Naturally I wouldn't let this big event just pass by without me documenting it but seeing that the different music stages are scattered around Makati area. I have decided to stick with the rock stage and hip hop stage plus I have this photography project that I am secretly working on.
I first headed to Bside where I thought my buddy Gerome was but we had a bit of communication mishap. So after realizing he no way near the area I just decided to wing it. Bside was packed and was extremely humid so I have just decided to go straight for the hip hop stage inside but before I leave the area I needed to take a couple of photos. Turns out that it was Nyctinasty's set and upon hearing them play I immediately change my mind into staying there (despite the heat) until they wrapped up their set.
|I really like this one for some weird reason.|
After Bside I went straight to Kyss for the Hip Hop stage and also because most of my friends who attended Fete are there. The stage had a late start but as soon as the music started pumping everyone was bobbing their heads to the beat. Emcee Anygma shared some snippets of the history of hip hop in the Philippines.
From the gritty streets of Tondo to the high rise buildings in the south, artists from different locations performed their pieces to show that hip hop is just as rich and diverse as the other genres of music.

After the killer set of Miscellaneous, I decided to call it a night since I have loads of stuff to do and I haven't been getting any proper sleep during this past few days. All in all this year's Fete de la Musique was a great success from what I have witnessed because everyone was really digging it. Hopefully it would be like one big street party again. :)
Next year I'll try and visit all the stages there and probably take portraits of really interesting people. See you to the next Fete! Cheers!
