Here comes the post-concert depression after being in the wildest Wanderland last March 4, 2017. Known for being the biggest indie music arts festival, Wanderland stayed true to its theme: the jungle.

 

Wanderland 2017

For its 5th year, they brought in various international and local artists, such as Yuna, HONNE, LANY, UDD, Gab and John of Urbandub, Lola Amour and many more. The Temper Trap was the main headline, who gave us the feels and a throwback to the very first Wanderland in 2013.

Bambanti Festival 2017: The Pride Of Isabela (Photo Essay)

Bambanti Festival is the official festival of the Province of Isabela.  Held annually in the month of January, the award-winning festival has become a key factor in helping to build a cultural identity for the residences of Isabela.

People flock from all corners of Isabela to celebrate their rich agricultural heritage in song-and-dance, and a little friendly competition.

 

Bambanti42

The festival derives its name from the Ilocano word for “scarecrow”, and the Bambanti have become the iconic symbol for the farming communities of Isabela.  Its meaning is emblematic of the historic ties farmers have with scarecrows and their crops, and represent the diligence and resoluteness of the people of Isabel.

Festivities start on the 23rd of January, culminating in a show-stopping extravaganza on the 28th.
