IT WAS a day of art, dancing, sports, music and fun at Reset6100 at the Bacolod Baywalk last May 31, starting Saturday morning until early Sunday morning.

“Reset was the road to freedom of self-expression, creativity, music and friendship,” says Clyde Harris, who conceptualized Reset6100: Urban Art Exhibition and Music Festival.

“With an intricate program flow, visuals, and music that seeped to the soul, it brought everyone together from the different kind of scenes that are emerging from the urban lifestyle,” he adds.

Reset activities included an art exhibition from various local artists led by the Art Association of Bacolod-Negros. It featured on-the-spot canvas painting, graffiti murals, and 3D art.

It also showcased sports activities like skateboarding, longboarding, BMX, and fixed gear bicycle exhibition, where more than 30 groups from Negros, Cebu, and Iloilo joined the live street competitions.

Reset also featured fire dancing, drum circle, Electric Maskarrave dancers with full costumes, RC planes, kite-flying, and photo booth.

The highlight of the festival was the music party headlined by international and national disc jockeys from Guam, Manila, Australia, San Francisco and London like PharmDJ, Ben Thomson, Eric Gella, VEGA, Jao Varela, Jack Stone, Martin Pulgar, Anton Gacuma, Leandro Zayco and Harris himself.

The DJs performed on a beautiful stage setup that represents Bacolod’s world renowned MassKara Festival built around a massive set up of lights, state-of-the-art sound, and the stunning sunset view at the Baywalk.

“For a day, it became an avenue for underground local artists coming from the different scenes of a vibrant city, looking for an outlet to express themselves. It was truly a festival for the artistic and musically inclined,” Harris says.

“Reset is the birth of a new revolution. It was the Reset team defying the odds and producing something that was fresh and out of the box,” Harris adds.
