Hiraya Music Festival 2022: A Dream Come True
In a vibrant celebration of music and dreams, the first-ever Hiraya Music Festival 2022: A Dream Come True took center stage on September 24, 2022, at the Kaogma Grounds, Capitol Complex, Cadlan, Pili, Camarines Sur. With a dazzling lineup of artists like Rivermaya, Arthur Nery, Nik Makino, Skusta Clee, and talented DJs from Manila, the event attracted an estimated 70,000 enthusiastic concertgoers from all corners of the province.
The festival's name, "Hiraya," derived from an ancient Tagalog word meaning "may your wish come true," perfectly encapsulated its essence - inspiring people to dream big and chase after their aspirations. It was a day filled with excitement, magic, and the promise of endless possibilities.
Behind the scenes, Post Ad Ventures played a pivotal role in bringing this dreamful event to life. As a leading communication, events, and advertising company in Manila, they took charge of the festival's overall execution. From curating an impressive roster of artists to designing captivating stage setups, handling technical aspects, and arranging thrilling gimmicks like the big beach volleyball props that delighted the audience, Post Ad Ventures left no stone unturned to ensure a memorable experience for all the people in CamSur. Post Ad Ventures have allocated approximately a month and a half to prepare and finalize the music festival, from its head in the cloud concepts to its achieved tangible aspects.
However, the success of the Hiraya Music Festival would not have been possible without the wholehearted support of the government of Camarines Sur, spearheaded by Governor Luigi Villafuerte—their commitment and enthusiasm in making this dream event a reality fostered a seamless collaboration between all stakeholders.
