It’s In to be Out! Gone are the days where you stay in and veg out on your laptop, socializing with friends online. The outdoors is the new and better way to stay connected and have the best time doing it! On April 16-17, 2016, all roads lead to Bonifacio High Street in Bonifacio Global City for the much anticipated R.O.X. Outdoor Festival 2016!

Last year’s R.O.X. Outdoor Festival 2015 was a phenomenal success. The entire stretch of Bonifacio High Street was painted red for the event, bringing together dozens of premier outdoor brands that sponsored exciting games which tested one’s mental and physical endurance. There were performances by current artists and bands, booths, movies and fun activities for kids that made the Festival the most happening place to be for the weekend.

This year, it’s going to be even bigger as R.O.X. rolls out more exhilarating activations, and new brands bring out thrilling competitions for those brave enough to try them out. The R.O.X. Outdoor Festival 2016 is free and more than that will be giving away outdoor gear for those who register for the event. There’s a game tailor fit for anyone who wants to come, making it the perfect destination for the community to come together and share a truly awesome summer experience.

R.O.X. is building a 40-foot wall for the R.O.X. Zero Gravity: National Lead Climbing Competition for the R.O.X. Outdoor Festival 2016. Participants will have to leave fear on the ground as they attempt to summit the monster wall set out before them. If that’s not exciting enough, there’s going to be several outdoor crash courses that will be offered to those who love taking on the great outdoors. Stay a little bit towards the end of the day for the R.O.X. Outdoor Film Showing where you can watch blockbuster films while enjoying the outdoors.

And R.O.X. is not the only one who will be having all the fun. Some of the best international outdoor brands will be putting up challenges that will have the attendees push the limits on what they think they can do The North Face, Salomon, Fox, Mountain Hardware, Poler, and DC are just some of the brands that are preparing epic adventures and fun games that will surely make this weekend the best one you’ve had.

Aside from all the crazy-fun games and competitions, there will be activities, workshops, food stalls, picnic grounds and band performances that will be happening all throughout the event.
