Purveyr Exclusive: A Comprehensive Guide to Sinulog 2013

Sure you've heard the news about Sinulog street parties being banned. That's not too bad. Sinulog is a religious activity after all and the whole point you're going out there is to conservatively honor and observe the tradition, right? Wrong. Of course not. That's not what put it on the tourism map and most definitely not the reason why you are going. You're gonna be out there to have some crazy fun and enjoy  the company of Cebu. That's why Purveyr has got you a comprehensive guide to all the revelries and goings-on for the Sinulog weekend. Know where to roll, pre-parties and all after the jump.


Lifedance Sinulog 2013

This figures to be the biggest party to start the weekend. Endorsed by the Department of Tourism, circus-themed outdoor party Life Dance brings in international DJs headlined by Joachim Garraud, pioneer of live audio-visual 3D party experience he dubs as the Alien Invasion. This event will be held at the Cebu Boardwalk, North Reclamation Area. Ticket outlets, payment terms, and all related at their Facebook. Also, a demo of Joachim Garraud's show here. Trippy dope.


Sinulog Blastoff and Threadfest

Cebu Grand Convention Center will be blasting this time of the year with a double-feature presented by Sonic Boom Philippines. That list of bands will surely to rack up a power-packed entertainment. Threadfest, a collective product showcase featuring some of the leading local lifestyle apparel brands will also be held here. More details on their events page.

Sinulog XS

This is some unique mix of an event as Vans and One Skatepark present an indoor skate competition and a music festival at he Amnezia Entertainment Complex on Saturday. From noon til 5 is the skate competition. Witness their hustle, compete yourself, or just have some plain fun with the Vans skateboarding team. Thereafter til early dawn : Nix Damn P, Supermikki, Ace Ramos. Need I say more?


Sinulog Invasion

The heart and soul, the main event. Miss any other day except Sunday or you've never been to Sinulog at all. The street parties, the colors, the booze and all. Sunday is the day. Arguably the biggest, most wildest street party is Sinulog Invasion which happens at Baseline. Noon til late, book it. These guys from Rhipstop and Spectrum brought it down last time out and this time promises another one. Watch how it went last time through the lens of Out of Scratch in the video below.


Of course you'll co clubbing. There are a number of clubs holding their Sinulog party series. Here are some you might want to hit, or better yet hit 'em all.


VUDU starts its party series on Thursday actually and it collaborates with manila's top clubs in this string of events. Something to definitely consider is Sunday's episode when Yellow Fever, the Vegas DJ duo that rocked Tagaytay Electronica Festival, spins. More details on the events page.


New club Barcode is in it for Sinulog too and it has its in-house festivities too. The club's Sinulog series starts with a ladies' night on Wednesday as it leads to Sunday with prizes to conclude the festivities. More details on their Facebook.
