UNKNWN.Fiesta, the sustainable 14-hour celebration of “music, art, food and beyond” hosted by UNKNWN and produced by CC:Concepts, has been postponed until further notice. According to event organizers, the fiesta, which supposedly would begin on Feb. 22, will no longer push through on its original date. The reason behind the rescheduling is to comply with the strict Department of Health guidelines for the COVID-19 health crisis.
Refunds have also been made available for those who already purchased their tickets.
This comes as additional sad news for art fest goers as the second music fest to be postponed this month. Just last Feb. 8, the Tagaytay Art Beat was also rescheduled due to the Taal eruption.
The fiesta will feature 30 artists, three stages, eco-aware local brands, and a lot of other Filipino classics and fusions—so best believe we’re already keeping our eye out for the new event dates.

On behalf of CC:Concepts, organizers of UNKNWN.Fiesta: It is with heavy hearts that we announce the postponement of our inaugural music festival, UNKNWN.Fiesta due to compliance with the Department of Health’s Official Public Advisory No.7 on Concerts and Other Public Events and Gatherings. With guests coming from different parts of the globe, over a thousand ticket holders and hundreds of crew, we have been left with the only option of postponing UNKNWN.Fiesta. The community’s health and safety is and will always be our top priority. Once the COVID-19 threat is contained and the concerts and public events advisory is lifted by DOH, our events will push forward. With that, we are offering full ticket refunds from February 12 until March 12, which can be redeemed via our ticketing partner, PouchNation. There is also an option to keep your ticket for the next UNKNWN.Fiesta. Merchandise will be up for sale. Email [email protected] for ticketing and follow @unknwn.mnl for merchandise and event announcements. We sincerely apologize for any inconveniences. At the same time, we would like to thank all our partners, sponsors, artists, suppliers, and especially YOU, for supporting and understanding. We are closely monitoring the situation to be able to schedule future show dates and MAKE MANILA DANCE AGAIN. #MakeManilaDanceAgain
Following the continuous outbreak of COVID-19, UNKNWN just announced on their social media platforms that the event will be moved to the first quarter of 2021.

Once again, we thank everyone for their support and understanding these past few weeks. It has been such a trying time for the entertainment industry, and we’re incredibly sympathetic to all affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. After extensive deliberation and thought, we’d like to announce that UNKNWN.Fiesta will be set for Q1 of 2021. We believe that this is the best way for our community to make the most for our first ever festival. Moreover, as we monitor this pandemic, we continue to prioritise the health and well being of our guests. We are still in the process of refunding Fiesta tickets until March 12, 2020 but you’re also welcome to hold on to your existing tickets until then. Once we are fully certain that it is safe, we will resume all our other UNKNWN events lined up for this year. We will see you all on the dance floor soon! #UnknwnFiesta #UnknwnMNL
