After the pandemic put live shows to a halt, the beloved UP Fair is making a comeback!

One of the most amazing things about the University of the Philippines is how it celebrates everything Filipino-including music. That includes the beloved UP Fair, held for an entire week every February. After the pandemic canceled all live shows for the past few years, this tradition is finally making a comeback.

Poised to run from February 14 (yes, you can make this your Valentine date night) until February 18, fairgoers are encouraged to revel in music and stand up for their advocacies.

UP Fair 2023

This year’s UP Fair promises to be absolutely epic. The University of the Philippines’ Diliman’s widely popular Sunken Garden will, yet again, turn into vibrant and fun concert grounds! It’s not just meant for students of UP Diliman, either. UP Fair 2023 is open for everyone!
