P FEST UK 2014
Finest Workers UK thrilled Pinoy music fans this past April by bringing Eraserheads to the historic Apollo theatre in London. However, as phenomenal as that event was, Finest Workers refuses to rest on its laurels. The company is now gearing up for the first annual P-Festival to be held in LEEDS and London on September 27 and 28, 2014.
The inspiration for P-Festival comes by way of other popular music festivals held around the UK during the summer months. Finest Workers wants to re-create those other festivals with a unique Pinoy flavour. Festival organisers believe a Pinoy-focused event offers an opportunity for the Filipino community to get together to celebrate their culture and their unique brand of music.
The inaugural festival will include six well-known Filipino bands:
• Sandwich – formed by E-Head drummer Raimund Marasigan
Raimund Marasigan - lead vocals
Myrene Academia - bass guitar, backing vocals
Mong Alcaraz - lead guitar, backing vocals, keyboards
Diego Castillo - rhythm guitar, backing vocals
Mike Dizon - drums
• Pedicab – an alternative rock band formed in 2004 (also with Marasigan)
Diego Mapa – lead vocals, synthesizer, percussion
Raimund Marasigan – synthesizer, percussion, vocals
Mike Dizon – drums, percussion
Jason Caballa – guitar, percussion, vocals
RA Rivera – sampler, synthesizer, vocals
• Yano – the Pinoy rock band originally formed in 1997.
Eric Gancio- lead vocals
Samuel Madarang, bass
Rudinino Malonjao, drums
. SQUID 9
. THE DIEGOS - Diego Mapa and Diego Castillo are the Djing duo/remixers known as "The Diegos".
. TOP JUNK is an indie band formed in Quezon City in 2005. The members are Izel Sarangelo Placido (aka Tuesday Vargas) (vocals), Jerico Placido (guitar), and Dennis
P-Fest UK will be held at LEEDS on SATURDAY, September 27 and Fiction Romford on SUNDAY, September 28 from 1pm to 11pm. The venue in Romford is restricted to adults over the age of 18, so ID is required for those planning to attend. It should be another great evening of excellent Pinoy music and social interaction.
