The Malasimbo Music and Arts Festival, one of the country’s biggest annual music events, returns on 29 February to 1 March, this time, not only to bring up-and-coming and established local and international artists, but also to help ABS-CBN Foundation Inc.’s Bantay Kalikasan program.
As part of its long-standing advocacy of environmental awareness, the music festival is donating 10 percent of its ticket sales to the foundation.
The venue of this year’s festival is also aligned with the said cause as it will be held at La Mesa Ecopark, considered to be its most accessible location. Founder and festival director Miro Grgic said that La Mesa Eco Park’s amphitheater sounds good and reflects the exact same conditions of Malasimbo’s last amphitheater.
Headlining the festival are known international and local acts Cory Henry and the Funk Apostles, Mike Love, Laneous, Anomalie, Jesus Molina, Matteo Mancuso, Uncomfortable Science, Brigada, Project Yazz and Talata ni Tala.
Foremost DJs Ean Mayor, Roberto Sena, Deej Fabian, Bass Relief, Norris King, Bing Austria, Rei Ka, Bignay Sound System and Jingga Who will also perform.
Music industry experts will also share their experiences about the local and international music industry. An array of rainforest activities is also lined-up for the entire family, such as archery and swimming.
Malasimbo Music and Arts Festival is produced by Volume Unit Entertainment Inc. Tickets are available via www.ktx.ph.
