Prior to the first-ever JBL Sound Fest, JBL also rocked the streets of the party capital of the world, Las Vegas, for its annual JBL Fest.
Held as a three-day party, this year’s JBL Fest was headlined by Hollywood artists Pitbull and Ellie Goulding. Other artists who performed were Tinie Tempah, DJ Tigerlily, with special appearances of Priyanka Chopra, Quincy Jones, and AR Rahman, among others.
Aside from an extraordinary musical treat, guests and JBL Fest winners were also given a chance to wander at the luxurious corners of Las Vegas including an exclusive helicopter ride over Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, and the Grand Canyon West.
Included as guests for this year’s JBL Fest are the winners of the contest opened for JBL users in the Philippines. Five lucky names were chosen including Denise Oliver Choi.
Asked about his experience at the JBL Fest 2018, Choi described the trip as an amazing one.
“The experience in Las Vegas is amazing. We really enjoyed the helicopter ride and we were able to see Rachel Platten, Ellie Goulding, and Pitbull live. It was a one of a kind experience, “ Choi said.
Choi, who has been a JBL user for two years now said that their experience at the JBL Fest mirrors his impression for the brand which he regarded as “fun and exciting.”
“JBL is a fun brand. It comes out with exciting products all the time. My favorite product as of now is their 5.1 sound bar. I use it everyday when I watch movies,” he added.
Now on its second year, JBL Fest is an annual event held by Harman International as a way of giving back to their loyal customers through a bizarre concert experience. Prior to this year’s celebration, the inaugural edition of the JBL Fest was also held in Las Vegas top-billed by singer Demi Lovato, pop band DNCE, and NBA Star Damian Lilliard.
