Living the Dream with Spongecola and Emerging OPM Greats at the Apollo Music Festival

Wazzup Pilipinas!
Friday night's usual traffic jam last November 14, 2014 was not a concern for us since we partied all night with some of the great local OPM bands at Circuit Makati. The night was more than spectacular hearing fabulous music live from the performers.

The very first inter-university music festival coming from two of the country's biggest universities, the UP Junior Marketing Association (UPJMA) and DLSU Business Management Society (DLSU BMS), rocked the night with awesome performances from great bands highlighted by the sensational OPM band Spongecola led by Yael Yuzon.

The Apollo Music Festival also featured new artists in town from the famous community online SoundCloud Philippines. SoundCloudPH is an organization of Filipino music enthusiasts who have a strong passion in creating and appreciating music. It is a community committed to improving their craft and supporting fellow musicians and artists. Filipino musicians can exchange tips, ideas and best practices.

There was the SoundClound Philippines Song Writing Competition. The judges were Njelde Mesa,  Nonoy Tan , Jim Paredes and Ito Rapadas! The winner of the night was Mic Manalo who brought home a whopping 10k cash prize.

Other bands include She's Only Sixteen, the Cohens, The Ransom Collective plus a lot more top emerging bands!
Thank you also to Marc Marasigan Music for living the dream with us last Friday! Bravo to Lucio Pua!

  1. wow!! this was a truly amazing and enjoyable event!!

  2. Congrats to the winner! Keep it up!

  3. I really admire UP and DLSU for promoting local OPM bands instead of foreign bands for their first ever interuniversity music festival because I myself am a fan of OPM music. I also like to give a thumbs up for the suppoters as seen from the picture and it is good to see that there are still people supporting local OPM bands.
