What makes this different from last time?

Event organizer and Docdef Productions founder JB Balaquit says of this year’s edition, “We are excited to give this event a more bouncy feel with a bit of a hip-hop twist.” He adds, “Our production is a lot different from the first as we want to give a more festive feel and make sure to justify their money’s worth.” Finally, what does he hope the event would achieve? “We want it to be more fun, we want people to interact, make new friends, sing out loud and dance around.”
