MAKE IT HAP­PEN

Open-air per­for­mances, con­certs, sport events, and fash­ion shows find a new home in the Globe Cir­cuit Events Ground. Com­posed of a wide and green two-hectare sur­face, the venue's sig­na­ture 2,000-sqm canopy alone can house a crowd of up to 800 peo­ple and ac­com­mo­date stages of var­i­ous sizes. Ex­tend­ing be­yond the canopy, the green ground pro­vides space for another 10,000 peo­ple.

The Globe Cir­cuit Events Ground has been es­tab­lished as a prime lo­ca­tion for grand fes­ti­vals like Wan­der­land.

1. PITCH MODE ON

Some­times, the grass isn't al­ways greener on the other side. At the Ga­torade-Chelsea FC Blue Pitch, ar­ti­fi­cial blue grass is the new ground for football games. Venue co-man­ager Chelsea Soc­cer School of the Philip­pines sug­gested the shade of blue sim­i­lar to the kits of the English Chelsea FC. The Blue Pitch is tagged as a “FIFA-Rec­om­mended One-Star” field, deem­ing it a suit­able place for recre­ational and public use, as well as com­pet­i­tive play.

2. FROM THE KART At­ten­tion, kart­ing en­thu­si­asts: Ci­tyKart Rac­ing now boasts a 1,000-m F4 train­ing sys­tem track with an as­phalt track, a safe and easy sur­face spe­cially de­signed to pro­vide ul­ti­mate grip whether wet or dry. The track is part of a fa­cil­ity that in­cludes a club­house with con­fer­ence rooms, a panoramic ter­race, re­cep­tion area, cov­ered stands, and a bar-cum-res­tau­rant where you can un­wind as you watch the karts go in real-time on gi­ant screens. Ninety high-per­for­mance karts are avail­able for rental at 10 min­utes per ses­sion.

Mem­bers of City Kart Rac­ing Team Pro, a team that races pro­fes­sion­ally around Asia and Europe, are al­ways avail­able to coach

3. SKATERS GONNA SKATE new­bies. Long­board lovers look­ing for friends and skate men­tors can head over to the Moun­tain Dew Skatepark, the first ur­ban skate park de­vel­oped by Ayala Land in part­ner­ship with Moun­tain Dew and WeLe­gendary. Di­vided into sec­tions for be­gin­ner, in­ter­me­di­ate, and pro­fes­sional skaters, the 1,000-sqm

skate area is safe and ideal for leisurely skate­board­ing af­ter­noons and for­mal com­pe­ti­tions.

Wan­der­land 2014 was a place for friends and fam­ily to roll out their mats to lis­ten to live acts.
