Homonym and National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) is joining forces to host the Philippine’s very first music conference and festival Sonik Phillipines.

Set to take place on October 4 & 5 at Green Sun, Makati, the conference in the day will see the attendance from the government and private sector network and discuss the latest development in music business — from discussions involving technology, intellectual property, artist management to marketing and publishing.

Speakers from the region and beyond have been invited to offer their expansive viewpoint. And ultimately, to discuss partnership centred around the Filipino context and experience.

“There is a need for us to reach out to the world and show them what we have here,” said Homonym Founder and CEO Mike Constantino.

“The implications that this would have to the local music scene are far-reaching and immeasurable,” he added.

Tailored to not only satisfy artists and marketers, the event is aimed at pushing the local music sector towards an increasing network opportunities with other Ministries of Culture around the world.

The organizer and partners see the importance of this effort especially after a successful partnership with the Embassy of Spain in organising the Posporos concerts, and sending a Philippines delegation to the Bizkala International Music Experience in Bilbao, Spain.

“The NCCA is excited to invite foreign stakeholders to come and see what the Philippines has to offer to the world, and in exchange, Filipino music practitioners can look forward to best practices from seasoned veterans from other countries,” said Virgilio S. Almario, Chairman of the NCCA.

Brands confirmed as speakers include Twitter, Warner Music, SOCAN Foundation and more.

Sonik Philippines will also be partnering with the Taiwan Ministry of Culture, adding dozens of music executives and three Taiwanese artists to the roster. For more information about the conference programs, please click here.
