Coming off a successful edition in 2016, the Paradise International Music Festival (Paradise IMF) took a short breather this year but promises a bigger attraction that will give all music fans a huge treat come 2018. Yup, the same event that brought Wiz Khalifa, The Airplane Boys, Rudimental, and of course, Kanye West (fresh off to the Philippines is coming back next year.
Paradise’s organizers, led by Vian Serranilla and Joshua Ylaya, are promising future attendees–whom they call Castaways–a massive and more festive atmosphere, with the announcement of acts set to happen later this year.
“In the 2018 edition, we plan to make it a bigger and better show for all,” said Serranilla. “We’ll make it a spectacle that will have people looking forward to the next shows as soon as they step in the grounds.”
It would be hard to top 2016’s roster of performers, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed Paradise will bring in the heavyweights yet again (Travis Scott/The Weeknd/Drake anyone?) No announcements on who’s going to be part of the festival yet, but at least now we know we have something to look forward to next year already.
