Red Hot Chili Peppers to join international jam at Clark music fest
The 7107 International Music Festival this coming Feb. 24 will headline International band Red Hot Chili Peppers along with other international and local artists.
“It has been our personal mission to promote the Philippines; its, its talent, its culture and its music throughout the world,” said Tina, Herrera, the festival’s executive producer.
Herrera said she is thrilled that 71027 International Music Festival will serve as unique platform for our local artists to shine side by side with legendary international artists.
“Through this, we are able to push our local talent on to the world stage and open up avenues for local artists to collaborate with international acts, further pushing their music to a global audience,” she said.
The festival is a two-day outdoor music event featuring a spectacular line-up of bands from around the world.
To avoid the hustle and bustle of the heavy traffic in Metro manila, the festival will be held in Global Logistics City in Clark, Pampanga.
“We wanted enough room to play around with. The over 100 hectares of land is the perfect canvas to start the festival,” Herrera said.
Concerts goers will also get the chance to do a bit of travelling veering away from their usual environment.
Boosting the country’s tourism
With different performance around the world, the festival will not only be attended by Filipinos but by people around the globe.
Organizers said the festival is expected to attract more than 20,000 concert goers across Asia and Europe.
Parts of the proceeds of the festival will be used to rebuild, rehabilitate and fund relief projects for the victims of Super Typhoon “Yolanda” (Haiyan).
“We want 7101 International Music Festival to be a reminder to our countrymen that music moves, and help is on the way,” Herrera said.
Organizers assure that concert goers need not to worry about the schedule and how to go to the venue.
The 7107 team found a solution by introducing the festival’s smartphone application.
“Our team has developed an app for the festival wherein attendees can keep track of what’s going on as well as get to know all the bands that will be present in the event,” said Mike Pio Roda, co-founder and producer.
The music festival will be shown on MTV Asia and other Asian channels to cater to a larger audience.
