Elijah, Calix, BLKD, Ena Mori, Pedicab and More to Perform at the ‘Rest is Noise 36’

The Rest Is Noise PH, a music curator and events production outfit based in Manila, has officially announced the roster of music acts for its 36th edition, happening on May 26, Friday at Balcony Music House, Makati City.

Marking his debut as a producer/rapper/performer is award-winning actor Elijah Canlas, who is currently working on new music with the guidance of his record label, Island Records Philippines. The rising multihyphenate will be performing using his mononym, elijah, for the first time, teasing listeners for what’s to come on his music venture.

BLKD and Calix return to The Rest Is Noise for a highly anticipated Kolateral set—their first performance since 2020. The pair will be performing the now-enduring material from the 2019 collaborative album—hailed as one of the best music from the last decade—made with research-backed data along with participation from several rappers and producers, aimed to tell the story of the nation’s drug war’s dead and those who bury them.

Other performers include ena mori, who recently made noise at South by Southwest (SWSW) music festival in Austin, Texas as the sole Filipino act at this year’s edition; T33G33, Aly Cabral’s experimental/electronic pop alter-ego; Hey June!, an alt-rock newcomer; LONER, a two-step/garage music producer; and Pedicab, an iconic dance-rock outfit with several hits under their belt.

Pre-sale tickets are available at PHP 700 for limited quantities only, and regular tickets are priced at PHP 800. Tickets are available on April 25, Tuesday (12 midnight) via this link:
