You ready for a farewell? Time to say BYE2020
The last days of the year are rolling by, and we are with everyone that is eager to rid the 2020 blues away. We’re ready to say farewell to all the negativity, the indifference and the draining energy—and, armed with everything we’ve learned, are eager to celebrate all the possibilities of the next year(s).
But how do you close an experience as indescribable as 2020? With BYE2020, a collective effort from music labels all across the world, naturally.
In the spirit of bringing together Filipinos of all backgrounds, interests and preferences, BYE2020 is lining up 28 artists for a New Year’s celebration that everyone and anyone can join. Twenty eight artists are set to join the virtual performance, including Ben&Ben, Darren Espanto, Moira, SB19, The Itchyworms, Leanne & Naara, Maximillian (DK), Peach Tree Rascals (US), Tate Mcrae (CA), Glaiza de Castro, Kean Cipriano, Lala Vizon, Zack Tabudlo, Keiko Necesario, Fern., Elha Nympha, Autotelic, Sud, Miguel Odron, VVS Collective, Ace Banzuelo, Paolo Sandejas, Earl Generao, FANA, TALA, J-Nine and Dia Mate.
“What BYE2020 delivers is a way for every Filipino to look back at all of the challenges we have faced, and enter 2021 a bit more hopeful,” the organizers say. “Fortunately for us technology has allowed us to re-imagine what we can do for music entertainment and live events. And we are bringing to bear every learning, every talent, and every skill we have gained this 2020 and applying it to our event BYE2020.”
We don’t know about you, but this first-of-its-kind year-ender party sounds like something we need to get behind. Besides, no one knows how to celebrate like Filipinos. So what if it’s through a screen and lacking the standard (yet honestly gross) sea of sweaty bodies?

So what are we in store for? Six hours of continuous streams, viewable on YouTube, Facebook, TikTok starting 7PM on December 31, 2020. And if you have cable, it’s also streaming on Sky Cable’s Ch 995 HD and 155 SD. Plus, an awarding for the best local creators for record-breaking achievements in digital content and entertainment. Plus, other surprises we can’t tell you about just yet. Plus, while the performances are available for streaming for free, you can get special access to Zoom pits, backstage content with the artists and limited-edition merch—just visit this right here.
Well, it goes without saying by now, but our New Year’s Eve is officially booked. You’ll know where to find us (safe at home and social distancing, but still dancing the year away with BYE2020).
