Found this via the BSU Blog. What is it? It is a two day concert scheduled 25-27 April as a tribute to Overseas Filipino Workers. Cool, eh? Proceeds of the concert will be used for the renovation of the San Jose Parish Church in La-Trinidad.
The concert is being organized by the Baguio Market Network in cooperation with The Benguet State University, The Province of Benguet, The Municipality of La Trinidad, and The San Jose Parish Community.
I mistakenly thought that the Baguio Market Network is a network of vendors/stall renters of the Baguio City market but it turns out that it is a company that “deploys wireless infrastructures and provides IT technology”.
Is it me or is that an uncool name (maybe unfortunate even) for an IT company? Really, the image that comes to mind — to me at least — when you say “Baguio Market” is the crowded (and in some parts smelly) Baguio City market. Hehe.
Anyways, this company has a website here. And it promises to do a live broadcast of the Strawberry Woodstock so that OFWs will be able to watch it.
UPDATE: The schedule has been changed from 25-27 April to 29-31 May. It will be held at the same venue. You can read the list of artists who are performing at the Strawberry Woodstock here.
