For its music festival this year, toothpaste brand Closeup crowd-sourced their lineup through social media. Except, Manila couldn't decide. Unilever's PR head Apples Aberin said people were split on whether to have EDM acts or Indie acts at Closeup Forever Summer.

“After seeing the results, Closeup has decided to take it to the next level, by combining indie and EDM in one music festival," she said.

For an indie afternoon, Australian sibling-duo Angus & Julia Stone ("Big Jet Plane") will perform a folk-pop acoustic set. For the EDM night, Dutch DJ/Producer Martin Garrix ("Animals") will take the stage, preceded by DJ Eva Shaw (Ultra Miami).

Completing the line-up are local acts: SinymaAutotelicDJ Nix Damn P with Motherbass, and BP Valenzuela. (Listen to her song in a Style Bible video here.)

To kick things off, there was a party at Valkyrie with Julia Barretto, top fashion photographer Mark Nicdao and a very fresh Coleen Garcia in attendance. Her lob just looks great with her pearly whites.
