Apart from the musical performances, the festival will also include a wide variety of music programs, such as open mic challenges, podcasts, exclusive premieres and workshops will also be staged.
A special stage for a concert by PhilPop’s past champions and finalists has also been scheduled, alongside a special online showcase featuring songs from the musical Rak Of Aegis. The complete festival schedule can be found here.
