Now, off to the line-up. Perhaps one of the biggest music announcements this year is the official music debut of award-winning actor Elijah Canlas. Headlining this year’s The Rest Is Noise show, the Gameboys star is currently under the wing of Island Records Philippines and will be performing using his mononym, elijah, for the first time as a rapper-producer. Just earlier this month, Elijah received critical acclaim for his performance in the Summer Metro Manila Film Festival entry About Us But Not About Us, for which he won a special jury prize.

Filipino rappers and activists BLKD and Calix (collectively known as Sandata) will also grace this year’s TRIN show. Their first live event since 2020, the duo’s highly anticipated performance of their collaborative album Kolateral is something to look forward to. Kolateral has been hailed as one of the best music from the last decade due to its powerful and enduring message about the injustices and violence of the drug war.

TRIN’s 2023 lineup also features ena mori, the only Filipino act at this year’s South by Southwest (SXSW) music festival in Austin, Texas, who is known for her dreamy electronic pop sound. Aly Cabral’s experimental and electronic pop alter-ego, T33G33, will also be performing. Alt-rock newcomer Hey June! will showcase their unique sound alongside LONER, a two-step and garage music producer. Pedicab, an iconic and genre-defying dance-rock act with multiple hits to their name, will also take the stage.

The Rest Is Noise prides itself in fostering a thriving sense of community, culture, and inclusivity. It is home to the annual Summer Noise and All Of The Noise music festivals, which highlight the rich and diverse backgrounds, cultures, and styles of music artists from home and abroad, championing both emerging and established music-makers.

In 2020, TRIN also launched a digital publication that puts the spotlight on Asian music from around the world and co-founded ASEAN Music Showcase Festival, a collaborative regional conference festival that aims to showcase music artists and communities from Southeast Asia.

Pre-sale tickets are available at PHP 700 for limited quantities only, and regular tickets are priced at PHP 800. Tickets are now via this link. The Rest Is Noise 36 is happening on May 26, Friday at Balcony Music House in Makati City.
