Fête de la Musique Philippines 2013

Our electro-bloods start to bubble when June comes marching in because something tells us it’s the dawn of consecutive events and festivals in Manila. One festival we jump up and down for every time this time of year comes around is Fete de la Musique Philippines. According to Wiki, this is what it’s all about:

The Fête de la Musique, also known as World Music Day, is a music festival taking place on June 21. World Music Day is a day on which the world celebrates the magical gift of music.

The idea of the World Music Day was conceptualized first in France in 1976 by American musician Joel Cohen who proposed an all-night music celebration to mark the beginning of the summer solstice.

The idea was taken up by French Music and Dance director Maurice Fleuret for Minister of Culture Jack Lang in 1981 and first took place in 1982 in Paris.

Ever since, the festival has become an international phenomenon, celebrated on the same day in more than 460 cities in 110 countries, including Germany, Italy, Egypt, Syria, Morocco, Australia, Vietnam, Congo, Cameroon, Fiji, Colombia, Chile, Nepal, and Japan.

And it has been celebrated every year in the Philippines since a few years back! This year’s celebration is on June 15, 2013. 4pm-2am, in Makati City. Different genres on different stages all around Makati City. One main stage + 8 pocket venues + over 100 bands  + 10 hours of live music. What’s more awesome than that? It’s free admission! Get ready to jump and dance and sway and sing and shout and sweat!

Here’s the list of the stages for easier navigation:
