(Inside Manila) There's no better way to celebrate payday and cap off a month-long stress than through a free-for-all music festival!

With a dry weather and cool winds, the second main stage of Fête de la Musique at Puerta Real Gardens Intramuros last Friday was indeed a success. Together with today’s celebrated Pinoy bands and artists Apartel, Ebe Dancel, Autotelic, Tom’s Story and many more gave their fans a grand time performing their best-loved hits and sneak peaks of their upcoming ones.

Last June 30 a simultaneous concert of the third main stage in Baguio and Laguna happened; Malcolm Square in Baguio City was turned into a concert venue for Ang Bandang Shirley, Rusty Machines, Brass Pas Pas Pas Pas, Kat Agarrado, and Tarsius. While up-and-coming local artists such as Walk Me Home, Heneral Lupa, Mad Irie, and Laguna Dance Crews performed at Da Pipols Food Park in Pagsanjan, Laguna.

This year’s Fête de la Musique was made even better and more convenient with the help of the Fête PH app which features the full-line up of the performers, main stages, pocket stages, news, and many more. Free beers were even given to attendees who downloaded the app.

The 24th Edition of Fête de la Musique is presented by Alliance Française de Manille in partnership with B-Side Productions and the Embassy of France to the Philippines.



8 Lines From Ang Bandang Shirley’s ‘Themesong’ Album that Screams Poetic Allusions

Making an album that would stay with your listeners isn’t just a question of whether you whacked out in putting a bunch of songs together as impeccably as possible or not.
