MTV EXIT (End Exploitation and Trafficking) is going to hold a massive live concert in Manila on October 29, 6PM, at the Mall of Asia Concert Grounds to raise awareness and increase prevention of human trafficking and exploitation.
Korean pop sensation Jay Park will headline the concert. He will be joined by Evaline, an alternative rock band from the US. A lot of top local artists will also perform at the concert, most of whom were part of the MTV EXIT Live in Manila concert in May 2009.
MTV EXIT Live in Manila is a free concert but free tickets will be issued perhaps to minimize the number of audience to the capacity of the venue. No details about the tickets has been released yet, though. Just keep it here for more updates.
A week before the concert, a National Youth Summit for the Movement of Anti-Trafficking Advocates will be hosted by MTV EXIT and the Visayan Forum Foundation.
The MTV EXIT is a multimedia initiative produced by MTV EXIT Foundation (formerly known as the MTV Europe Foundation) to raise awareness and increase prevention of human trafficking. MTV EXIT Foundation is a registered UK charity launched by MTV Networks Europe in 2003 to use the power and influence of MTV's brand and broadcasting network to educate young people about the social issues affecting their lives. –WIKIPEDIA
