How do you feel about this story?


Immerse yourself in the resonating beats of 2023’s grand finale as GNN, a Manila-based production powerhouse, unveils its much-anticipated year-end concert at the dynamic 123 Block in Mandala Park, Mandaluyong City on December 15, 2023 (Saturday), starting at 7 p.m. In a departure from their usual grandeur, GNN is opting for an intimate setting, featuring cherished collaborators like The Ransom Collective and Oh, Flamingo!, both integral to the success of GNN’s sold-out tenth-anniversary concert earlier this year. The lineup further echoes nostalgia, including SOS, Ang Bandang Shirley, and Ciudad – bands pivotal to GNN’s humble beginnings in 2015, when they embarked on the indie scene with bi-monthly shows at Route and Saguijo.

As the year wraps up, GNN Year-End 2023 remains true to its roots, championing the independent music scene and nurturing a sense of community and inclusivity through live performances. This musical extravaganza serves as a testament to GNN’s unwavering dedication to its ideals, evolving as a passion project that resonates with the ever-changing demands of the times.

Reflecting on a year of remarkable shows, GNN orchestrated unforgettable moments in 2023. Highlights included the reunion of Philippine R&B royalty Kyla and Jay-R, Sugarfree’s Sa Wakas album 20th-anniversary celebration featuring Ebe Dancel, and the 25th-anniversary concert of Barbie Almalbis, featuring the reunion of Barbie’s Cradle and Hungry Young Poets. Zark’s Fest 2023, Linya-Linya Land, and an intimate concert by Clara Benin added further brilliance to GNN’s eventful year.

In an international flair, GNN is set to host Taiwanese math-rock outfit Elephant Gym (in collaboration with The Rest Is Noise PH) and Indonesian pop-rock band Reality Club in the Philippines. These headline shows at 123 Block and Balcony Music House underline GNN’s commitment to providing diverse and enriching musical experiences.
