PPOPCON will offer fans a conference at the New Frontier Theater, followed by a concert at the SMART Araneta Coliseum, which fans can also attend live, making it one of the most anticipated entertainment events in the Big Dome since 2020. Fans will be allowed inside the venue for the hybrid performance, which will also be live-streamed online, allowing fans to see their favorite singers up close or from the comfort of their own homes.

The concert will then be headlined by some of the biggest stars in the Philippine music business right now, including SB19, MNL48, BGYO, BINI, Alamat, 1st.One, Press Hit Play, and 4th Impact. Along with these well-known idol groups, up-and-comers such as VXON, KAIA, DAYDREAM, G22, and others will perform on the PPOPCON stage.
“P-Pop is quickly gaining international attention and many fans are recognizing the talent and passion of many P-Pop acts. Through PPOPCON, we are celebrating the growing P-Pop community through the first event of its kind right here at the City of Firsts,” said Andhie Salutin, Project head of PPOPCON.
“PPOPCON marks the return of live entertainment and a return of audiences to this type of event since the start of the pandemic,” Irene Jose, COO of Uniprom, the entertainment unit of the Araneta Group said.
“We are excited to welcome fans back to the home of entertainment—Araneta City. We promise them that they will have the time of their lives at the PPOPCON; not only can they interact with their idols and other fans, they’ll also experience something that we’ve been missing for a long time, live music! And they’ll get to enjoy it in the country’s leading live entertainment venue of choice, the Araneta Coliseum!”
Concert ticket prices start at just P1,000. Both convention and concert tickets can be purchased at www.ticketnet.com.ph
Given the anticipation, safety of the fans who will physically attend the event is still given utmost priority. With the Big Dome having been awarded a Safety Seal by the local city government of Quezon, Araneta City continues to implement the strictest health and safety guidelines throughout the City of Firsts. “The health and safety of the fans are always a top priority for us, that’s why with the return of live entertainment, we’ve intensified health and safety standards that we have implemented here in Araneta City since the start of the pandemic. We are committed to a safe, healthy, and fun experience for everyone who’ll attend PPOPCON,” Jose concluded.
After a long vacation of live music since the Pandemic, Fans of Philippine Pop and entertainment would definitely love to welcome this kind of event with happiness and excitement. PPOPCON foreshadows what is to come for Philippine pop music, as well as the resurrection of concerts and live entertainment in the country.
