The workshops offered are still updating as of this writing, and they are open to other request in case.  Among expected artist that will conduct workshops are Palanca awardee Nicolas Pechay, OPM Singer Dong Abay, and former Miss Saigon Ima Castro.

The three day events will culminate in the following places like Hotel Centro, Casa Nieves, Microtel and in City Coliseum. Garcia also said that they are going to feature some EDM style of party in the the 3 nights of party that they offer.
