“One Music X” or “1MX” will feature performers like KZ Tandingan, Yeng Constantino, Darren Espanto, Sandwich, Itchyworms, Mayonnaise, IV of Spades, Agsunta and more surprise guests.
Why it took a while to bring the show in Manila, Star Music audio content head Jonathan Manalo explained they wanted to establish the festival as global before bringing it home to the Philippines.
“Talagang deliberate na gawin yung first dates niya outside the Philippines para magkaroon siya ng image na global. Very strategic na magsimula muna outside the Philippines and then iuwi natin,” Manalo said Friday during the music festival’s media launch.
The first “One Music X” took place in Dubai in 2017 followed by another show in Abu Dhabi, UAE in 2018. It was only last May when the festival was staged in Singapore.
Its vision, Manalo said, is to make “One Music X” a world-renowned festival that can be brought to different countries to showcase Filipino music and talent.
“Ito yung vision ng 1MX na magkaroon tayo ng festival na pwede natin iexport saan man sa mundo. Ito yung vision natin na lumaki siya nang lumaki hanggang madala natin yung festival na ito sa ibang parte ng mundo,” Manalo said.
The anticipated music festival is set to happen on November 22 at the Centris Elements in Quezon City.
“One Music X” spearheaded by Star Music, MOR 101.9 For Life!, MYX Philippines, One Music PH and The Filipino Channel (TFC) was launched in 2017 with a goal to showcase Filipino talents on the world stage.
