(Inside Manila) Do you ever feel sad about the times when you missed your favorite live music festivals because you ran out of money to pay for the tickets or something more urgent came up? Well… worry no more because Karpos Multimedia is once again bringing you home-grown artists together with international acts! And the better news is that, you can have your tickets as early as now!

Karpos Multimedia is known in the gig-circuit as one of the fast-rising Manila-based Events and Content Marketing Companies. They have brought here artists such as Lauv, Kodaline, Daniel Ceasar, and FJK to name a few. But this time, they definitely upped their game as they give the Filipino concert goers some more.

2018 started nice with Karpos because it is also the year when they launched Karpos Live, a series of pure live music all for the sake of good times. Just last June 15, the first ever installation of Karpos Live Mix 1.1 headlined by indie darling Reese Lansangan, three-piece post-rock instrumental group Tom’s Story, and Singer-songwriter Elise Huang took place at ABS-CBN Vertis Tent.

After its overwhelming success, Karpos announced new back-to-back concerts happening in July, August, and October.

Mix 1.2 will be on July 24 with performances from Grammy-nominated artist Anderson.Paak and R&B duo Honne. Tickets are already up for sale since last week.

In an announcement made in social media last week, Karpos has also revealed the roster of lineup for Mix 2. Heating up the upcoming Mix 2.1 are Australian electronic-pop indie artist Vancouver Sleep Clinic and London-based multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter Tom Misch ​on August 23.

Meanwhile, our very own acoustic singer-songwriter Clara Benin and nine-piece indie folk band Ben&Ben will hit the stage of Mix 2.2.

All the upcoming shows will also happen at the ABS-CBN Vertis Tent. Tickets for the Mix 2.1 and 2.2 will be on sale starting June 30 at 10:00 a.m.

So, you better save whatever's left from your allowance to have the chance to be part of these concert series.

As for now, indulge yourself to the groove of the music of Mix artists through this playlist:
