THE TAGAY­TAY ART BEAT is a mi­cro­fes­ti­val of art and mu­sic, or­ga­nized by Museo Or­lina and Doc Def Pro­duc­tions to bring a new wave of artists to those who want to hear and see some­thing dif­fer­ent. Mi­cro-fes­ti­vals are noth­ing new, but what made this year’s Art eat s ecial is the ow of the fes­ti­val and the lo­ca­tion, breezy Tagay­tay. What Museo Or­lina cre­ated was an in­ti­mate gath­er­ing of peo­ple in one space, with a dif­fer­ent vibe from what they are used to in the city.

The mu­seum is found along a sloped drive­way with a cob­bled path­way go­ing down to the mu­seum’s gar­dens, where the bands played. Upon en­try, the ow wor ed in a way that made visi­tors pass by all the art­wor s be­fore reach­ing the con­cert grounds. This was an in­ge­nious move on the part of Museo Or­lina, be­cause rather than ma ing the art­wor s merely the bac drop of who­ever was play­ing, they made the mu­seum an in­te­gral part of the event. You could lis­ten to lo­cal tal­ents such as The Ran­som Col­lec­tive, Farewell Fair Weather, or Bullet Du­mas while chat­ting with the young emerg­ing artists whose wor s were show­cased through­out the venue. Three oors up, there was an open-air rooftop where DJs spun and free beer was served.

The goal of Museo Or­lina and Docdef Pro­duc­tions was to ex­pose peo­ple to the pos­si­bil­i­ties of both art and mu­sic at the same time; to ma e them re­al­ize that there are com­mon­al­i­ties in each—such as artis­tic ex­pres­sion, which ev­ery­one present could re­late to. This event was more than a cel­e­bra­tion of the youth; it was also an open in­vi­ta­tion for new artists to hone their tal­ents in­side a space where its owner molded dif­fer­ent ma­te­ri­als into new and ex­cit­ing shapes.
