Lady’s Symphony, one of the rising names in the European electro-pop scene, will be the French Act on June 29 at Puerta Real Gardens in Intramuros. Composed of French DJ Liz Candy, violinist Nyna Loren, and percussionist Narjess Saad, Lady’s Symphony presents a new approach to House Music that takes the audience to a magical trip full of electronic rhythms and strong melodies.

Here’s what Jean-Pierre Dumont, executive director of Alliance Française de Manille, explained:

The annual Fête de la Musique has garnered a huge following through the years. As it gets bigger, we would like to give music fans in the Philippines the best festival experience in every way possible. With the help of the mobile app, we are one step closer to that goal by keeping up with the times when everything is searchable online.

Fête PH is now available for download both on Google Play and Apple Store.
