Wondering What You've Missed At This Year's Exception Music Festival?

You know what they say, you will forever wonder how it feels like being in a party you thought of going but didn't and missing more than half of your life! 

Attendance and temperature soared high to the mids of almost cold winds of December as all roads led to the open fields of 26th and 7th streets of Bonifacio Global City, Taguig to celebrate Bigfish International's first ever biggest outdoor music experience - Exception Music Festival 2012 held Saturday, November 24th!

Most of my friends were already there by the time the huge gate opened at 4-ish (tho I think I was still snoozing that time, LOL!) but as soon as I got up 8pm, my veins were all excited on how the field would actually look like - imagining 3 massive stages! 0_0 

On a traffic at a near stand-still on a Saturday night, I met with Inan at the gate around past 11 to get our VIP passes

Please excuse me on those photos above. LOL! Not sure if I was nervously excited to finally get in or got photog-skills-rusty shit or both (LOL!) But there on VIP greeted us with her wonderful smile is Bigfish's Account Executive Unika Zapanta

Festivalgoers inside were all loud and sounded like they were all having kuraaayzie-fun, that I could't get a hold of myself and wanting to join them that minute! 

Aside from the massive stages awesome sell-out crowd, aural outdoor music experience were a full-blast with booths and stops for ATM machines with first-aid and security beside it; all cool stuff like t-shirts and lanyards and more Exception Music Festival merchandise you can buy for a reasonable price; washroom areas and phone-charging stops; and food & drinks lounge - all the chill-zones and comfort you can get! 

And yes, a free Road-Trippin' Photo Booth with a 1965 Mustang! 

We met up with my blog's Bigfish EMF x The Manila Urbanite 2 VIP passes giveaway winner Josh Arcega and 2nd place winner Yuri Chan, with friends Ranj De Chavez and Sam

Festivalgoers were all blown away by 27 performances of the hottest foreign and local DJs to bands with a fusion of the biggest music artists like BT, James Zabiela, MatZo, W&W, TyDi, Andy Moor and EDX!

On Live Stage performing were Parokya ni Edgar, Sandwich, Elmer Dado, Gruppo Tribale, Techy Romantics, Sandwich, 6 Cycle Mind, Imago and Pedicab. Truly a real moment of magical fusion of talent and awesome music!

We all had the most glittery-sweat fun and kuraaayziest moves at Freedom Music stage! 

Of course, this wouldn't be complete without the (READ: Borta! Ahehe) Bigfish' EDM & trance enthusiast Jason Tomas!  - looking good huh? ^_^

Everyone gathered at the huge Ministry of Sound Stage and the outdoor music fest experience was ended with a surreal great sound and awesome fireworks!  

It was totally orgasmic...
