The celebration will continue on its 2nd day on Thursday, June 23, 2016 at the Puerta Real Gardens in Intramuros.

Joining these main stages are over 20 pocket venues around the metro which will cater to all musical genres for a complete musical experience.

This year, the festival will be headlined by the Philippines’ finest bands and musicians such as Up Dharma Down, Kjwan, Pupil, Imago, Yolanda Moon, Bituin Escalante, Kat Agarrado (of Sinosikat), Gabby Alipe (of Urbandub), and many more.

Also joining the celebration this year is French singer, composer, and Youtube sensation, Nathan Zanagar.

Zanagar will be performing in Manila for the first time for this event on Saturday June 18, on the two main stages of Fete de la Musique, namely A-Venue Mall Parking Lot at 7:05 pm and Greenbelt 3 Park at 9:45 pm.

He is a 23 year-old singer, with almost 2 million views on YouTube since 2010. He is an eclectic, emotive and promising artist.

He started his music career in 2010 by writing ‘Hide and Seek’ for the original soundtrack of a movie which is a mix of gospel and rock.

In 2013, Nathan Zanagar performed during lots of concerts in Paris, in the Nouveau Casino, Petit Bain and also in the Zèbre de Belleville.

At the end of 2013, he recorded a cover of “The Hounds of Winter” by Sting, which was used for the show Comment vous racontez la partie by Yasmina Reza.

After this English song came out, Nathan performed in New York in May, especially in the Bitter End, for three concerts, and after that in Copenhagen, in June 2014. He mostly sings his original titles in English for the purpose of a new project.

In autumn 2014, he returned to the studio for the production of the French project. He recorded his first pop-rock single “Le Jeune” (The Young), an ode to youth that he wrote and composed himself.

Also appears on the single is the song “Tour Eiffel” in a live version. Two concerts in Paris followed, at the Baron and the Trois Baudets, and his most recent gigs took him to London where he entertained crowds at The Old Queen’s Head and the prestigious Proud Camden.

He is now back in the studio and will release a new EP (Extended Play) in autumn 2016.
