At least 15,000 Filipino rakistas are expected to gather tonight at Circuit Events Ground in Makati City for the third Rakrakan Festival ’15.

And to give rakistas the ultimate festival experience, Rarkarakan will also have Merch Bazaar featuring about 60 local brands, a food bazaar, an open skate session and competition, and a new street art exhibition. Also included in the lineup of activities are face painting, henna tattooing, band meet-and-greet and Segway rides around the venue, and so much more!
