Dance and fist pump to Zedd and Hardwell at the Road to Ultra Philippines
If dancing is your form of de-stressing then this will surely be good news. Cap-off the work week with a concert-slash-party and go to Road to Ultra. While there, you’ll get to catch Zedd, Hardwell, Getter, Rezz, and other local acts.
Note to all those who already planned to go: the event venue has been changed. Head over to the Mall of Asia Arena instead of the Mall of Asia Concert Grounds. You can’t let the weather rain on your parade.
