LANY, Ben&Ben, Toys for Big Boys Mark Globe's Annual 917 Celebration
917 is Globe’s original prefix. If your phone number starts with those digits, it means you've been a loyal customer. It also stands for today’s date, September 17, which the telecoms provider has labelled the annual National G Day.
“More than our annual tradition, it is our way of recognizing our customers for their loyalty and support,” said Globe President and CEO Ernest Cu. “This year’s unusual circumstance does not stop us from making our 0917 celebration more meaningful.”
In these uncertain times, the celebration has gone digital, with patrons logging on using their Globe numbers, of course.
The two-week event kicks off today with a raffle with toys for big boys, including 5G smartphones and gaming consoles such as the Nintendo Switch, Segway Ninebot, Samsung products, Xiaomi Mi Box, even Globe Rewards points or GCash credit, so we can buy exactly what we want.
What we’re especially looking forward to is the streaming G Music Fest topbilled by international band LANY, and local acts The Juans, Massiah, Kiana Valenciano, UDD, SB19, Ben & Ben, and December Avenue.
While we can't watch them the way we used to, smushed with thousands of other fans, we can still watch them live from home. Globe customers can stream the music fest for free on September 26, 4 p.m. through Globe’s Facebook page.
