This celebration of culture and tourism has brought in a whole lot of surprises that has made a lot of festival-goers get hyped up and excited. In 2011, when this Malasimbo Music & Arts Festival started, it was already able to attract a lot of attention across the world and has continued to have increasing attendees each year since then. And because of the big spurt of estimated attendees of this year’s festivals, there was a need of change venue and it would also best suit the overall vibe and feel that the festival wants to exude.

The event promotes the appreciation and understanding of the indigenous tribes of the country and as well as the need to take cares of our natural environment. But more than just the ones mentioned, aspiring local artists also use this as a good starting ground to make connections because of all the big names that attend the festival. Every attendee gets to enjoy good music and good food. Food during the festival is also made sure to be tantalizing and unique.

In the past, the festival was always held in an outdoor terrace amphitheater at the foot of Mount Malasimbo. But, for this year, the venue has changed. As much as the original venue was truly breathtaking, many regular festival-goers surely do feel like the sea breeze is perfect for such festival. So the venue of the festival will now be moved to a different venue which is located at White Beach, Puerto Galera. It will be on a private nature reserve park that can facilitate more guests. What makes it such a great venue is that it has more space so there can be more terrain stages and also roaming space for the attendees. Plus, there is also jungle and a virgin beach in the new venue. Also, by changing up the venue, attendees will no longer have to worry and be hassled about the bumpy ride just to get to the venue.

Music-enthusiasts will be glad to hear that a lot of great artists are lined up to perform during the 2019 Malasimbo Music & Arts Festival. Some of them are as follows:

  • IV of Spades
  • Extrapolation
  • Robert Glasper
  • Dannky Krixit
  • Ruby Ibarra
  • Anomalie
  • MuniMuni
  • The Blue Rats
  • I Belong to the Zoo

And many more other artists that will play music that can get you in a trance. And as for the djs lined up, expect to see the following:

  • Danny Krivit
  • Kristian Hernandez
  • Wax’o Paradiso
