Pinoy Music Council will treat Pinoy music lovers to a day of Original Pinoy Music on September 5, 2014 6AM onwards at the Ayala Triangle in Makati City with the launch of “Pinoy Music Festival: Push Mo Yan Year One.”
Pinoy Music Festival aims to promote, cultivate, discover and embrace Original Pinoy Music and works of Filipino music artists via a one-day open-air and free of charge musical event. The festival will include Flash Mob performances at MRT Stations (Taft, Ayala, Shaw, Cubao and North EDSA) from September 3 – 5, 2014, Pocket street performances along Ayala Avenue from August 18 – 31,2014, OPM-themed street party, “My OPM Playlist” exhibit and the Grand Finale Concert.
The newly formed Pinoy Music Council is composed of different Philippine Music Industry stakeholders such as Organisasyon nf Pilipinong Mang-aawit (OPM), Filipino Society of composers, Authors and Publishers (FILSCAP), Asosasyon ng Musikong Pilipino (AMP), Philippine Association of Recording Industry (PARI), Music Copyright Administrators of the Philippines (MCAP) and Philpop Foundation.
Aside from Pinoy Music Festival, the council is also currently working towards declaring 5th of September as “Araw ng Musikang Pilipino” through a Presidential Executive Order which they already drafted. This is to further promote OPM by introducing its significance in people’s daily activities, educate and encourage more Filipinos to appreciate, support and patronize own music and encourage and inspire new OPM compositions.
