As the weekend came to a bittersweet close, the folks over at San Juan, La Union, trooped to the beach for BEEP!'s second Soul Surf festival. It was a day filled with sun, surfing, and sunnies at the beach: weekenders either donned their rash guards or sunbathed in anticipation of the night's festival acts.

After a day at the beach, the folks at Soul Surf gathered in front of the stage for a relatively more relaxed vibe in what resembled a campfire huddle.
Local act Sinyma immersing the audience in a glorious mix of house, garage, and techno. As Sinyma starts their set, a sudden downpour of rain starts and prompts the crowd to rush towards the front of the stage to take refuge; to which Sinyma frontwoman Jess Connelly quips, "It's kind of funny that it rained just as I started singing!"
But as the rain showed no sign of stopping, the organizers opted to move the set to Kahuna's Bar where everyone collectively refused to let a little (or perhaps in this case, a lot) of rain ruin the night:

As the beats progressed, the question on everyone's minds remained, "What becomes of Dishwalla's set?" Much to the crowd's relief and excitement, the organizers announced that the award-winning rock band has agreed to stay in Manila for the week affording folks who journeyed all the way to La Union a chance to catch them live.
Note: The Soul Surf 2014 wristband serves as a free pass to the rescheduled set of Dishwalla in Manila—please keep checking the event's social media pages for further infromation.
