Woodstock just turned fifty and the idea of that annual three-day celebration of peace, love, and music in the Catskill Mountains in New York still never felt so old. Hundreds of thousands would be in attendance then, all for the event’s spiritual alignment with the anti-war movement. And just like before, MUSIC UNITES!
Spearheaded by AdCamp, MAKE COLLAB NOT WAR, a concert tour, was launched in October last year aiming to establish a collaboration amongst local venues, productions, and artists from different parts of the country. And this year, they are bringing it back with more venues.
From Balanga City, Bataan to the cities of Metro Manila (Quezon City and BGC), Pagsanjan, Laguna in the South, all the way to Baguio City, Cauayan City, and Tuguegarao City in the North, up-and-coming, local independent musicians will once again share the stage to promote ‘bayanihan’ in the coolest possible way.
Bands like The MotherCampers (OPM/indie rock), Bread & Butter (alternative rock), Friends’ Fries (pop rock), Newearth Primates (prog metal/hardcore), Rezpike (thrash metal), Blood Shot Eyes (metal), along with solo acts such as Clay (indie/pop) and Alvin Mendoza (OPM/pop rock), and many more, are coming to these cities and towns to celebrate peace, love, and music.
Stay tuned with these shows, you may check the AdCamp Facebook pages for updates on the tour dates, event posters, and live feeds.
