Zambali Summer is a celebration of love, life, and faith and the freedom to enjoy all of that. It is a music festival that would showcase mainstream bands from the Metro and up and coming local artists from Zambales, with the beautiful beach coast of Zambales as its backdrop.
Zambali Summer will be happening on April 20, Black Saturday, at Brgy. La Paz, San Narciso, Zambales. Show starts at 4:30 PM.
Zambali is derived from the word “Sambali”, which is the original name of Zambales; and also refers to the Zambales’s original natives, the Sambals.
Every summer, most residents of the Metro and Filipinos in general spend their Holy Week away from the city for a well-deserved getaway and spiritual rejuvenation – usually at the beach. For some, this has ripened as tradition. Year after year, major beaches outside of Metro Manila are packed with both locals and tourists alike. Usually, Maundy Thursdays and Good Fridays are spent reliving the true meaning of the Cross, and our salvation. Black Saturdays, on the other hand, has always been the official day when families and friends go out of town to spend time together and unofficially celebrate the resurrection – and have fun!
This year, beach-goers from the Metro can experience Holy Week the Zambali Summer way! The perfect way to experience the summer heat by listening to a wide variety of live bands while bathing in the sunshine, the funky feel of the sand and a cold drink on your hand, all that while supporting the local music scene, advocating for the environment, and supporting the campaign against dangerous drugs.
This beach music festival is headlined by one of the most sought-after rock bands in the country today, Mayonnaise. Other bands who will also join the celebration are Switchblade Manila, Whiskey Version, Gin Rum and Truth, The Black Wolf Gypsies, Hey Moonshine, and many more.
The event is produced by Awesome Events & Productions (AEP) , Rough Stuff Entertainment and Sound Experience Manila (SX Manila).
