BamBam Joins Sunmi & Pink Sweat$ as Headliners at the Philippines’ Wavy Baby Music Festival: Exclusive

BamBam is heading to the Philippines to lead a lineup of international acts for the forthcoming Wavy Baby Music Festival next month.

Billboard can exclusively reveal that the Thai-born singer-rapper joins fellow K-pop star Sunmi, as well as R&B singer Pink Sweat$, as the final headliner for Careless Music’s Wavy Baby Music Festival taking place at the North Reclamation Area of Mandaue City of the Philippines’ province of Cebu.

BamBam joining as a headliner makes the musician trio somewhat of a family affair as BamBam and Sunmi are both signed under Korean management label Abyss Company, while Sweat$ produced and co-wrote Bam’s latest single “Slo Mo.”

Careless Music’s Wavy Baby Festival is the brainchild of James Reid, the Filipino singer-songwriter who launched his Careless record label in 2017 that’s signed artists like California singer-songwriter Destiny Rodgers and singer-actress Nadine Lustre. Way Baby’s lineup also includes Rogers as well as Korea’s rock-pop band The Rose, Australian electronic music duo Bag Raiders, L.A.-born producer DJ Yultron, and some of the Philippines’ breakout bands like Ben&Ben.

Wavy Baby Festival takes place from Jan. 13-14, 2023, to coincide with the religious Sinulog-Santo Niño Festival celebrations that typically take place in Cebu every year in January. COVID-19 concerns canceled Sinulog festivities for the past three years, but 2023 will mark its long-awaited return alongside the debut of Wavy Baby.

Early bird tickets are still currently on sale for the next three days. The full artist lineup is below.
