Manila, Philippines; May 2021 –– For more than a year now, all our favorite occasions to spend time with friends and relatives or just to enjoy our own me-time, have been paused indefinitely. All our road trips, food trips, family trips, barkada trips, parties, concerts, and assorted adventures have not been available to us for what seems like forever.
For music-loving Filipinos who have missed the energy rush of attending performances in person, this absence of live entertainment has been distressing. But now, GMovies, together with Upstream, puts that to rest with an electrifying live-streaming experience with the iconic Glastonbury Festival, presented by Globe! One of the most famous and longest-running music festivals in the world, Glastonbury draws the biggest acts and hosts some of music’s most celebrated performances.
Featuring world-renowned artists such as Coldplay, Damon Albarn, HAIM, IDLES, Jorja Smith, Kano, Michael Kiwanuka, Wolf Alice, and more, the Glastonbury Festival is a five-hour global livestream event you wouldn’t want to miss. Scheduled to take place this May 23, 2021, tickets are now available for sale, each costing PHP 1,535.
To purchase tickets, simply download the GMovies app, and select the Glastonbury Festival event from the Home or Stream Now pages. Pay for your ticket via your preferred payment method, and keep note of the event time and date. On the day and time of the event, go to the event’s page or look for it in your “My Shows” tab, and select the Stream Now on the UPSTREAM button.
The Glastonbury Festival is only the first among many unique live events coming to GMovies. “In our mission to become the bridge that provides Filipinos a means to discover incredible shows online, GMovies now offers both streaming of live events and actual purchasing of tickets to live events,” said Janis Racpan, Director for Business Development at Globe. “GMovies users who are avid fans of pop music will be the first ones to enjoy this feature”
Music has helped many Filipinos cope with the challenges of these unprecedented times, and people miss the exhilarating experience of live concerts. Through this initiative and in partnership with show producer Karpos, Globe is continuously working towards enriching the lives and experiences of its subscribers
In addition to livestream events, GMovies also provides a seamless booking service for over 100 cinema locations nationwide and 3rd parties providing online video streaming services.
