Many thought there's no Fete this year. Even in Alliance's website, there was no mention of Fete until the Manila Jazz Festival at the Sofitel where it was announced. The week that followed, buzz about the event reverberated over the internet.
I arrived late at the Universal Stage where I managed to go in and shoot several bands amidst a thinning crowd. Afterwards, I moved to the Rock Stage. Apparently, I was not allowed entry (the bouncer told me that Pulp, organizer for this year's Fete, is strict and doesn't allow photographers inside).
