Filipino singer KZ Tandingan.


Good hits, fun activities, and mouth-watering dishes all in one place


ABU DHABI – After it brought the house down during the first “One Music X” in Dubai last year, the popular music festival is heading for its next stop: Abu Dhabi.

Organisers promise that “One Music X” will bring a one-of-a-kind music festival experience in Abu Dhabi on November 9 at the Mubadala Arena, Zayed Sports City. Gates open at 2pm.

ABS-CBN through Star Music, MOR 101.9 For Life, Myx, One Music PH and The Filipino Channel bring together various cultures that are connected by one thing: music.

The artists

“One Music X Abu Dhabi” will have everyone singing along and moving to the beat of the different genres of music from the lineup of artists composed of KZ Tandingan, Inigo Pascual, Maris Racal, Moira dela Torre, and Aegis.

KZ recently made waves when she joined China’s “Singer 2018”, a TV series where popular singers compete against each other to get the votes of the public, which had KZ competing with British singer and her idol Jessie J. She returns to the “One Music X” stage this year.

Inigo, the singer-actor who became popular for his hit single “Dahil Sa ‘Yo”, is also ready to share his new hits in the Abu Dhabi event, a year after he first stepped on the “One Music X” stage in Dubai.

Joining Inigo and KZ is Maris. She first captured the hearts of the many during her “Pinoy Big Brother” stint in 2014.

Moira will also be serenading the crowd with her distinct voice. The hitmaker is expected to belt out her hits “Malaya”, “Titibo-Tibo” and “Tagpuan”.

Aegis will also be performing. The icons behind “Halik”, “Mahal na Mahal Kita” and “Luha” are sure to rock the crowd with their songs.

“Aside from good music, One Music X Abu Dhabi offers a lot of other activities that everyone in the family and group of friends could enjoy,” organisers said.
