Earlier during the outbreak, livestreaming has emerged as an emergency support system for the flailing entertainment industry across the country. Musicians across every genre are broadcasting sets from their bedrooms on platforms such as Facebook Live, YouTube and Instagram alongside donation links to their PayPal or GCash.
Legion Music Festival has partnered with BenMon’s Premium Craft Beer for another virtual show called, Online Inuman Manila! A massive Zoom party featuring some of the top local artists performing on screen such as Kiyo, Because, Ace Ramos, David Ardiente, Angel Villaronte, Hoest, Machussi and more.
“This is not our ideal party to launch our brand actually. But in times like this, you need to be more creative to be able to survive.” Benik Monterola says, founder of BenMon’s Premium Craft Beer and the current Marketing Director of Legion Music Festival.
“Last month we organized Kyline Alcantara’s online concert and now we want to bring it to the next level. A lot of people are doing it already especially in other countries. Now we want to introduce this concept here in Manila… to embrace this kind of new normal for party goers. Those who misses going to clubs so much.. This is something we’d love to bring here to uplift the spirit animals of every Filipinos.” Benik said.
Online Inuman Manila will be open for everyone. Link of the Zoom Room will be posted on Legion Music Festival’s Facebook page.
