It truly is the revenge of the live gig scene with Justin Bieber, TXT, SB19, SEVENTEEN, Ben&Ben, and more holding concerts in the Philippines within the coming months.
For a time, we thought that live music and concerts would never return, at least not in the foreseeable future. But thanks to a combination of vaccines, low case counts, and increased safety measures, the local concert scene is alive and kicking once more. And based on the performances set to be held in the country this year and next, it’s clear that both local and international acts are ready to play for a live crowd again. If you want to finally experience that live concert scene once more, here’s a running list of the performers coming to the country this 2022 and beyond.
AURORA 2022 (June 10-11)
The Clark Hot Air Balloon Festival show is one of the most anticipated events you can do attend in Pampanga this year. Even if you aren’t into hot air balloons, just seeing the spectacle of them flying is good enough for many. But if flying balloons and the open air isn’t enough for you, there’s also the accompanying music festival. Happening on June 10 and 11, the music festival is almost Coachella-esque in nature as you get to enjoy good music at the open fields of Clark, Pampanga. Confirmed acts include Ben&Ben, Arthur Nery, and Unique just to name a few.
KIM SOOHYUN (June 10)
Don’t you just miss seeing your fave oppas live and in person? Well, this 2022 fan meets and concerts from your fave K-drama stars are happening once again. Up first is this fan meet with actor Kim Soo-Hyun. The event is in partnership with Bench as he is one of their ambassadors. The fan meet, entitled One Extraordinary Day, will be held at the Mall Of Asia Arena on June 10. Check out Bench’s official social media channels on how you can get tickets.
BALCONY ENTERTAINMENT LIVE (June 11)
Balcony Entertainment is home to some of the hottest and most iconic acts in OPM. And this June, the music company is coming together to showcase their talents on a live stage.

Aside from the performances, the event is extra special for Maris Racal as it will also serve as her album launch. Catch the Balcony Entertainment family at the Music Museum on June 11.
ANNE CURTIS (June 11)

Aside from this, Anne is set to stage her highly anticipated comeback concert this June 11. Entitled Luv-Anne!, expect Anne to serve the looks, stage presence, and even some vocals. The concert will be held at the Newport Performing Arts Theater at 8 PM.

Fun fact: Hwang In Youp is set to travel to the country not once, but twice this 2022 for two fan meets. The True Beauty star is set to hold a fan meet in the country on June 19 at the New Frontier Theater. This is in collaboration with BYS as he serves as one of their ambassadors. Then, on September 24, he is set to hold another fan meet at the same venue, his first ever in the country not tied to a brand. But this time, it’s part of his Asia Fan Meeting Tour. From new projects to fan meets, Hwang In Youp’s Filipino fans are eating well this 2022.
MOW’S REOPENING (June 24)
Due to the pandemic, many of our favorite local bars and gig spots had to close, some permanently.
