UP Fair 2013 - Day 6 (Speak UP: Loud, Proud, and Unbound)
Last February 16 was the sixth and final installment of UP Fair 2013. I was particularly glad that I chose to go on the last day, because the lineup that night was completely compact and definitely worth the 100-peso entrance ticket.
The weather appeared to be cooperative this time around, as compared to last year, which left the Sunken Garden in a state of disarray, drenched and slippery in all its muddy glory. It was relieving to find that the crowds seemed relatively tamer than the one I encountered the previous year (though I’m not sure if it’s because of stricter security or the absence of the Jumping Jologs, or so they’re called).
Anyway, the Saturday lineup consisted of the following acts, among others:
Performing late into the evening were also some popular Fliptop artists like Abra, Loonie, Apekz, Mike Swift, and Rjay and Alex of LDP.
I didn’t get to finish the entire thing because I was already drained by the time the Fliptop artists started performing onstage (That time, Neil and I actually attempted riding the Octopus again, and as expected, he still screamed himself shitless, and hung onto the “safety” bars for dear life, haha. Our heads were spinning by the time the ride was over). I’m still happy that my UP Fair experience was better than last year’s, though I’d probably be happier if my high school friends could join me next time! :D
P.S. One sweet thing that Neil did that day was wear the exact same clothes as he did when we went to UP Fair last year, as if to commemorate our second time attending the same event together. :)
