La Union it is! San Juan, La Union is a paradise for surfers. With the pristine waves coming from the West Philippines Sea ( formerly known as the South China Sea), this province is blessed with a wide variety of beach resorts, hospitable locals and most of all mouth watering cuisines. The name La Union indicates the union of towns from different provinces located in Ilocos Sur and Pangasinan.
Surf and Music Festival 2012 will be moving officially to the surfing capital of the north, Barangay Urbiztondo, San Juan La Union!
This statement is regarding the announced change of venue for the Aloha Boardsports Surf & Music Festival 2012.
Due to unavoidable challenges that would compromise the Surf & Music Festival experience for surf lovers and music fans, organizers for the event have decided to move the festival from Bgy. Balaoi, Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte to a more accessible venue — Bgy. Urbiztondo, San Juan, La Union.
“We are deeply sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused our loyal festival-goers. Despite all efforts to ensure that we are able to push through with the original plans, we really did not want to diminish the experience that our participants seek for an event as anticipated as the Aloha Boardsports Surf & Music Festival,” shares Paolo Misa, Vice President of Aloha Boardsports. “Regardless of these challenges, we look forward to giving participants the same awesome surf and music experience everyone is looking forward to.”
The festival date remains unchanged and is still slated for October 31 to November 3, 2012 with featured beginner and pro surf competitions, and a 3-night concert headlined by Wolfgang, Tropical Depression, Sandwich, Pedicab, Razorback, and Taken by Cars.
More details will posted soon. Now, it’s better to set those schedules and block your calendars as Surf and Music Festival in La Union will be an awesome beach party for all of us! Save the date,October 31- November 3, 2012!
