Every year it gets better and better! Dinagyang Ati Tribe Competition once again soared to new heights this year with grandiose production numbers and performances delivered by the Ati Tribes.

Seamless dance choreography coupled with extravagant costumes and props, beautiful storylines, and of course, the exotic Ati drum beating brought the spectators, both foreign and local, asking for more.

Indeed, Ilonggos were proud of the accomplishments of their kasimanwas in bringing another world-class Dinagyang experience this 2016.

Dinagyang Festival is the Philippines’ premiere and best tourism event.

Living up to its reputation as the country Queen of Festivals, Dinagyang 2016 has once again astonished foreign visitors and local audience alike. With more emphasis given to choreography, the signature energetic and feverish dance moves of the warriors have levelled up this year. Criss-crossing the down town are the tribes doing street dancing culminating to full performances in the five stages spread across the city.

This year’s tribe competition gets hotter as the contingents aim for the top spot who will attain the honor of representing Iloilo abroad. For years now, Dinagyang has received invitations from Guam, Hong Kong, South Korea, New York, and Singapore. It is crucial that the city sent the best of the best as they will serve as our international ambassadors promoting not only Dinagyang, but the whole of Iloilo.

Without further much ado, these are the highlights of 2016 Ati Tribe Dance Competition of this year’s Iloilo Dinagyang Festival.
