Headliner Manila

Headliner Manila is a music, events, and live concerts website. It was founded by Gia Allana in 2017 and became operational in 2018—starting Headliner Manila’s social media accounts alongside Saab Pilarca. Headliner Manila partnered with over 75 events in a span of two years. The website was active until May 2020, but went on hiatus due to the global pandemic.

In 2021, Headliner Manila became a category under giaallana.com—articles about music, online events, and general K-pop news are under this category. Still, the Facebook community page functions separately, and is still updated regularly by HM’s social media team.

Headliner Manila in 2022

Moving forward, Headliner Manila’s website will continue to stay as a sub-category under giaallana.com. However, Headliner Manila’s community aspect—Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram—will remain as a separate entity handled by the social media team.

Handled by editorial team, Headliner Manila’s social media community aims to unite likeminded individuals who also love events, music, and the concert scene. It functions as a separate platform.

Social Media Team

The team was part of the original Headliner Manila website. Now—as a community wing—the core team is in-charge of HM’s social media accounts.
