Tickets to Pulp Summer Slam 12: The Apostles will cost P400 (approximately 9 U.S. dollars) and will include freebies such as beer, pizza, soda, cellphone load, condoms, and discount to the official festival shirt.
Presented by Colt 45, Pulp Summer Slam 12: The Apostles will also conduct a video filming for ARCH ENEMY's upcoming live concert DVD. This will be the third time for the festival to host a filming — DEATH ANGEL filmed parts of their documentary, "A Thrashumentary", at the festival last April 2011 which will be released in spring of 2012 while SHADOWS FALL released "Madness In Manila" in October 2010, also filmed at the festival and venue in 2009.
Last year, Pulp Summer Slam was headlined by ANTHRAX, HELLYEAH and DEATH ANGEL. Thousands of rock and heavy metal fans all over the country, as well as neighboring countries, flocked to the Amoranto Stadium to witness the 15-hour show which was highlighted by ANTHRAX's performance followed by a two-minute pyro show.
