Hennessy Artistry Manila Halo 2014–another year of global art of mixing music, party and drinks–tonight January 24 in SM Aura’s Samsung Hall

Hennessy Artistry Halo Key Visual
Its another year for Hennessy Artistry Manila Halo this 2014, when this event comes here in Manila, I can start feel that its already the new year, it’s the most awaited music party event because of its awesome unique concept of mixing different musicians and artist with different music backgrounds to jam one another in one big event. I attended their party event for the 1st time in 2010 and then my 2nd was last 2012, but my experience is the best during the 2012 Hennessy Artistry event in Newport Mall in Resorts World Manila, I went to the venue so late, but I noticed that the party just started at around 1am, everyone are still energized and the music DJ still give a lot of dose of club music that give massive boost to the party goers who loves to drink Hennessy.

The event for this year is considered to be 2013 event, because last year, the scheduled was set to Novemeber 2013, but then our country faced the wrath of the strongest typhoon in the world named Yolanda, the typhoon left us with many homeless people and also death. Hennessy decided to postpone their event and then they coordinated with the Philippine Red Cross to help them for their relief and then the Hennessy team used their online channels to shout out for help and support the relief effort.

And now, this January 24, 2014, they brought back the event and it will be hosted in SM Aura’s Samsung Hall. To get VIP access and free invites, go to www.hennessyartistrymanila.com .
and also at Facebook, Hennessy Philippines, on Instagram and Twitter @HennessyPH.

I remember that I failed to attend 2 previous Hennessy event, but last 2013, I told myself that I should be there and witness how the party goes. From my observation, this party rocks! because of the non stop partying, music, surprises and over flowing of Hennessy drinks. The event is for invited people only and I’m so lucky that I’m still included in their list and been invited every year. Ohhh thank you Hennessy… this will be my 4th year in helping to promote the event also join the party! cheers to you for another year!

Hennessy is very memorable to me, because I got drunk years ago for drinking too much of it… so guys..drink moderately and be responsible, I already learned my lesson and after that…I am now careful and a responsible alcohol drinker.

I’m glad that Hennessy introduced to us their “global art of mixing” – now we can mix Hennessy with our favorite flavor and drinks..my favorite is a mix with ginger or apple.. others still love the lime with Coke, while others still love to drink it purely. But you should try the mix version because it added more flavor that can suit you to your best pleasure.

Last year..I love the mix with apple..but today..I start to love their ginger mix flavor.
Now I need to learn on how to make my own at home…oh well..time for some GoogleFu powah!

update :
after some google-fu… I finally found the recipe, here it is: http://www.hennessyartistrymanila.com/artistry/hennessyvsginger.html

Okay let’s talk about the performers of this year’s Hennessy Artistry Manila Halo 2014
Their venue for this year is in SM Aura’s Samsung Hall, I’ve been there before but the set up is theater type, I think they will just remove the seats and convert the hall into a party venue, my imaginations are creating its own set up and I can see that there might a big stage in the middle, elevated platforms, lots of lights, long tables and also projectors to stream live view of the main event.

here are our performers for this year.

Kimkat Poster Jessica Milner Poster
Headlined by the best International DJ Duo: KimKat also known as Kim Lee and Kat Nova, the crowd will be experience live their unique brand of house, dub-step, trance and latest electro dance music. The DJ Duo have successfully gained world-class performances with several high-profile collaborators such as Brian Kennedy, the man responsible for such hits as Rihanna’s “Disturbia” and Chris Brown’s “Forever”. Until its release, DJ KimKat can always be found doing what they excel at – delivering euphoric sets to rapturous fans across the globe.
