Gates for the Cosmos concert opened as early as 3:30pm and the fun lasted until the wee hours. The Sunken Garden was quickly filled with music-lovers from all walks of life who patiently waited for their favorite artists. Concertgoers jumped, danced, and screamed to Filipino music the entire night, proving the magnetic pull of OPM acts.


On top of all the music, attendees were also treated to a new song from indie folk pop band Ben&Ben when it debuted “Sunrise” during its set at the Cosmos concert.


Students were also given the opportunity to be part of the Vivo Club during the Cosmos concert and throughout the weeklong UP Fair.
