We Asked Locals Musicians How Music Has Helped Them Heal

With Fete dela Musique bringing their “Music Heals” advocacy back for its 30th edition, we asked this year’s festival performers on how this art form became their remedy.


Think of a time when music is not present in our lives, and it’s almost impossible to think of one. Music is a constant companion wherever we find ourselves in, our solace and comfort when alone. And it’s also a way to connect with people all around us, no matter who you are or where you’re from. Thus, Fete dela Musique came about —celebrating music’s role in bringing us all together for the love of music, but also highlighting diversity and talent across genres all over the world.


As Fete dela Musique turns 30 this year, the festivities are definitely much grander and colorful, kicking off the music party with recently-concluded shows —including the Fete Main Stage that featured artists like Dilaw and Autotelic, and the Sunset Gathering with Lee Grane. On June 28, meanwhile, the merriment continues as Poblacion in Makati will serve as a music haven with several Pocket Stages, offering a myriad of music genres for every type of listener. Outside of the metro, Fete is also throwing exciting shows all around the country.






But more than putting together great acts in one stage —or more like, several —together, Fete also puts their cause on the spotlight as they bring back their “Music Heals” advocacy. How music serves as a remedy is a different story for each of us, so we asked some of this year’s Fete performers on how the art form has helped them heal. Find their answers in the gallery below!
