Solstice is the longest day of the year and the start of summer.

Closeup is holding the music festival Summer Solstice—12 hours of nonstop summer partying.

The festival was launched March 5 at White Space.

Closeup officials said the music festival would feature both local and foreign artists.

“Closeup has always taken pride in its musical heritage, with iconic songs that have touched the hearts of numerous generations, and with record-breaking events such as Lovapalooza,” said Closeup Philippines brand manager John Imperial. “This year, it’s time to embark on a new adventure—something that has never been done before, something that creates an avenue for people to get even closer.”

Present at the media launch were ABS-CBN’s Enrique Gil, Colleen Garcia and Matteo Guidicelli; GMA’s Rocco Nacino, Enzo Pineda and Steven Silva; Mike Concepcion, Ava Daza, Carla Humphries and Nicole Andersson; bloggers Kryz Uy, Camille Co, Laureen Uy, Vern and Verniece Enciso, David Guison, Seph Cham and Shai Lagarde;  and 89.9 Radio DJs Riki Flores, Andi Manzano, Jessica Mendoza and Suzy Gamboa.

Headlining Summer Solstice is Grammy-winning DJ Afrojack. He has had hit collaborations with Snoop Dogg, Pitbull (“Give me Everything”), Ne-Yo (“Nayer”) and Beyonce (“Run the World”).

Also representing the electronic dance music (EDM) genre are Cedric Gervais, producer of one of the top EDM hits of 2012, “Molly”; Apster; and Italian DJ Alex Gaudino.

Dev, the voice behind “Like a G6” and “Bass Down Low,” and Party Rockers’ Jump Smokers complete the foreign lineup.

Local bands joining the festival are Urbandub, Sponge Cola and Sandwich.

The Closeup Summer Solstice will be on April 27 at the Mall of Asia Open Grounds. Tickets will be available in all Ticketnet, Ticketworld and SM outlets starting March 18.

General admission tickets will be sold at P2,000 and VIP tickets at P5,000.
