Rooted in age-old tradition, bonfires and celebration around fire have been weaved in Igorot traditions for hundreds of years. This December 27 and 28, 2014, The Sagada Bonfire Fest rises again with a weekend of music, art and tradition, featuring performances from some of the best folk, acoustic and world music artists in the Philippines and a showcase of Igorot tribal dancing and gong playing.

It’s a true celebration of Filipino sound as we get you dancing to world, ethnic and tribal beats of Talahib People’s Music, Dayaw and the Adinkra Lumads Djembe Community. Witness a stripped down hiphop set from Ron Henley and acoustic performances from Bea Valera and Kio Priest. Get a taste of iris with sublime sounds from Red-I and Soulflower and be enchanted with Tao Aves’ and Bullet Dumas’ beautiful music.

Participating in the Sagada Bonfire Fest is truly meaningful as the event earnings benefit the incredibly talented Ganduyan Bucks, the official little league and junior baseball team of Mt. Province and representatives to the Philippine Series. The boys are incredibly talented but like many athletic programs in the country, are severely underfunded. Income raised from the event will go a long way in purchasing sports equipment, uniforms and in paying for travel expenses for out-of-town competitions.

The Sagada Bonfire Fest is presented by the Sagada Genuine Guides Association (SAGGAS), Ganduyan Bucks and the Local Government Unit of Sagada.
