Two days ago, the Philippine record label Wavy Baby, co-founded by James Reid, announced that it will be held next year in conjunction with the Sinulog Festival or Santo Nino Festival, a religious and cultural festival in Cebu held annually during the third week of January.
Now the label has unveiled most of the line-up for the January 13-14 festival, which will take place in Mandaue City’s North Reclamation area. The main headliner and one other prominent artist have yet to be announced, but confirmed performers for the festival include ex-Wonder Girl Sunmi, US R&B singer Pink Sweat$ and Korean pop-rock band The Rose. They will be joined by Australian electronic duo Bag Raiders and Filipino bands Ben&Ben and December Avenue.
As expected, many Careless Music artists are also in the line-up: Reid himself, Lesha, Jolianne and Massiah. They are joined by new signers SOS, Destiny Rogers and August Wahh.
