Some of P-Pop’s top groups graced the SM Mall of Asia Arena on July 15th to promote Pinoy music on a worldwide stage. The 6-hour show, which was attended by droves of fans in person, as well as via livestream, featured incredible performances by BGYO, BINI, MNL48, ALAMAT, P-POP Generation, LITZ, 1ST.ONE, VXON, Press Hit Play, Dione, Calista, R-Rules, YARA, G22, DAYDREAM, as well as OPM greats, Zack Tabudlo and The Juans; John Walter capped off the show with a live performance of the festival’s theme song, “Tugatog.” While all of the artists showcased their own tracks, the major highlights of the event were the epic collaboration stages. The show kicked off with a strong performance from MNL48, BINI and P-POP Generation, where they individually sang their tracks, “River,” “Born To Win,” and “Prinsesa,” and then with all of the groups coming together on stage to sing the latter track. Throughout the concert, we watched collaborations between: P-POP Generation/R-Rules/Calista, YARA/Press Hit Play, DAYDREAM/VXON, Press Hit Play/LITZ, G22/Dione, ALAMAT/BINI, BGYO/MNL48, 1st.One/The Juans, and of course, an exceptional production number by 1st.One, VXON, ALAMAT, and BGYO.
Congratulations to the Tugatog Music Festival Team for putting on a fun and successful show, as well as all of the artists who participated in the event and performed incredible stages for their fans all around the world. Here’s to hoping that the Tugatog Music Festival will be an annual event and will continue to be a platform to further showcase Original Pinoy Music!
