Euphoria Relived moved to July 9

THE VIRTUAL party Euphoria Relived, led by Euphoria disco’s original DJs Boyet Sison and Mon Maramba, has been rescheduled to July 9.

Streaming live via KTX.ph, iWantTFC, and TFC IPTV, the event will feature DJ Boyet live from the roof deck of ABS-CBN’s main building and DJ Mon live from the US as they perform their sets in a five-hour nonstop digital party featuring the throwback hits from the late 1980s to early 1990s. Euphoria Relived is presented by ABS-CBN Events, DM Entertainment, Louie Y, and Metro. Regular tickets are still up for grabs for P599 via KTX.ph and iWantTFC, and $12.99 via TFC IPTV.
