Docdef Productions and Museo Orlina teamed up once again for Tagaytay Art Beat 2 to bring together music, art and fans on a chilly Saturday night in Tagaytay last weekend. The follow-up to the first edition from 2015, the event featured 24 musicians, 17 artists and over a thousand fans from 2 pm to 4 am the next day.
The music & arts festival also put the spotlight on local businesses like Sidlan, Gold Stack Potato Chips, Tripkada, and Novellino Wines. Bandwagon also got the chance to take our online presence offline via our Bandwagon booth.
The Bandwagon team gave out sugary essentials - cupcakes, cookies, and our childhood favorite iced gems - to help fans last throughout the night. We also teamed up with local magnetic poetry kit company, Poetry Magnets PH, to give away a couple of poetry kits to lucky attendees. Guests were invited to drop by the booth and come up with their best 2-liner lyrics for a chance to win a poetry magnet kit.
We took the wordplay to another level when we asked a few artists on the line up to share with us their Tagaytay Art Beat 2 experience with the use of different poetry magnet kits (the Filipino kit was a surprise favorite). Check out what they had to say about this year's Tagaytay Art Beat:
crwn finished working on his answer early, so he decided to use the time wisely by telling guests dropping by the booth all about Bandwagon and our advocacy for regional music.
Moonwlk's Gabbi Buencamino and wordsmith NINNO taking the "interview" seriously. Gabbi took on the Filipino and Kundiman Kits while NINNO sifted through the new Summer Kit by Poetry Magnets PH.
