Cool Bands, Cool Art, Cool Weather: Tagaytay Art Beat 2020 is the Cultural Festival You Can’t Miss
We all need music and art in our lives, but it’s not everyday that we can enjoy both at the same time. Even rarer is the opportunity to experience a curated lineup of live bands and thought-provoking artwork in a setting that inspires the creativity.
All of these things converge at Tagaytay Art Beat.
First held in 2016, this year's edition of the one-of-a-kind festival promises a soul-enriching experience, whether you’re only beginning to discover the local music and art scene or have been entrenched in them for years.

They join previously announced acts Reese Lansangan and Clara Benin, along with indie rock favorites Ang Bandang Shirley, funk/rock/pop band Lola Amour, Russian music producer BAHR, funk newcomers Flu, noise-pop quartet Rusty Machines, nu-soul outfit Banna Harbera, acclaimed folk artist Coeli, blues rock band UBE, electronid DJ Wicked Adobo and indie folk collective Indayo.
Organizers say more artists will be announced during the third and final Wave.
Look out for exciting art from some of the finest young artists in the country today, including Jappy Agoncillo, Angelica Alvarez, Jill Arteche, Nina Bantoto, Miel Cabañes, Lee Caces, Mykie Concepcion, Ginger De Guia, Claudine Delfin, Katarina Estrada, Matti Kawpeng, Michael Lorenzana, Ana Luciano, Dia Magculang, Luis Pastoriza, Bea Policarpio, Bianca Ruiz, Nathaniel San Pedro, Razel Mari Sta Rita, and Christopher Yap.
