Every February, iskosiskas, (and friends) all look forward to the long-held tradition that is the UP Fair.

The annual advocacy-led music fair, which returns this year, gathers students and fans from all over the country to see their favorite up-and-coming OPM artists perform at the university's Sunken Garden.

It's also an advocacy movement that aims to give awareness on some social issues. Each day of the weeklong event centers on a theme: human rights protection (Tuesday: Rev); urban poor (Wednesday: Kalye Tunes); sustainable and pro-people transportation (Thursday: Dimensions); education, students' rights, and welfare (Friday: Polaris); and gender emancipation (Saturday: Cosmos).

Organizers have released the official lineup for its entire course next week, February 14 to 18, along with the ticket prices.

Tickets cost P150 for UP students and P250 for non-UP students (exclusive of any ticketing fees). Meanwhile, walk-in prices range from P200 (UP students) to P300 (non-UP students).

Here is the official lineup of UP Fair 2023, along with additional details on obtaining tickets per nightly edition.
