Different countries all over the world will come together as one tomorrow, June 21, to commemorate Fête de la Musique, an annual global French tradition that has become an international phenomenon through the years.

In the Philippines, this year’s edition of Fête de la Musique has been taking its audience on a nationwide musical journey since Friday until tomorrow. #FeteFromMyIsland celebrates not only the artists and music from various parts of the Philippines but also the natural beauty and rich culture of some of the country’s most popular destinations including Boracay, El Nido, La Union and Metro Manila.

“With the health crisis affecting the Philippines for more than a year now, Fête de la Musique still endeavors to stay connected with our audience who has been celebrating music with us every year,” says Jean-Pierre Dumont, executive director of Alliance Francaise de Manille.

Before the big virtual show tomorrow, Fête de la Musique is showcasing OPM legends and up-and-coming artists from Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.

The online musical journey began on June 18 with a Luzon pocket stage, which featured performances by Pedicab and Radha, among others. On June 19, talents from the Visayas took center stage with exciting performances headlined by Kate Torralba. On June 20, the spotlight panned to Mindanao with music from homegrown talents such as KRNA, Moro Beats and Conscious & The Goodness.

Tomorrow, the Philippines will join the rest of the world in celebrating music with four main stages in Metro Manila, Boracay, El Nido and La Union. Featured artists include Barbie Almalbis, Joey Ayala, I-Dren Artstrong, Jako Mandala and Manskee.

As part of the Fête de la Musique tradition in the Philippines, two foreign acts will play alongside Filipino musicians.  This year, multi-awarded and chart-topping singer, composer, and actor Raphaël will be one of the highlights of the June 21 Main Stage.  Also performing is Swiss Jazz band B Connected.

The free-for-all online event is streamed on the Facebook pages of Fête de la Musique PH, Alliance Francaise de Manille, and B-Side Productions, and on the account of Fete de la Musique in Kumu. The event is co-organized by the Department of Tourism, a longtime partner of Fete PH in promoting and supporting OPM and Filipino artists.
