AFTER a three-year hiatus, the much awaited Hydro Manila Festival will be making its comeback this August for a bigger and better celebration of music, water, and life.

The music festival will take place on August 26 at the SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds.

Splashmobs, a term used to refer to Hydro Manila’s loyal patrons, will be having the time of their lives as the organizers have curated an extraordinary lineup that will take the stage by storm.

Attendees of the festival will be jamming with some heart-pounding performances from the Philippines’ most sought-after musical acts who will be headlining this year’s Hydro Manila Festival.

These include Filipino rock bands Kamikazee, Silent Sanctuary, and Urbandub. Rocking the stage alongside them are rappers Gloc-9, Flow-G, Al James, Kiyo, and O $ide Mafia.
