UNKNWN is turning eight on Saturday, February 10, and will host its annual anniversary event titled UNKNWN.Eight at the aptly named Dancing Queen at Makati Cinema Square.
To kick off the festivities, UNKNWN is offering complimentary shots during the open bar from 8 PM to 9 PM (or until supplies last), so early birds are in for a treat.
The event itself is planned to go on until 5am on Sunday, February 11, and will unfold across two stages, featuring an eclectic mix of performers.
Dynamic duo Tarsius will be gracing the UNKNWN stage for the first time since 2018, while scene stalwarts Ornusa and Amaury Brücker will be stepping behind the UNKNWN decks for the first time. And, of course, no UNKNWN party would be complete without resident vibe manager, Emel Rowe.
