The Carnival is here!

Carte Blanche 2014 Poster

Carte Blanche: Electric Music Carnival, Davao’s very own electronic music dance festival, is all set to shake the grounds at the Crocodile Concert Park on November 15, 2014.

Manic Nightnings Productions, headed by its Manic Mom, Kat Dalisay, is expecting at least 20,000 ravers from all walks of life from all of Mindanao to be in attendance this year. And just like last year’s first installment, this is a festival to give life to each person’s freedom to express himself or herself.

Mommy Kat, as she is lovingly called by both her team and everyone that attends Manic Nightnings’ events, says that this year’s Carte Blanche is envisioned to be bigger and better than last year. Two large fields at the Crocodile Park will be occupied for the entire production. One will be The Carnival; carnival rides and fun booths will be open to keep the fun level high for everyone. The other field will be The Rave Field where all the dancing will happen.

This year’s lineup of DJs will be as big, if not bigger, as last year’s. The musical styles will be as varied as the carnival colors. House music from Clyde Harris, Reo Mendoza and Erwin Edralin. Tech and techno beats from Callum David and Martin Pulgar. Trap, dubstep and a mix of everything else from Mark Nicosia, Mia Ayessa and Regina Reinoso collectively known as Those Damn Nerds. And all the anthems and big room festival sounds from DJ Surf & Jack Bates, Marc Marasigan, Travis Monsod, Deuce Manila, Ron Poe and Ace Ramos. Davao’s very own DJs will complete the lineup – Tien Batu, Pae Dobles, Jin Chan, Niel Recinto, Uno Tupas, Jack Ripper, Kevin Rage, Brylle Aguirre, Wacky Masbad and DJ Torch.

The hype will be kept going by three of the best MCs in the industry – MC Boo, MC Ronthug and MC Pao.

Carte Blanche’s gates will open at 2PM. The music will also start at the same time.

Tickets are now available at the following locations: Nike Athletic Club branches (Abreeza Ayala Mall, GMall Davao and SM City Davao Annex) and Sneaker Club (Abreeza Ayala Mall). Regular Carte Blance tickets are priced at P2,000 (Full Madness), P800 (SVIP), P400 (VIP), P150 (GA). Sunset Carte Blanche tickets are priced at P500 (SVIP), P250 (VIP), P100 (GA).
