For several months now, you’ve probably seen poll questions on social media about Closeup Forever Summer music festival. Closeup gave partygoers the control to this summer’s freshest party- from the theme, to what people wanted to wear, the time and place, and the music. Indie or EDM party? Outdoor or indoor party? Carnival theme or beach party? After months with 500,000 people who participated on social media, Closeup finally announced last Wednesday, February 26, 2014, the details, including three foreign DJs and four local DJs as the acts, for this year’s Closeup Forever Summer music festival.


Indeed the public has spoken – mostly through Facebook and Twitter.  “After several polls and asking for everyone’s opinion on things like the theme, venue, genre, and artists, Closeup brings back Closeup Forever Summer with a beach-themed, Electronic Dance Music (EDM) party set in outdoorsy Circuit Makati,” said Closeup Brand Manager, Gem Laforteza.

As expected, the people’s choice to headline Closeup Forever Summer is Alesso whose sets are among the most popular at the world’s largest music festivals such as Tomorrowland, Ultra Music Festival and the Electrid Daisy Carnival (EDC).  This famous Swedish DJ has collaborated with producers Sebastian Ingrosso, Calvin Harris, and One Republic resulting to unforgettable tracks like “Calling”, “Years”, “If I Lose Myself”, and “Under Control”.


Joining Alesso are DJs Helena and Deniz Koyu. Helena is one of EDM’s rising stars with her progressive, electro, and house beats.  She has topped dance charts in Australia, cracked the Top Ten on Beatport, and has played the most popular stages around the globe, headlining Ultra Music Festival’s main stage last year.  Big-room banger, Deniz Koyu is behind some of the most popular remixes to artists like Zedd (‘Spectrum’), Mike Snow (‘Pretender’), David Guetta (‘Just One Last Time’), Krewella (‘Live For The Night’), and Fedde Le Grand (‘So Much Love’). His recent anthem “Ruby” has been smashing up the Beatport charts lately, amassing support from the scene’s top DJs.

Completing the lineup are local club favorites DJs Ace Ramos, Mars Miranda, Martin Pulgar, and Marc Naval.

Now, I’m sure you’re as excited as I am!!! I can’t wait to dance to Alesso’s beats! 😀 See you? 😀 Let’s get together to create the summer party to remember forever at Closeup Forever Summer!
