Last week during a press conference held at The Park Social in IT Park, Kim Bautista of Mousai Productions and Events announced that Bamboo Mañalac will be coming to Cebu to headline the Independence Day concert this June 9, 2018 (7:00PM) to be held at the Sugbo Grounds, South Road Properties (or SRP).
