For the love of everything literary, whether it be in the form of books, theater, poetry or music, LitFest Fridays at the Sky Park of SM Seaside City Cebu is the place to be!
Part of the Sessions at the Sky Park series, LitFest Fridays is SM Seaside City Cebu’s collaboration with the organizers of the popular Cebu Literary Festival, more commonly known as the “Cebu LitFest”, an annual event that brings together a multitude of people who share the same love and passion for literature in all forms. With this love and passion for literature, it’s no wonder that the event has been successful for four years now.
LitFest Fridays is an avenue to showcase local literary talent. Book readings, spoken word poetry, theater performances, music and moderated conversations are just among the many activities that one can experience.
“We decided to make Litfest Fridays as part of the Sessions because we want to make the Sky Park a venue for artists to express themselves in all art forms,” says marketing manager Bonneville Almendras. While enjoying the various performances, guests can sit back and relax in the comfortable chairs scattered across the venue.
On August 25, LitFest Fridays will feature a special guest, Ang Bandang Shirley. The seven-member band whose music is both atmospheric and intimate, with a lyrical reach that manages to be universal and personal at the same time, has hits such as Umaapaw and Siberia making waves in the local independent music scene.
“There is still so much that we want to do for LitFest Fridays,” Bo adds. “This is just the beginning of something bigger.”
It’s just the beginning, indeed! LitFest Fridays are held every Friday, 6PM, at the Sky Park of SM Seaside City Cebu. For more information, check out SM Seaside’s Facebook page.
