What’s Cookin’ at UP Cookout 2016?

UP COOKOUT 2016 Highlights

The annual UP Cebu Cookout happened last November 11th at UP Cebu, and it was a total circus – a complete circus of fun, music, food, and “real talk”.

It was not just about bands playing music all night long. It’s something deeper than that. The event’s cause for this year was to urge the millennials to go beyond the walls of cyberspace.

This year’s theme also takes a stand against historical revisionism and the need to be responsible for every letter we type, for every tweet we send and every comment we post.

Home-grown creatives and talents were showcased in different segments of the event. The segments are the following: Bandahan“Masquerade”, Sayawan“Feast of Fools”, Kantahan“Carnival Calls” and Rampahan “The Prestige”.
