radioactive Sago Project, Taken by Cars, DJ Jess Milner, DJ Aaron Atayde, and DJ Mars Miranda Load Up Session at #GlobePrepaidHangout event at Mango Square on Jan 16. Value brand TM brings its Republikaravan Concert at GaisanoBowlingplex top-billed by Parokya ni Edgar on Jan 17.
The party crowd who cannot make it to the hottest club in Manila may be entertained by some of the country’s hottest DJs at Tattoo’s ElektroMundo at LivSuperclub on January 16 and at City Times Square on January 17 where Valkyrie comes to Cebu. Globe customers can enter for free upon purchase of a mobile Wifi from Globe Mobility or from the various PC shops across the city. They also get a loot bag that contains a bandana and a wristband as well as a Tattoo-branded shot glass which can be used for free drinks at the party. Spotify ambassadors will also roam the venue to educate customers on how cool it is to use Spotify on Tattoo Mobile WiFi or on a Smart phone.
Amid the major activities are pocket events sponsored by Globe Prepaid such as Threadfast 2015 at Parkmall with Chocosci, Urbandub, Small Hands, Franco, Eleyn, Wilabaliw, and other Cebu bands and DJs as well as the Sinulog Royals at Alejandro’s – Century 21.
Meanwhile, Globe Postpaid and Tattoo Nomadic also offer affordable phone and tablet bundles while Globe Prepaid gives out free Sinulog tumblers for those who will load P150 and register to GoSurf50 and a chance to win an overnight hotel stay for 4 at Crimson Resort & Spa when they post and share their photos with #GlobePrepaidHangout. Tattoo@Home, on the other hand, rewards subscribers with a P500 Sodexo gift certificate for every successfully installed broadband application received from January 12 to 18, 2015.
