By: Ria Jose

Every year, partyphiles come to Davao for the most awaited music festival in the city. The one that started it all. Unfortunately, we missed it in 2016. The good news is Carte Blanche 2017 is back in time for the Kadayawan Festival.

Launched in 2013, Carte Blanche is the first EDM Music Festival in Mindanao. Year after year, Carte Blanche delivers a party that is much talked about for months. From the lineup to the hyped atmosphere replete with confetti and memorable sidelights, Carte Blanche was the party to go. Even for non-partygoers. After a one year of absence, everybody is ready for another Carte Blache. One last time.
