Star-studded Aliwan Fiesta 2012
() - April 12, 2012 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - KC Concepcion, Angeline Quinto, and Christian Bautista headline this year’s entertainment roster for Aliwan Fiesta when the annual cultural festival’s Pasakalye outdoor concert takes place tonight in a glittering program on Sotto Street, fronting the Aliw Theatre at the CCP Complex on Roxas Blvd.

Hosted by the jocks of 90.7 Love Radio, 101.1 Yes FM and 96.3 Easy Rock, the concert will follow immediately after the opening of the festival costume exhibit at the Little Theater Lobby of the Cultural Center of the Philippines, which will be capped by a fashion show by this year’s candidates for Festival Queen at the CCP’s Liwasang ASEAN. Also performing in the Pasakalye concert are Faith Cuneta, Anja Aguilar and Blakdjak.

Tomorrow, Pinoy Pop Superstar runner-up Bryan Termulo and former South Border vocalists Luke Mejares and Duncan Ramos will be the featured performers during the pageant night in the search for Festival Queen, to be hosted by Love Radio’s top-rating triumvirate — Nicole Hyala, Chris Tsuper and Papa Jack.  

And when the festival dance showdown on April 14 kicks off at the Quirino Grandstand at 2 p.m. in tandem with the grand float parade that will make its way to the Aliw Theater via Roxas Blvd., the major stars of TV5 will be on hand to make the Aliwan Fiesta’s 10th year truly special. Ding Bolanos will helm the coverage to be aired on AKTV Channel 13, with Al Quinn taking on directorial chores for the awarding ceremonies to be aired live on Channel 5 at 9 p.m. TV5’s sports team led by Jason Webb, Manu Sandejas, Cheryl Cosim and Chiqui Roa-Puno will co-anchor the parade with the FM deejays of Manila Broadcasting Company, while Paolo Bediones serves as main host for the awards night. A grand production number fusing neo-ethnic touches with nuances of pinoy rock opens the program, as performed by Bamboo and the Talentadong Pinoy hall of famers. Other artists from the TV5 stable led by Aga Muhlach, Ryan Agoncillo, Derek Ramsay, Lorna Tolentino and Sharon Cuneta have been invited to grace the occasion.

Aliwan Fiesta 2012 promises to be a spectacular cultural extravaganza, with MBC, Star City and CCP gathering the country’s most popular festivals, in cooperation with Manila and Pasay. TV5, which has come in as media partner and co-presenter this year, is pulling all stops to make the grand parade and awarding ceremonies truly star-studded. Aliwan Fiesta is generously supported by Smart Communications, Tanduay Mardi Gras, Alaska Condensada, Coca Cola, Unilab, Air Philippines, Hanabishi, Cherry Mobile, My Juiz, Joy Dishwashing Liquid, Dunkin’ Donuts, M. Lhuillier, Manila Ocean Park and the Atrium Hotel.
