Worry no more, as Pinoy Seoul is here to give you a list of things to prepare and add to your pre-festival checklist.
Plan how you’ll get to and leave the venue
The SM Festival Grounds is a relatively new venue for concerts and events. Make sure to plan how you’ll get there for a hassle free trip to the venue. If you’re commuting, you can use the guide on how to reach ASEAN Concert Grounds as both venues are just right beside each other. Regardless of where you’re coming from, you can get off at LRT-1 Baclaran station and ride a jeep going to Mall of Asia Arena via Diosdado Macapagal Boulevard. Ask the driver to drop you off at Bradco Street and walk your way to the SMDC Festival Grounds.
Bring your essentials!
The venue is a massive open space, and shades and tents can be limited due to the number of people attending. Make sure to bring your raincoat if you feel like it’s going to rain, a power bank for your phone, a medicine kit in case of emergency along with your face mask, as COVID-19 is still very much present, and, of course, pocket money for your budols and the food you’ll buy inside the venue.
Have enough sleep before the event
HITC is a two-day fun-filled event that will drain you emotionally, mentally, and physically. Be ready for long queues everywhere, scorching hot weather, hours of standing and walking, and unlimited jumping and partying! Having enough sleep will help you survive the day. We don’t want you to end the day early because you’re tired already, right?
Make sure to eat and drink your vitamins before entering the venue
Prepare to seize your day by having a full stomach and healthy immune system. Although HITC organizers assured that there will be booths that will sell food and drinks, it is still much better to come ready. Make sure to check HITC Manila’s official social media accounts for updates regarding the venue map and other guidelines.
Enjoy and have fun!
After making sure that you’ve checked everything from your list, prepare your most comfortable OOTD and head your way to HITC in Manila 2022! Written by Thea Marie Templanza Thea is a Broadcasting student from PUP Manila.
