It was actually my third time to attend the Fete de la Musique. My first was back when I still lived in France and my second was when I watched a French New Wave indie band named Naive New Beaters in 2013. I attended the Fete with my usual concert best friend, who invited me […]Read More Fete de la Musique: The story behind the spectacle
I admit that it was still worth the hype and excitement despite picking my first Rakrakan experience in 2014.

I never realized how wrong I had been until late 2014, […]Read More Incubus Live in Manila 2015: If not now, when?
70 BANDS, 3 STAGES, 1 HUGE EVENT… These are the formula of what Rakrakan Festival was like. Our journey started as we received the brochure on the known event back in Bazooka Rocks III, and my then-concert buddy and I were so captivated with the event description that we bought ourselves a pre-sale ticket and […]Read More Rakrakan Festival ’14: The journey to local music realm
Words cannot simply explain how I have enjoyed this amazing alternative rock, pop punk and even metal core concert festival. I am awfully glad to have this opportunity in discovering new bands, enjoying the bands I am already familiar with, singing, moshing and cheering with the energetic crowd, living the concert culture scene, availing watching […]Read More Bazooka Rocks III Two-Day Pass: The Unforgettable Month-Ender Concert
