PHOTOS: “BIGFISH Manila Innovation WHITE 2012”

Dubbed as the country’s biggest musical congregation of white-clothed clubbers, “BIGFISH Manila Innovation WHITE 2012” happened at World Trade Center last June 23. #InnovationWHITE’s lineup is a who’s who of the most promising acts in electronic music today. That includes Cosmic Gate, Myon & Shane54, Bobina, Emma Hewitt, John Paul Lee and Chris Raeuber.

I arrived at Starbucks Mall of Asia around 6PM, waiting for a companion (plus my blog contest winner) to the party.  The shindig starts around 10PM but we arrived around 9PM at World Trade Center. I actually brought a backpack with me because we're going to Batangas right after the party :) I have to be honest, I like party-ing but I don't know anything about trance music so this experience is new to me. This is also the biggest party venue I've been too.

Around 11PM, the presscon is just started for Cosmic Gate, Myon & Shane54, Bobina, Emma Hewitt, John Paul Lee and Chris Raeuber. They're from Germany, Australia, Hungary & Russia! Emma Hewitt is a stunner :)

VIP entrance has this icy feel to it.

Myon & Shane54 are already spinning!

with bloggers Cristelle Torres, Jing Javier & Aileen Viedad.

superb laser lights!


there are some fireworks too :)

time for the main show! :)

the LED monitor told us to "scream" and get loud! :) Of course we all obliged but it said "not enough" so we screamed some moooreee!

... and then it says, "Audience Authentication Confirm" and then a massive display of lights & fireworks filled the venue.

Then, the duo, Cosmic Gate came out! they're my instant favorites. at 2AM, I feel still energetic & pumped-up because of their music. When I got home, I downloaded some of their music & put it in my Samsung Galaxy Note :))

German DJ/producer duo Cosmic Gate made the global dance community snap to attention when they jumped 43 places to land on No. 19 of DJ Mag’s Top 100 for 2009.

Me and Aileen catch some confetti and made some wish! :))

My second glass of SanMig Light for the night but I felt, I drank more than that! This photo was taken around 3AM by someone who help us when he saw us having a hard time taking self-pics. :) The other bloggers leave already.

That s'omeone' approached me again & he's saying something to my face, but I can't hear it. He whispered to me that he want to borrow my DSLR. He looks decent so I let him, good thing he give it back to me haha. If I'm 'normal' I don't think I would let him 'touch' my things! That 3 pics above are taken by him. He tried to start a conversation with me, but of course I can't hear him hehe :)

As the party progresses, I upload photos to my Instagram account. Good things all my #InnovationWhite-related photo uploads are liked more than 100 times. Yey :)

Around 3:30AM, our companion for the Batangas roadtrip is already texting me, but we want to party more! :)) After 10 more minutes we had to leave. Me and Aileen felt so bitin! This is my first ever BIGFISH party and it was so surreal. It's a different kind of high! I think I lost a few pounds dancing, haha.

The party is well-planned and organized! The laser lights is awesome, the fireworks are great, the crowd is posh & upscale. There's no untoward incidents happened too. Well, I'm looking forward for the next party, I heard there's BIGFISH Innovation Black coming. Yep! I want it badly :)
