Here's your guide to Fête de la Musique.

No need to look for part-time jobs or beg your parents for ticket funds—the Fête de la Musique festival is here once again to satisfy your music needs for free. Again: for free! A global event celebrated every June, Fête de la Musique is also known as World Music Day. The Fête force is strong in the country, always has been, and this year's festival promises to be another great event.

For one, the festival is not just one night but two weekends. It kicks off this Saturday, June 17, 4 p.m. in Makati. 

While the main stages have been canceled, whopping 30 bars, restaurants, and art spaces in Makati will serve as pocket stages, each one dedicated to a certain genre. In the mood for acoustic tunes? Head to A Space, where everyone from Reese Lansangan and Jensen Gomez (who collaborated on the song “Maybe”) to Ang Bandang Shirley and Ben&Ben will be performing. There’s a place for everyone, from pop-rock band Miles Experience at Saguijo, to electronica producer-beatmaker crwn at The Belle & Dragon, to hip-hop artist NINNO at Dulo MNL. Your biggest problem will be narrowing down your choices and plotting your gig-hopping schedule. Some of your favorites will be performing in more than one place on the same night so keep an eye out for that when you check the schedule.

The festivities aren’t just in Makati—Kjwan, Razorback, and other acts will be rocking out at The RoadHouse in Manila Bay on June 17, and DJs will be taking the stage on the same day at SAVA Beach Bar in El Nido, Palawan.

The next week, the main stage moves to Intramuros, where you can catch indie favorites like Autotelic, Jensen & the Flips, and Sud at the Puerta Real Gardens on June 23. Looking for something else? Jazz artists will perform at the Arya Residences in the Fort on the same day.

The last day of the festival, June 24, will be held in Palawan, where OPM mainstays Kitchie Nadal and Kjwan will headline the festival at Cory Park in Puerto Princesa, with more acts playing on the world stage at The Gypsy's Lair Art Café.

Fête de la Musique offers something for everyone, and while you may be tempted to stick to the acts you love, this is the best time for you to explore and check out the acts you’re not familiar with. Look them up or let fate decide by just randomly picking a venue from the list. What have you got to lose anyway? Admission is free, and you’ve got all the time in the world (or, okay, maybe just a bit more time) for spontaneity on weekends. Who knows—you might just end up with a new favorite.

As with all music festivals, remember to bring your phone (to book transpo and find your friends in the crowd—not to spend all night taking Snaps and Stories!), power bank, ID, cash for food and drinks, and a sense of adventure. Happy gig-hopping!

To the Person Who Does Not Know Any 1D Song

By: CJ Reyno

Never in my wildest dream I imagined to meet someone who does not know a single One Direction song or who does not even know, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and err… Zayn Malik. How did you spend your teenagehood without listening to their songs? The disrespect to my #StyPayHorLikSon. My initial reaction, Vas Happenin’?

Since I was 12 years old, that was way back on 2012, One Direction songs have been my official life soundtrip, my go-to songs whenever I feel happy, sad, mad, excited, and etch. I can still remember how people went crazy just to attend their concert here in the Philippines. I must admit, I was one of those. LOL. The group was also dubbed as, “The Biggest Boyband in the World”. They were an era. You really left me in awe when you told me that you do not know a single One Direction song. Their songs are gold. But I was a little hopeful when a new messaged popped up on our conversation, “Hey I know one, Make You Beautiful”.

You do not know how my world collapsed after reading your message. I would like to say that I appreciate the effort, thanks, but they do not have a song entitled, Make You Beautiful, because it is, What Makes You Beautiful. I tried to explain but you said that they are just the same. (Tip: Never fight with a Directioner when it comes to this because we will not let our guards down). No! They are not the same. How can you make this big mistake? LOL. What Makes You Beautiful is One Direction’s debut song. Almost everyone knows this, “you’re insecure, don’t know what for,” ring a bell? The music video of this surpassed 1 billion views on Youtube. On my 21 years of existence, you are the very first person who told me this “I-Thought-It-Was-A-Joke-But-You-Are-Serious” statement.

As a persuasive fangirl, I thought to myself that I should make you appreciate their music, that you should know that it is What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. The group may be in hiatus but their music is and will always remain superior. You are hard-headed lad. We even when to the point where you challenged me to treat so I can make you watch their music video. Am I even surprised that I agreed to this? HAHA. I feel like an agent trying to persuade her customer to buy a property on our company. You do not know how happy I was when you sent me your video listening to What Makes You Beautiful. I felt like I successfully closed a deal with my client. Not to exaggerate but I really jumped because of happiness after watching your video. It was the first message I checked that morning. Thank you for your effort, so much appreciated. Funny how our conversation starts with your innocence on One Direction until it goes deeper and last longer. Up All Nigh conversations which turned to almost Midnight Memories. Ironic how a Directioner had developed an admiration on someone who dislikes her favorite boys? Just like One Direction’s song, Change My Mind, “Never felt like this before. Are we friends or are we more?” I guess, like Liam’s line on Love You Goodbye, “It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end. It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends.”

I was happy that I made you listen to One Direction. At least I made you appreciate and made you aware that there is a song called, What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. I am happy that you already found your Girl Almighty. Wish me luck on finding my Summer Love. xoxo, Your Directioner friend
