Pinoy Playlist is a 6-day celebration of Filipino musical talent across all genres and decades. Co-curated by Maestro Ryan Cayabyab, Moy Ortiz and Noel Ferrer.

Pinoy Playlist brings together over a hundred artists for an extraordinary Pinoy Music festival.

This was born out of the idea that we have to revive the foundations of our collective memory through music as Filipinos. This is living proof that Filipino musicians are committed to create living memories out of the music we create.

Gary V, Mr. Pure Energy in XS
October 13 (Xavier Sports Center)

Just three months after his double health scare, Gary Valenciano is back to doing what he loves best: performing for the people.

It’s his way of giving thanks for receiving a second lease on life, so to speak. Mr. Pure Energy, despite of all that he has gone through the past several years, has so much to thank for.

With all the blessings and the miracles that he has received, the multi-awarded artist feels that it is time for him to give back. 

Mr. Pure Energy will be staging “Gary V, Mr. Pure Energy in XS” a fund-raising concert on October 13, 2018 at the Xavier Sports Center in Greenhills, San Juan. Proceeds from this concert will go to the Xavier School charities.
