Last week, we were invited by DOPE MNL for a media discussion at The Keg and talked about the upcoming event next week. DOPE MNL is a potent production with a keen ear cocked to all genres of local independent music. Having produced three gigs in the first month of its birth, DOPE MNL is seeking to expand its repertoire with the help of like-minded benefactors, reviving Meiday's legacy of keeping the local music scene fierce and free.

The Keg is located in Manila's premier hotspot, The Fort.

In collaboration with Dr. Martens Philippines, young firebrand production DOPE MNL is about to re-ignite the music scene with POPFEST: a music festival patterned after NYC Popfest but with Manila's madness, featuring the best and brightest of local talent. In the spirit of Meiday! Meiday!'s advocacy of keeping independent music financed for the bands, free for the crowd, and ferocious all around,

Sell Our Door
Bee Eyes
The Wilderness

After the talk, we were invited to visit Dr. Martens store nearby. I wonder if they have any plans of bringing Agyness here in the Philippines XD

This floral pair from Dr. Martens is full of awesomeness, agree?

Let's all end our hot summer days with some cool music from our indie bands.
POPFEST will be free-admission, kicking off at 4pm in the open air of
Fort Strip Plaza.

See you there~
