"Mabuhay ang OPM!" yelled everyone proudly at the top of their lungs!
Thanks to BACTIDOL®, some of the biggest OPM voices united for the first-ever 12-hour music festival - the Palakasin Ang OPM Collab Sessions event - at the Bonifacio Global City High Street!
"Essentially, the main objective is to champion Pinoy Music by creating awareness and help strengthen the voice of OPM. BACTIDOL® believes in the value of these songwriters, musicians and the Filipino people. We believe in empowering their voice and we believe that it’s a perfect partnership between BACTIDOL®, which helps protect your throat and therefore empowers your voice for 12 hours, and of course OPM, which we feel brings a very strong universal voice to the experience of Filipino people through their songs," explained Xavier Paolo Reyes, Senior Brand Manager for BACTIDOL®.
Throughout the afternoon, numerous passers-by couldn't help but stop, jam and join the fun as OPM artists such as Q-York, Tippy Dos Santos, Young JV and more, performed for the afternoon event! The main event “collab sessions” in the evening had a huge turnout! A full audience was present and more than ready to support and unleash their strong voices with the power line-up of OPM artists that night!
We have to give it up for all the legendary and promising, up-and-coming OPM artists who performed in the main event - Sandwich, Noel Cabangon, Lara Maigue, Dingdong Avanzado, Casper Blancaflor, Davey Langit, Lolita Carbon, Ebe Dancel, Kai Honasan, Christian Bautista, Basti Artadi, Quest and Ogie Alcasid! They had everyone on their feet, singing along and swaying their hands the entire night!
Just like the longevity of the effectiveness and protection against sore throat that BACTIDOL® provides, the "Palakasin Ang OPM" fun and excitement lasted for an amazing 12 hours with fans asking for more! If you missed out on this one-of-a-kind event, check out our MYXclusive coverage in the video below, where we got down with some of the artists to get their thoughts on the Palakasin Ang OPM event!
At the end of the day, the goal of the 12-hour music festival is to strengthen, unite and empower the voice of OPM and we can say that this event has definitely succeeded in doing this! This would not have been possible without the partnership of the Organisasyon Ng Pilipinong Mang-Aawit (OPM) and BACTIDOL®! We'll surely look forward to more events like this in the future to keep the voice of OPM strong and burning!
