Fête de la Musique at Ayala today
The Alliance Française de Manille, the Embassy of France in the Philippines and B-Side Productions together with A.Venue Mall and the City of Makati bring Fête de la Musique 2013, the most-awaited free-admission music event of the year.
Fête de la Musique 2013 takes place 4 p.m. onwards today at the A.Venue Mall Open Parking (along Makati Avenue). Together with the country’s best established and upcoming musical talents, this year’s Fête features one of today’s most exciting French Electro-Pop sensations: the Naïve New Beaters, also known as NNBS.
NNBS is composed of David Boring, Martin Luther BB King, and Eurobelix, whose differences in background and influence result in a savage kind of exotic music with touches of rock, electronica and hip hop. In 2004, they released their debut album “Wallace" which they promoted by touring famous festivals around Europe, in cooperation with Nokia. Eight years later, NNBS reinforced their electro-pop-rock-cheerful sound with a second album, La Onda.
In 2013, they share their natural energy and bring their odd and crazy but stimulating sound to Southeast Asia with a six-city tour that kicks off on the Fête de la Musique stage in Manila.
Fête de la Musique also aims to showcase the richness, diversity and broad spectrum of the Filipino music scene. Over 100 local acts will rock out at both the Fête main stage and the eight pocket stages. The main stage will feature Razorback, Up Dharma Down, SinoSikat, Noli Aurillo, Bayang Barrios, Lady-I, Yolanda Moon and Hidden Nikki, together with surprise guests, just to name a few.
Independently organized pocket stages, all free of cover charge as well, will be located in nearby establishments for people to freely jump from one venue to another—Jazz by the PI Jazz Festival Foundation at Bay Leaf Lounge, St Giles; Blues/Soul/Ska by Mamborat Productions x Manila Soul Club at H&J (formerly Heckle and Jeckle); Reggae and World by Rebel Lion Productions at Café Curieux; Indie by Terno Recordings at B-Side; Rock/Pop-rock by Revolver Productions at Saguijo; Hip-Hop by Music Colony at Society Lounge; Electronica by Nomad Massive at Buddha Bar; and Latin at Chihuahua.
