NICE KNOCKERS HO (NKH) presents :
The concept of the huge free music festival ends, but music is a part of my life so definitely I’ll still hang around doing little gigs here and there. I would like to get away from the ‘Meiday’ fame as much as possible because it is really exhausting. The popularity that came with it became a full time job and that I was always expected to please people. And if I fail, I am easily targeted by the ungrateful. Meiday is like my baby, I am upset that I had to do this. But things end and people have to move on. Who knows, I might do something else and just won’t call it Meiday. Point is, I’m not going anywhere.
THE LAST ONE BIG EPIC MEIDAY PARTEY!!!

The Ball Breaker
Founder of Meiday
Meiday, the music festival-slash-phenomenon, is now a little more than three years old*. Born in Purple Haze Bar and having spanned the city from Big Sky Mind to B-Side, its most famous incarnations happened in Cubao X — a previously peaceful courtyard of indie art and vintage finds — which might have been doomed to murder by lease, if not for one Mei Bastes.
As Meiday’s spearhead, face, and name, Mei often gets written off as a scene queen, but anyone who has witnessed Meiday’s hundreds-strong turnout cannot deny that Mei reigns supreme.
Her grip on the gig scene is at once an extended hand and a raised middle finger. She has fostered a community that’s hungry to contribute to Meiday’s welfare — be it through poster design, hosting duties, or performance. On the other hand, by keeping Meiday free of charge, Mei has declared a stance against the status quo of exorbitant door charges for the audience and pay-to-play fees for the bands.
Meiday is known as the best party anyone can throw, but it is elevated to cult status because Mei is not just anyone. Her innate audacity and brazen free speech invites controversy, and makes her an easy target for the ungrateful. She deals equally with hate and fanmail, and has been known to exercise an iron fist when partygoers overstep their boundaries.
Ultimately, however, Mei must be judged by what she gives the wild youth: parties they didn’t know were possible.

Meiday is four years old as of Feb 2012, and will be staging its last show on March 10, BSIDE Courtyard.
