Shout Out! 1st.One to Grace The Stage of Tugatog Filipino Music Festival 2022

After winning first place at the 28th Philippines-Korea Cultural Exchange Festival in 2019, being held as the grand winners of the Seoul Music Awards: PH Dance To Your Seoul in the same year. And becoming the first-ever Filipino artist to perform to open for the Seoul Music Awards 2020, It seems like P-pop boy group 1st.One has done everything to represent our country in the best way one can.

But this time, the boys are back on the local stage to sweep everyone on their feet! 1st.One will be performing along with many other P-pop groups at the upcoming Tugatog Filipino Music Festival 2022 and PARCINQ Magazine has everything you need to know,

1st.One on Tugatog

This six-member boy group composed of Ace, Alpha, Max, Jayson, J, and Joker, has been under the limelight for quite some time as 1st.One. But according to the group, performing in front of Pinoy P-pop fans is a different level of fear since they will be showing their talent in front of the people they represent.

Luckily, the members have been very supportive of each other. “That’s what makes us special,” says Ace, the leader, and main vocalist of the group. “Based on the individualities of every member coming together, and of course the chemistry between us members. Yung kasing strenght ng bawat isa is na aabsorb ng bawat members, and yung weaknesses naman if napupunan ng bawat isang members.”

When asked about their preparation for Tugatog Filipino Music Festival 2022, 1st.One shared that they are really doing their best to make the most out of the event. Just like every other group that is part of the said event, the group has been under a strict diet and continuous training over the past months. “In terms of fitness, we train every morning for endurance,” says Max, the main vocalist and lead dancer of the group. “We watch what we eat, our diet, and our workout just for us to function properly and give our 100% during our performance, Just like our bodies, we also train our voices, we never miss a practice, especially on our vocal warm-ups.”

Aside from 1st.One some of the P-pop groups that will participate in the festival are ALAMAT, MNL48, BINI, BGYO, LITZ, P-POP GENERATION, PRESS HIT PLAY, G22, CALISTA, DIONE, R-RULES, YARA, DAYDREAM, and VXON. Tickets for the Tugatog Filipino Music Festival are already available at SMTickets.

“We will surely make sure that you will remember 1st.One because we will be preparing a performance that is truly us,” The group said. They also shared that there is a lot in store for fans that will be attending the grand music event. For their performance, the group is already preparing to perform their single “Shout Out” which already garnered 1,839,126 views on Youtube as of writing. But that’s not all, the group also shared the possibility of performing a new song on stage. “Marami pa namang oras bago ang Tugatog Music Festival, madami pa ang puwedeng mangyari,” the group teases.
