The University of the Philippines’ (UP) Fair has always been one to look out for. With festivities spanning over a week and five different musical events, the UP Fair has more or less turned into a music festival for both Iskos and non-Iskos alike.
REV Music Festival
First on the list is the REV Music Festival happening on Tuesday, February 13 at the Sunken Garden. Organized by the university’s Sigma Kappa Pi Fraternity and the Sigma Kappa Delta Sorority, the opening festival has the biggest lineup amongst the five. Catch BP Valenzuela, Philia, Rice Lucido, Dong Abay, Markus Highway, Bobby Balingit, The Jerks, Luna, Slapshock, Quezo, Greyhoundz, Pugo en da Band, Smooth Sal Sweet, Carmensita, Cordcoil, The Roomhoppers, The MotherCampers, Ben&Ben, Autotelic, Sileph, The General Strike, Plagpul, Lion and The Scouts, the UP Repertory Company, and Sinagbayan!

Go on an out-of-this-world adventure with the UP JMA and the University Student Council on Friday, February 16 as they proudly present Cosmos! They might have the shortest lineup but Cosmos is just as powerful with Ben&Ben, Callalily, Hale, Mayonnaise, Munimuni, Itchyworms, IV OF SPADES, and Silent Sanctuary! UP students can purchase tickets for PHP80 and outsiders for PHP160 here.
Roots Music Festival
Closing the UP Fair 2018 are the UP Economics Society and UP Underground Music Community with Roots Music Festival. If you’re too busy to attend the other days, this is perfect for you! Orange & Lemons, tide/edit, IV OF SPADES, Pedicab, FRANCO, Sandwich, Autotelic, Aegies, Imago, Ben&Ben, and Urbandub are all set to grace the Roots stage at the Sunken Garden.
