The Pinoy Playlist Music Festival is the brainchild of singer, songwriter, and producer Moy Ortiz. His idea strongly resonated with the advocacy of talent manager and writer Noel Ferrer and of National Artist for Music Ryan Cayabyab.
It is managed over-all by the Bonifacio Art Foundation, represented by its Managing Director Maria Isabel Garcia.

The festival they started last year brought together over 100 artists for an extravaganza of Filipino-made music. This year, the festival is encouraging participating artists for collaborations across genres, as well as important discussions other than just music.
“We had so much fun last year and we wanted to do it again this year, and this time, with a twist,” said Ryan Cayabyab. This year, honorees will also be given a token of gratitude for their contribution to Filipino music, especially in music education.

Pinoy Playlist Music Festival elevates the public’s consciousness that homegrown music goes beyond being a form of entertainment, but a living tradition—the binding “glue” that forms, strengthens, and moves the Filipino community.
In line with this, Pinoy Playlist Music Festival will be conducting PPMF-X—their first interactive team teaching 500 public school kids from Taguig on October 10, a day before the festival starts. Topics will include music and the brain, music for self-expression, and music in culture-making.

Connect with the local music culture at the Pinoy Playlist Music Festival 2019 this October at the BGC Arts Center! As the famous Ryan Cayabyab song goes, ito ay atin, sariling atin (this is ours, truly ours).
