Fête de la Musique has become one of the most anticipated music events in the country. Now on it's 25th year, it will be a huge celebration showcasing the best of the best in the local music scene.
“2019 is a big year for Fête de la Musique and we wanted to make sure that this year’s event will be a special one,” said Jean-Pierre Dumont, executive director of Alliance Française de Manille.

Fête de la Musique in Manila is organized by Alliance Française de Manille together with B-Side Productions and the Embassy of France to the Philippines, and is co-presented by Globe Telecom and San Miguel Pale Pilsen.
For its 2019 edition, Fête de la Musique will continue its tradition of producing several main stages across Metro Manila and in six other cities all over the country to offer a variety of music styles.
To kick off the celebration, Fête de la Musique 2019 introduces Music Heals: Fête de la Musique Pop-Up—a pop-up show to inspire, heal, and give hope to the children of the Virlanie Foundation in Makati City—happening on June 8, 2019.
Next up happening on June 15 are three Pre-Fete de la Musique Parties that simultaneously take place at Sunset Collective Stage at KMC Skydeck in Bonifacio Global City, the Rockeoke Stage at Salon de Ning in The Peninsula Manila in Makati City, and the SX Manila Stage at Rizal Open-Air Auditorium in Luneta Park.
The main stage events will kick-off starting on June 21 and 22 in the greater Makati area, June 28 in Intramuros, and June 29 in Baguio, Batangas, Bulacan, Laguna, Palawan, and Pampanga.
Not only will it be a month-long celebration of music, loyal Fête-goers will also get a chance to win round-trip tickets to France through the #FeteStories social media contest by sharing a 25-second video of their fondest Fête de la Musique memories through the years.
