The experience of watching your favorite artists perform right
in front of you is what makes music festivals popular around the world. In the Philippines,
music festivals cover nearly every genre ranging from EDM, rock, pop, alternative indie,
and are patronized by its core market: The Filipino youth.
But a largely evangelical industry, producing various Christian music festivals, has also
created its own parallel world. Just this year, FOUND held its first festival last February
09, 2019 at Circuit Makati Concert Grounds. Headlined by pop duo For King & Country,
the first ever FOUND Music Festival was well-attended by families, music and art
enthusiast, young organization leaders, and students from different universities across
the metro. Fans and new listeners alike stormed in the concert grounds making the first
FOUND Music Festival a success with a whopping 3,000 attendees.
In essence, FOUND aims to be known as a non-denominational and highly experiential
movement that seeks to inspire, engage, and motivate. While the festival’s immediate
audience includes members of Christian organizations, it also serves as a platform for
secular entities to appreciate music and art.
Found 2020 After its massive success, FOUND is coming back this February 08, 2020 and is heading south for its second music festival. To be held at Filinvest City Events Grounds, FOUND’s year 2 will feature Christian folk rock band Rend Collective and worship group CitipointeLive, together with local acts such as IV of Spades,
The Ransom Collective, and Leanne and Naara.
“We had a good first run and we’re expecting to have an even better second one. Our
goal really is to inspire purpose and inclusivity,” says Alexandra Guerrero-Reyes, FOUND
Music Festival’s founder, during the press conference last November 26 at 26th Bistro by
The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf. “We took into consideration what our audience wants,
and that’s feel good music. That’s why we really worked hard to get your favorite local
acts and bring them to FOUND next year,” she adds.
“We’re even including talks, arts and crafts, and other engaging activities this coming 2020,
We want FOUND Music Festival Year 2 to be a full experience for everyone,” says
Stephen Ku, Eventscape Manila’s CEO and FOUND Music Festival’s official event partner.
