Every year, OPM enthusiasts always look forward to one of the biggest music festivals of the year: The Rakrakan Festival. The event is back on track to celebrate the future and growing community of OPM. It encourages everyone to brace themselves for the biggest, loudest, and boldest music and arts festival of the country kickstarts the first quarter of the year at the CCP Open Grounds, Pasay City on April 25, 2020.

Retaining last year’s theme, “Peace, Love & Music”, the people behind this celebration still aim to share relevant messages for today’s society to its attendees. It is jam-packed with not only performances, but also exhibits, local merchandise, and back-to-back activities which will surely make this one very unforgettable.

Here’s what you can expect in this year’s festival:

Your Favorite Bands and Artists Playing Simultaneously in Six Stages

Rakrakan Festival will still have six main stages: Aklas Move Stage, Lakas Mosh Stage, TM Center Stage, Slam Stage, Peace Stage, and Lahi stage. All of them have at least 20 artists each. And take this: sound distribution won’t be a problem here; you can totally chill enjoy the stage your in without worrying about clashing with the others.
