June 10 update: Philippine Independence Day event in Dubai postponed to June 26

Organisers revealed to Expatmedia.net that Piolo will be performing live at Zabeel Hall 2 at 5:30pm. The actor is expected to perform his hit songs. The star-studded lineup also includes Emirati hitmaker Alira, and Filipino stars Jane De Leon and Joshua Garcia.

Alira, whose videos went viral on social media after he shocked audiences at a Dubai concert for perfectly singing a Filipino song, will be on stage from 5pm to regale fans with his original song Take Flight, plus covers of his favorite Filipino songs.

Performances by Piolo and Alira will be followed by a fashion show. Garcia and De Leon, casts of the upcoming Darna: The TV Series, are expected to take the stage after the show.

The Philippine Independence Day celebration in Dubai on June 12 will be a day-long event starting at 10am and will include activities, dance shows, singing showdown, cultural dances and a fair. Entrance is free.

The celebration is presented by Emirates Loves Philippines and Philippine Business Council Dubai and Northern Emirates in cooperation with the Philippine Consulate General Dubai.

“The Philippine Independence Day is one way of celebrating  togetherness with the Filipino community in the UAE, and an opportunity to create a festival full of beautiful memories,” organiser Josie Conlu told Expatmedia.net.

Bobbie Carella, whose Philippine Business Council Dubai and Northern Emirates will be helping organise the event for the first time, promised an “inclusive, truly joyful” Philippine Independence Day celebration.

“It has been nearly three years since the pandemic disrupted our lives. What better way for Filipinos to celebrate ‘back-to-normal’ life in the UAE than by celebrating the Philippine Independence Day in person,” Carella told Expatmedia.net.

“We will integrate a ‘Salamat UAE’ segment on the agenda to show our gratitude to the government for their programmes and policies that ensure the well-being of expat communities, Filipinos included,” she said. ICA/Expat Media
