Manila Music Festival May 1, 2012

Music By April 30, 2012 Tags: , , , No Comments

The local music scene is one of a kind. Pulsating with energy, passion, and excitement that rivals the world music scene as a whole, Filipino bands, performers, disk jockeys, songwriters, and dancers alike give their hearts out whenever they perform, making them one of the greatest performers in the world.

Despite the huge number of talents, there are not much musical events in the Philippines. Yes, there are quite a number of annual music festivals such as the Pulp Summer Slam and the San Miguel Beer Oktoberfest, which are remarkable, but with the gifts that our talents have, there simply is no excuse not to come up with a bigger stupefying event that will leave the world so dumbstruck they don’t know what they hit them.
