This year’s Fête de la Musique Philippines will have a stronger travel feel to it. Set across various cities and provinces in the country, it will feature both local and international acts from diverse genres. Dubbed as #FeteFromMyIsland, the virtual event will showcase Original Pilipino Music (OPM) legends and select musical artists from Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. It also includes performances from French artists and other foreign acts.
