UP Music Circle, a premier music organization of the University of the Philippines Diliman, which aims to contribute growth to the local music scene by establishing relationships within college music enthusiasts and thereupon generating groups of talented musicians.
UPMC is privileged to sponsor a night during UP's biggest event every year, the UP Fair. Every night during the UP Fair week, around 12,000 audience is expected to gather to witness the most anticipated concerts organized by various notable student organizations. Entitled HARAYA, it is set to take place at the UP Sunken Garden on February 15, 2017.
HARAYA aims to support the creative boom fostered by youth today, and calls for the implementation of free education, to create spaces for quality education accessible to all. We believe this step must be taken to allow the youth to bring these imaginations to life and build a world for the betterment of our entire country.
HARAYA, the sole Filipino-named night of UP Fair 2017, also supports the perpetuation of core Filipino values like kapwa and love for our own. In line with this, HARAYA acts as a stage of opportunities for up and coming homegrown bands to display their musical talent alongside some of the biggest names in Filipino music.
At the strike of midnight, spectacular fireworks will shoot across the sky; a symbol of the turn of a generation and the uprising of the endless power of the country's youth, sprung from our imagination and determination. Join our cause and come live your wildest dreams in the realm of impossibilities at UP Fair: HARAYA.
