Kodaline keep promise to Filipino fans to visit Manila next year

Kodaline announced earlier today (11/30) via their social media channels, that they will be joining next year's Wanderland line-up. The band has been on the Wanderland wishlist of many fans since 2015 and in 2018, Kodaline will finally make it to Philippines shores.


Last August, the band visited Asia to perform in a couple of festivals, including Jakarta's We The Fest, where they shared the stage with the likes of Phoenix, The Kooks, and Big Sean. The band also stopped by Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia to perform at Good Vibes Festival.

Filipino fan Jesi flew to Kuala Lumpur just to see Kodaline's rain-drenched set in Good Vibes Festival.

She and her friends were lucky enough to run into the boys the day after their festival performance, catching the band walking around popular tourist spot, Bukit Bintang. According to their social media accounts, they were looking for a rooftop for a video shoot. Jesi and her friends were in the area when they spotted one of the band's crew members. 

They approached vocalist Steve Garrigan and asked him to "Come to Manila! Next year?" and he dutifully replied with a "Yes". 

The fans also handed guitarist Mark Prendergast and drummer Vincent May a special souvenir — the famous barrel man from Baguio (a fan gave one to Lucy Rose when she visited Manila last September), which the pair happily received.

Watch the video below to see their reactions. 

The Irish act will join FKJ, Lauv, IV of Spades and Wanderband 2018 winners Basically Saturday Night, and runner-ups Carousel Casualties at Wanderland Pixels on March 10, 2018. Get tickets here.
