[5 November 2014] During the Masskara Love Dance party, festival goers were able to listen to awesome beats and crazy tunes from some of the country’s top EDM artists, including Martin Silverio, Chris Carter, Marc Marasigan, Miguel Rubin, and Tom Taus.

Florencio and Meriam Manago from Pasay City were lucky enough to win Smart Postpaid’s Masskara Festival Fly-Off promo by simply subscribing to one of Deezer’s Music Packs using their postpaid accounts. Their first time to enjoy the Masskara Festival, the couple said they had an “unforgettable experience” thanks to Smart.

Couple Florencio and Meriam Manago are still talking about their first-ever MassKara Festival experience in Bacolod City days after they returned home to Malibay in Pasay City.

“Before flying to Bacolod, we were really excited as we looked forward to experience the festival,” shared Florencio, 44, and Meriam, 45, who were blessed with three daughters. “In our 23 years of married life together, this is something that we will never ever forget.”

The couple, who said the Bacolod trip was their first to the Negros Occidental capital, got the opportunity to attend the festival after Florencio won in the Masskara Festival fly-off promo from global music streaming app Deezer, leading travel search app Skyscanner, and wireless services leader Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart).

The promo was opened to users who signed up for a Data Premium Plan with FREE Mobile Surfing or any one of Smart Postpaid’s Deezer Flexibundles. Florencio, who was convinced to subscribe to the service by his nephew Ramil Guerrero, a safety engineer, is among the 18 million global active users of Deezer.

The couple’s prizes included airfare to and from Bacolod, hotel accommodations for three days and two nights and VIP tickets to the Masskara Love Dance event, a musical festival held on October 17 as a MassKara highlight which drew a crowd of more than 8,000 music and EDM (electronic dance music) lovers, who partied the night away.

Music festival

 

Festival-goers were able to enjoy a music-filled experience brought by Smart Postpaid and Deezer during the Masskara Love Dance 2014 event held during Bacolod City’s annual festival.

During the Masskara Love Dance party, festival goers were able to listen to awesome beats and crazy tunes from some of the country’s top EDM artists, including Martin Silverio, Chris Carter, Marc Marasigan, Miguel Rubin, and Tom Taus.

They were also treated to a full set by Deezer ambassadors The Zombettes, composed of duo Ornussa Cadness and Sanya Smith, during the Deezer segment of the party.

Meanwhile, those who were on-ground were able to exciting freebies such as cool masks and shirts from the Deezer booth when they showed the Deezer app on their phones.

“Whether our subscribers’ passions are travel or music, Smart Postpaid and Deezer are there to provide them with the best and most unique experiences so they can ‘live more’ with the leader in mobile,” said Kathryn Carag, Postpaid Marketing Head at Smart.

‘Unforgettable experience’

 

During the Masskara Love Dance 2014 event in October, partygoers were able to enjoy pumped-up music and never-ending beats courtesy of the Deezer booth, where they also got free masks whenever they showed the Deezer app on their phones.

Their trip to Bacolod gave the couple an opportunity to explore the cultural and other attractions of the city, including the food offerings Negrenses are famous for. “We really enjoyed eating Lechon Bacolod, which costs only P450 a kilo,” they said.

Florencio, who is familiar with various kinds of cars and other vehicles, said he was amazed at the sounds and lights dancing to the beat of the music coming from parked cars in a section of the roadside during the festival. It was truly a thrilling experience, he said.

“We owe to Smart our unforgettable experience,” said Meriam, as her husband reiterated: “We had great fun and we were so lucky that Smart gave us this opportunity to have this memorable lifetime experience, all for free!”
