Fête de la musique 2013

Fête de la musique 2013

Date: June 15, 2013
Venue: A.Venue Mall Open Parking along Makati Avenue
Time: 5:00 pm


Featuring the country’s best musical talents
& French Electro-Pop sensation Naïve New Beaters

1 Main Stage - 9 Pocket Stages – Over 100 acts – Over 10 hours of live music!

The Alliance Française de Manille, the Embassy of France to the Philippines and B-Side Productions together with the
A.Venue Mall and the City of Makati bring you Fête de la Musique 2013, the most-awaited free-admission music
event of the year.

Fête de la Musique 2013 will be on Saturday, June 15, at 4pm onwards at A.Venue Mall Open Parking (along Makati Avenue). Along 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 Naive 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 6-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.

From4PM to 2AM, over 100 local acts will rock out at both the Fête main stage and the 8 pocket stages. The main stage will feature Razorback, Up Dharma Down, Barbie Almalbis, Kitchie Nadal, SinoSikat, Noli Aurillo, Bayang Barrios Lady-I, Yolanda Moon Hidden Nikki and 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. They are as follows: 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 & Jeckle); Reggae & 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 Time; and Latin at Chihuahua.

Fête de la Musique 2013 is organized by the Alliance Française de Manille, the Embassy of France to the Philippines and B-Side Productions in partnership with A.Venue Mall, the City of Makati with the support of Institut Français, The National Commission for Culture and the Arts, The Best Western, San Miguel, Red Bull, Baga Manila, Paris Délice, the Department of Tourism, Myx TV, Deezer, Business World, High Life, Radio High, Radio Republic, Barangay Poblacion, MAPSA and Makati Police.
