Glorietta Acitivity Center Gets a 'Glo Up' with HONNE and JOAN

Through the years, the Glorietta Activity Center has become the go-to place for family-friendly fun events, mall concerts by local and foreign artists, launches, and unique food fairs and product exhibits. As Glorietta unveils its new look, it has also redesigned the Activity Center to make it an even more exciting venue for entertainment and must-attend events in the city.

With an area of more than 1,000 sqm complemented by a giant 5x12-meter indoor LED backdrop meant to enhance the visual experience of mallgoers, one can expect nothing but the best events in the new Glorietta Activity Center.

The wait for the first glimpse of its new look is over, as it Awakens Amazing with a three-day indoor festival—Glo Up Fest. The festival kicks off on November 7, with a ceremonial  Christmas Tree lighting to usher in the spirit of the season, followed by the much-awaited live performances of international electro-pop artists and festival crowd-drawer HONNE and Arkansas-based indie-pop sensation joan, who are also set to light up the stage at other Ayala Malls in Metro Manila in the following days.

Electro-pop duo HONNE is returning to Manila once again. HONNE's James Hatcher and Andy Clutterbuck are known for their songs, "Location Unknown," "Day 1," and "Crying Over You."
Arkansas-based group joan, Alan Thomas and Steven Rutherford, are famous for their singles “I Loved You First”, “Love Somebody Like You" and “Tokyo”.

 On November 8, its Game Time, as the Glorietta Activity Center is set up with different game challenges and video consoles. Local young talents come to the fore as it hosts a concert at 5pm, with performances by up and coming artists Bea Lorenzo, TALA, FERN., Lola Amour, and Autotelic.

The third day of Glo Up Fest features content creators who are making waves in the online scene. Audiences can learn a lifestyle thing or two as they enjoy the workshops and friendly challenges posed to their favorite online celebrities starting at 3pm. Wil Dasovich and Benedict Cua will show off their bartending skills with a
“make your own cocktail” challenge. Janina Vela will share her top beauty tips, while sisters Vern and Verniece Enciso will give a talk about fashion and style. Fans of vloggers Making it Happen get a chance to hear the duo talk about travel and their experiences, while members from The Good Trade, a zero-waste + sustainable platform, will share ideas on sustainability. 

The Glo Up of the activity center continues with more events until the end of the year! Catch well-loved indie folk band Ben & Ben with Ebe Dancel, Johnoy Danao, and Bullet Dumas for a show-stopping live performance, a spectacular Christmas LED Show to celebrate the festive season, and the Department of Tourism’s Metro Yummy Picks—a 3-day gastro-event meant to establish Metro Manila as the ultimate food hub and culinary capital of the country. 

Luke Lee, General Manager of Glorietta, says that the Activity Center’s “glo up” is part of the Glorietta refresh project, which started with the launch of Japan Town, a series of  unique dining concepts situated at the Top of the Glo, and the new Food Choices, which features over 30 amped-up options meant to suit any type of craving. “We’re very excited about all the projects we launched, and our customers can expect more amazing additions to come in next year!"

With the reopening of the new Glorietta Activity Center, it is once again the go-to destination for fun and exciting events in the metro. “The vibrant new look of Glorietta is designed to give our customers a levelled-up malling experience with our wide selection of well-curated dining, shopping, and entertainment offerings,” adds Mr. Lee.
