Heritage sites as venues
Apart from showcasing Filipino artistry, the tribute also aims to revitalize the interest in Manila’s heritage sites. The artists will be performing in various historic attractions, such as the Manila City Hall, Jones Bridge, Luneta Park, Kartilya ng Katipunan, Lagusnilad, Intramuros, Paco Park, Museo Pambata, and National Planetarium.
A Facebook post by the National Parks Development Committee also says that apart from Hotdog, Hinahanap-hanap Kita Manila also pays tribute to front liners who are at forefront of the fight against the pandemic.
The tribute concert is organized by Intramuros Administration, National Parks Development Committee and Nayong Pilipino Foundation, and presented by Tourism Promotions Board Philippines, Juan Care Foundation Inc., and Viva Music Publishing Inc.
