COINCHELLA Events and MAS Music Group are thrilled to announce the launch of the first-ever TOMA FESTIVAL (TOMA FEST) at the University of Southern Philippines Gym on April 15, featuring grassroots talents from Cebu and the Visayas region.
TOMA FEST is a premier lifestyle festival for GEN Z music and dance enthusiasts, students, fans, and content creators from the Philippines. This exciting local event is an immersive platform to showcase local music and dance artists, introduce trending new web3 technology, and parade the freshest Street wear fashion.
TOMA FEST will feature WSB Asia’s Visayas street dance tournament, an international brand based in Australia. The festival will showcase the hottest local talents from Cebu, including rappers, battle MCs, singers, and hip-hop music groups. Furthermore, the COINCHELLA web3 community will launch Word on the Street, a series of panel talks from various web3 and blockchain founders who will openly discuss the value of society in the web3 space.
This innovative event has three key objectives – build a growing music and dance community full of creators, songwriters, choreographers, and producers; showcase the unique talent and sound to a global audience; and generate financial support from LGUs, brands, and web3 businesses through collaboration and event activation.

The TOMA FEST program will include live music entertainment and the WSB Asia street dance competition. We will also sell WSB CLUB’s exclusive Gang x WSB Street Clothing featuring Gutter Cat Gang NFT art. Should the opportunity present itself, we will add songwriting sessions, dance workshops, MC rap battles, guest DJs, panel talks, vendor stalls, and web3 activations.
TOMA FEST is the brainchild of Filipino-Australian hip-hop impresario Marco Andre Selorio (aka MÁS). He has previously toured Grammy Award-winning music icons Blackstreet and All-4-One, worked with Chris Brown, Rihanna, Matt Steffanina, and Paris Goebel, and produced hundreds of exclusive events, concerts, and workshops since 1999.
“TOMA FEST is about giving everything a shot, owning the stage, and delivering your best. We recognize the Visayas region as an emerging creative talent hub in Asia. These young stars are going to rise like cream through our TOMA FEST springboard,” said Selorio.
“We can foresee TOMA FEST as a future pathway for international music and dance exchange between Cebu and major cities worldwide. We are inviting music fans, students, brands, LGU’s, and sponsors to witness these local talents from your own backyard,” added Selorio.
