For the third consecutive year, TV5 and Quezon City government is set to bring cheers to all Kapatid as it started to roll off the red carpet for a grand New Year Countdown featuring top performers and a grand fireworks display.

TV5′s President and CEO Vincent “Chot” Reyes in a video message posted on TV5′s Facebook page said, “Sama-sama nating salubungin ang 2017 with a loud, colorful, and joyful pop. Let’s party with the top bands and K-Pop groups as we welcome the New Year with the grandest fireworks show in the land.”

The fun-filled and exciting New Year Countdown is slated on December 31 at Quezon Memorial Circle at 9 p.m.

Headlining the show are bands Rivermaya and Spongecola, as well as K-Pop group Offroad and Pentagon. Filipino hip hop artists Abra, Loonie, and Abby are also included in the roster of performers; while Alodia Gosiengfiao and Diana Meneses are also joining the event.

Sharing their excitement to perform for their Filipino fans, members of Offroad shared a video message posted on TV5′s Facebook page: “We will be participating at TV5′s countdown live–the biggest year-end event in the Philippines. If you want to spend the last day of 2016 and first day of 2017 with Offroad, see you at Quezon Memorial Circle!”

Meanwhile, the 2017 New Year Countdown is just a sneak peak of more exciting things ahead for the Kapatid Network.
