April 11, 2023
A one-of-a-kind music festival awaits this weekend as Clark Aurora Music Festival 2023 is finally happening on April 15-16! If you’re in to jam to today’s hottest and most iconic OPM songs, we’ve prepared a guide for you to know more about the lineup and schedule, venue, tickets, and other important things you need to know.
Clark Aurora Music Festival 2023 is bringing together today’s hottest local acts and OPM icons for 12 straight hours (from 1 PM to 1 AM). For Day 1, prepare to enjoy contemporary hits by Ben&Ben, December Avenue, Arthur Nery, Adie Garcia, Mrld, Lola Amour, and more! Check the schedule here.
If you prefer to listen to old-school OPM music, then you would enjoy Day 2’s amazing lineup with Ely Buendia, Parokya ni Edgar, Kamikazee, Mayonnaise, Sponge Cola, and Silent Sanctuary. The schedule has yet to be announced as of writing.
Clark Aurora Music Festival 2023 will take place at Clark Freeport, Pampanga. To get there, you can drive, commute, or book a ride-hailing service. According to their post on Facebook, you can choose from the following options:
- At SM City Clark, ride a blue taxi on the day of the event (near SMX)
- Book their partner Mabuhay Van Rental in advance by contacting 09158850464 or [email protected]
- Book a Grab upon arriving at DAU Bus Terminal
- Ride a jeepney with the route IE5-Bayanihan-GGLC at Clark Main Gate
For those who will be driving or carpooling, make sure to take note of road closures, follow traffic advisories (and be kind to traffic personnel), and park only at designated parking areas. Illegally parked vehicles will be towed.
As the venue isn’t easy to get to, you can also book one of their official hotel partners to save you from the hassle before and after the program.
The event has made it easier to locate the venue, so all you need is to type Aurora Music Festival 2023 on Google Maps or Waze.
Where to Buy Tickets
Tickets are available via Clark Aurora Music Festival’s website and SM Tickets with three tiers: Silver (P500), Gold (P1,000), and SVIP (P3,000). Prices are exclusive of processing fees and no tickets will be sold on-site. To help you decide, here’s the event venue map.
What to Bring and Prohibited Items
Preparation is key to enjoy the festival, so make sure you’ve brought all the necessities and take note of items that aren’t allowed inside the venue.
First, prepare your printed tickets and ID to ensure smoother entry. Second, bring a hat or cap, umbrella, sunblock, and sunglasses to protect yourself from the sun. Speaking of protection, don’t forget your face mask and alcohol, too! Third, apart from wearing comfy shoes and clothes, it’s safe to pack extra clothing and some towels in case you get all sweaty.
Lastly, bring your own tumblers. Outside food and drinks and plastic or glass bottles (along with other items) are prohibited, so make sure you don’t forget your tumbler to keep yourself hydrated at all times. There will be free hydration stations at the concert grounds, so you don’t have to worry about refills!
