UP Cookout 2017: trailblazing change

SAVE the date as University of the Philippines Cebu’s most awaited and grandest event returns this November 10!

UP Cookout 2017 GUNS N ROSES brings you a night of social relevance as it tackles the different types of violence prevalent in our society.
“UP Cookout 2017 remains steadfast in its nature of being a protest,” said Overall Director Fae Toabi. “It is a platform for the audience to start discussions on socially relevant national issues.”

For its first installation in Cebu, Coke Studio Philippines will bring in nationally-acclaimed hip-hop artist Abra. He is known for his rap songs that speak of social issues such as Isang Ilusyon, Dedma, and ‘King Inang Bayan.

Rock superband Franco – whose roots are traced from the Cebu, will also take the stage. Franco’s hits include Castaway, Song for the Suspect, and Better Days.

Artists Wonggoys, Thinking Chair, Groovematics, Coolie Dreads and the Microphone Commander, and Silingan ni Felicity will also join in the fun as UP Cookout 2017 promotes and supports homegrown music.

Cookout highlights UP talents in five segments: Kantahan, Sayawan, Bandahan, Rampahan and Panulaan. “We want to raise the social issue Cookout brings, through the performances of our very own UP students, as a medium to connect and communicate with the community at large,” Toabi added.

UP Cookout 2017 will be held at the UP Cebu grounds from 6 PM to 6 AM the next day. The event is open to the public. Tickets may be bought at the event venue, or by contacting Lyn Limoran at 0919 470 2755. Visit www.facebook.com/UPCebuCookout/ for more details and updates.
