The event kicks off with an electrifying opening number that not only features the luxurious McLaren Artura but also encapsulates the artist’s vision of taking fans on a unique journey. As Win explained in his pre-fancon interview, “The idea is taking you somewhere that you’ve never been to with me. A car is going to be my choice of transport to take you to these places.”

The scene unfolds with the McLaren Artura making a grand entrance, setting the tone for an unforgettable night. The choice of the car becomes symbolic, representing the vehicle that will transport the audience to uncharted territories of entertainment and experience. This concept adds a layer of excitement and anticipation to the event, promising a one-of-a-kind adventure.

The opening song, ‘ทะลึ่ง’ by Thaitanium, accompanies Win’s grand entrance. The pulsating beats of the track create a dynamic atmosphere, perfectly complementing the energy of the moment. Win takes the stage, showcasing not only his charismatic presence but also his impressive rapping skills during the performance. The combination of the McLaren Artura, the impactful song choice, and Win’s skillful delivery sets the stage for an exhilarating night ahead.

The first part of the event is a nostalgic trip down memory lane, with places to hang out with friends and Hip-hop Gangster fans. Win performs a series of songs, including ‘24K Magic.’ and ‘2gether: The Movie’ OST ‘Ten Years Later (rearranged ver).’

The 99-liner shows his childhood place as a kid. In the enchanting world of ‘สองรัก (Two Loves),’ Win introduces Mick Metas, his brother, in a heartfelt moment that echoes the bonds forged in their childhood. The duet between Win and Mick not only adds a poignant touch but also aligns seamlessly with the theme of revisiting their shared upbringing. As the narrative unfolds, Mick Metas takes center stage in a solo performance titled ‘City,’ where he showcases his exceptional guitar skills, mesmerizing the audience with his musical prowess. The stage comes alive with the resonating notes, creating a memorable spectacle. It’s worth noting that Win, too, leaves a lasting impression by lending his voice to the soulful melodies of ‘Empty Space’ and ‘I Must Blame the Stars,’ adding to the diverse and emotionally charged musical landscape of the performance.

The third part transports the audience to the mysterious world of Enigma. Prim Chanikarn, his co-star in ‘F4 Thailand’ and ‘Enigma’, makes a surprise entrance donned in an elegant tutu-like white dress. The atmosphere is heightened by the presence of black hooded dancers, adding a touch of drama to the scene, emphasizing the difficulty of being together. As the performance unfolds, Prim begins to walk away, creating a sense of separation. However, in a poignant moment, Win seizes her by the wrist, and they share a meaningful gaze. Post-song, they gracefully descend the stairs hand in hand, concluding the performance on a romantic note. Additionally, the duo delivers a captivating rendition of ‘พิง (Lean)’ by NONT TANONT.

During the talk segment, the ‘Enigma’ star explains that the earlier stage is the Enigma concept, a mysterious world, so his guest should be Prim. The next track is ‘ไม่คาดหวัง ไม่ผิดหวัง (Expect Nothing).’ It is an original composition by 3rd of Tilly Birds, featured in the actor’s own drama ‘Devil Sister.’

Additionally, Win performs his debut single under RISER MUSIC, ‘Too Late (ไม่ได้ทันได้บอกเธอ).’ This track, produced by Thai singer and rapper THE TOYS, carries a melancholic tone.

As Prada’s brand ambassador, Win doesn’t miss out on wearing a number of Prada outfits. He takes his fans to a Prada fashion show.

Donning Prada’s yellow and black trench coat, which he also wore during Milan Fashion Week in 2022, Win returns on stage singing “Sorry” by Justin Bieber.

The next stage features another guest, Thai actress-singer Nene. Win and Nene perform their song with rapper F.HERO ‘VACAY.’ Nene wears a hot pink top and a white skirt. In the song’s middle part, Win suddenly comes out wearing a Prada green coat. The concept is reminiscent of vacations, with backup dancers holding suitcases. Ultimately, the dancers bring out newspapers/magazines with Win’s face on them, saying, “Win Metawin in Fashion Show.”

Win says, “I want to bring you all to Milan.” He also mentions meeting Nene 4-5 years ago in the hit BL series ‘2gether: the series’ as Tine and Air.

The next song is ‘All to Me,’ written by Nene herself, a romantic English song showcasing Nene’s vocal skills.

The “VELENCE” founder later jumps back on stage wearing military/army-inspired attire, singing “Believer” by Imagine Dragons. The backup dancers are wearing military attire as well.

The next song is Win’s newest single under RISER MUSIC, ‘ดึกมากแล้ว (Night Ride).’ This song features another guest, singer Badmixy. ‘Night Ride’ stage has a slightly sexy choreo, then Badmixy, who wears sexy camouflage leotards, appears. Badmixy also performs her viral song ‘DILF.’

And the trip to memory lane will not be complete if the Thai global star doesn’t pay homage to ‘2gether: the series,’ the hit BL series that made him famous.

Win performs ‘คำตอบ (Answer)’ by Scrubb, the Thai band whose songs played pivotal roles in the series’ romance development. He follows it up with ‘2gether: the series’ sequel ‘Still 2gether’ OST ‘คนนั้นต้องเป็นเธอ (That person must be you).’

Towards the end, Win and Snowballpower, his fan club, even greet Mick a happy birthday and sing together.

Aside from covers and his own songs, Win sings many foreign songs to showcase his English speaking skills as expected of a multilingual.

The event has lots of guest performers, including his brother Mick, Prim, Nene, and Badmixy.

The Holidate Fancon is a heartfelt journey through music and love, a testament to Win’s talent and charisma. It is a night to remember for all the fans who attended, filled with music, fashion, and love.
