Urban Sketchers Philippines at Fête de la Musique 2015

On the weekend of June 20-21, the world celebrated Fête de la Musique 2015. Urban Sketchers Philippines joined the celebrations for our official monthly sketchwalk and we went to one of the pocket stages in Makati City to sketch and listen to the music of the MOD era.

The sketchwalk was held at Alchemy, a bistro bar with quirky interiors. The MOD stage was set to feature blues, ska, soul, pop, reggae, and folk music from some of the country's best music artists. The sketchers caught the DJ set of Bing Austria and the set of folk musician Ian Penn.

After the sketch session in Alchemy, some of the sketchers transferred to other stages to continue drawing and enjoying the sounds of this year's Fête de la Musique.
