Sinag: Festival of Radiance coincides with the 50th anniversary of the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP), which officially opened its doors on September 8, 1969. The lights are set to "dance" to the music of "Pagdiwang sa Ginintuang Pagsilang," which was written by National Artist for Literature Bienvenido Lumbera and orchestrated by National Artist for Music Ryan Cayabyab.

Aside from the show, you can also see beautiful lanterns hanging on the façade of CCP's main building. These lanterns are made by Kapampangan crafters led by Arvin Quiwa. The Center's front lawn is also graced by a massive art installation by Abdulmari “Toym” Imao Jr. It features a 20-foot sundial, which represents the significance of arts and culture in society through time.
