Philippines’ one-of-a-kind double music festival, The Malasimbo Festival returns for its sixth year running at the beautiful tropical gardens found at the foothills of Mount Malasimbo, ready to attract more party lovers across the region with a variety of music from soul to jazz, hip hop, electronic and more.

The festival blends traditional and contemporary arts, as well as culture together with music performances while aiming to protect and sustain the natural environment by giving a portion of their proceeds to charity.
