Yes! PPOP Con is Finally Happening, Now as a Three-Day Music Celebration

MANILA, Philippines—All roads lead to Pinoy Pop Convention Manila! Following an unexpected postponement, initially set event date last March, the return of the largest Pinoy Pop (PPOP) music celebration is finally happening this July at the City of Firsts, Araneta City.

After a highly-successful inaugural event last year, PPOPCON is back in its second year to showcase Filipino pop culture and music to the delight of its throngs of PPOP supporters, still serving as the ultimate gathering of fans of the country’s thriving PPOP scene, with interactive activities that will bring today’s PPOP idols closer to the fans.

2023 PPOPCON MANILA has been extended from last year’s two-day event to a three-day celebration this year to give attendees more chances to bond with the entire PPOP community.

The PPOPCON MANILA convention will happen from July 14 to 16 with interactive fan engagement activities, dynamic fan booth exhibitions, fan signing events, and other activities in a new exciting location–the electrifying Quantum Skyview at the newly-opened Gateway Mall 2, open to the public for free!

Catch Josh Cullen, 1ST.ONE, ALAMAT, KAIA, and G22 as they take part in the fan signing activity. DIONE, R RULES, DAYDREAM, MONA, VALFER, VER5US, YARA, YES MY LOVE, Z2Z, SMS, BLVCK FLOWERS, ECLIPSE, 6SENSE, and SKOUTS will also deliver energetic performances that PPOP fans can watch for free at the 3-day convention.

The festivities will then culminate with the much-awaited PPOPCON MANILA concert on July 16, 6PM, at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. The concert will feature some of the country’s biggest local acts today: SB19, BGYO, BINI, MNL48, 1ST.ONE, ALAMAT, JOSH CULLEN, FELIP, SHEKI, KAIA, G22, PRESS HIT PLAY, VXON, PPOPGEN, DIONE, CALISTA, YES MY LOVE, and HORI7ON! Delivering electrifying performances on-ground, these performances will also be livestreamed for international fans.

“Expect the 2023 PPOPCON MANILA convention and concert to be filled with fun activities and breathtaking performances that will elevate the PPOP fan gathering experience. This is one big celebration to enjoy the best P-Pop has to offer this year,” Irene Jose, COO of Uniprom Inc (the entertainment unit of the Araneta Group) shared.
