MANILA, PHILIPPINES — Wanderland Music & Arts Festival, billed as one of the most anticipated gatherings of local and international indie artists in the Philippines of the year, draws near, and the excitement for this magical event just builds up week after week.
Every year since it was first staged seven years ago, Wanderland has been creating meaningful experiences for its music-loving and the art-appreciating crowd, a following that has grown immensely over the past few years.
For the seventh installment of the festival, which will be even bigger than that of last year, anticipated international indie bands and homegrown indie acts have promised to make each person’s festival experience magical.
But to make every Wanderer’s festival experience more delightful, memorable, safe, and rewarding, Karpos Multimedia partnered with Grab, the leading super app in Southeast Asia, to bring its everyday services to this year’s festival, elevating the crowd’s total festival experience even before the concert happens!
“Experience is an integral part of the millennial lifestyle. They value experiences such as Wanderland Magic more than other things. Grab is helping elevate the Wanderer’s overall festival experience by integrating our everyday services to Wanderland, providing greater convenience all while making the experience more rewarding,” Grab President Brian Cu said.
GrabExpress riders will field the streets of Metro Manila in search of StarWanderer ticket holders to deliver their magical StarWanderer Kits right at their doorsteps! Each kit is packed special and exciting Wanderland merchandise and freebies that are sure to delight the Wanderer who ordered it.
To make it even more exciting Grab will also be providing promo vouchers for those who will be needing express deliveries to the concert grounds via GrabExpress. Wanderers can use the promo code GEMAGIC from March 9 to March 10 to get P100 off on all GrabExpress and GrabAssistant booking requests within the Filinvest City Open Grounds in Alabang, Muntinlupa City.
Sweet, rewarding rides
Grab is also making transportation easier for Wanderers. For the two-day event, Grab will be deploying party buses that will offer Grab users a free ride from Trinoma Mall in Quezon City and SM Makati to make it easier for Grab Wanderers to go down south.
