“It brings together the best of the Philippines’ metal scene and the best of everywhere else’s.”, says the website about the biggest and longest-running metal festival in Southeast Asia. Since its inception in 2001, PULP SUMMER SLAM prides itself with the ability to draw thousands-strong crowds which grew exponentially, ‘til it reached a point where a minimum of 30,000 Slameros would converge in the largest annual metal event in the country and in the region. In fact, the Slam has ceased to be just an annual event-- it has become a metal tradition like no other, especially for attendees who have been returning year, after year, after year.
