9 main stages, over 50 pocket venues and thousands of artists for Fête de la Musique’s 25th anniversary [fr]
The Alliance Française de Manille, in partnership with B-side and the Embassy of France to the Philippines, presents the 25th edition of Fête de la Musique in the Philippines! This event showcases the best of the local music scene in what has become one of the most important music festivals of the Philippines, while also providing a full cross-cultural experience between the French and Filipino people.
2019 is a particularly important year as it marks the 25th anniversary of Fête de la Musique in the Philippines. This event will continue its tradition of producing several main stages across Metro Manila, while adding stages in six other cities all over the country. Over 50 pocket stages in Makati City will host independently produced stages where festival goers will be able to enjoy many different musical genres.
The 25th edition of Fête de la Musique will also introduce new activities throughout the month of June 2019.
Starting a new annual tradition, Fête de la Musique 2019 introduced "Music Heals: Fête de la Musique Pop-Up" to highlight the healing power of music. Together with nurse-rapper Fatima Palma-Loo and Quest, Fête de la Musique presented a pop-up show last June 8 to inspire, heal, and give hope to the children of the Virlanie Foundation in Makati City.
Last June 15, three pre-Fête de la Musique parties simultaneously took place to kick-off the anniversary celebrations in Bonifacio Global City (KMC Skydeck), Makati City (The Peninsula Hotel) and Intramuros (Luneta Park).
This year’s milestone also gives Fête de la Musique fans a chance to win round-trip tickets to France through the #FeteStories social media contest by simply sharing a 25-second video of their fondest Fête de la Musique memories through the years.
Fête de la Musique-goers can also look forward to #GlobeFete Production Number, a special 25-minute performance on June 21 at the A-Venue main stage. The multi-genre medley, led by Francis De Veyra, will feature artists such as Bituin Escalante Aia de Leon, Vic Facultad, Cooky Chua, Bayang Barrios, Tarsius, Kat Agarrado, Jensen Gomez, Bea Lorenzo, Zsaris, Brass Pas Pas Pas Pas and many more.
A special All-Female French-Filipino Medley will also take place on June 28 at the Intramuros main stage, led by Pinay musician Radha, in collaboration with Vanessa Monot, Fatima Palma-Loo, and many more.
The 2019 edition of Fête de la Musique will come to a close with a final concert on June 29 at 20:20 in Makati City.
The 25th Fête de la Musique in the Philippines is sponsored by Globe and San Miguel.
