Musikagay-an Festival 2016: The Ultimate Musicfest to Watch Out for this August

Musikagay-an Festival 2016: The Ultimate Musicfest to Watch Out for this August

Remember the local music scene in Cagayan de Oro back in the late 90’s to the mid 2000’s? That was the heyday of the local pop bands and rock bands in the city when they were regularly playing at malls, bars, and in the now defunct Amphitheater. Bands that emerged during those days were such names as Gasulina, Nancy’s Pungent, Tabula Rasa, Beams in Column, and Tekken, just to name a few.


In the spirit of that era, Maddmen Productions in partnership with Limketkai Center presents The Musikagay-an Festival 2016. It’s a cross between a reunion of sorts of Cagayan de Oro’s homegrown indie music artists and a non-stop dance party. You could say it is a Party + Live Bands + DJ music. This music festival is slated for August 20, 2016, Saturday, at the Parking Lot D of the Limketkai Center. Gates will open at 11:00 a.m. and will close at 3:00 a.m.

The Musikagay-an Festival 2016 is hosting an impressive lineup of artists. In the forefront will be the Manila-based pop-rock band, Up Dharma Down.

This pop-rock band with their own brand of sound has already made people take notice with great hits from their 3 albums such as Tadhana, Oo, and Indak.

Also at the forefront will be TJ Monterde, Cagayan de Oro’s very own and now considered the country’s newest acoustic balladeer. His hits include Tulad Mo, Imahinasyon, and Ikaw at Ako.
