If you’re unfamiliar with the festival Wonderfruit, here’s the low down. In its third year, the event take place in Pattaya,Thailand on The Fields at Siam Country Club from December 15th-18th. It’s regarded as Thailand’s globally conscious boutique camping festival and is centered on six pillars: music, arts, farm-to-feasts, wellness, workshops and family.
The idyllic, destination location may be one of it’s most appealing aspects. But the 2016 Phase 1 lineup ain’t too bad either. So far the festival has announced a roster of internationally-acclaimed musicians including live drum-and-bass ensemble Rudimental, along with Scottish hip-hop trio Young Fathers, JUNUN featuring Shye Ben Tzur & The Rajasthan Express, Kate Simko & London Electronic Orchestra, Guyanese dub music hero Mad Professor, Brooklyn’s revered dance producers Wolf + Lamb, Matador, Nastia – plus many more artists to be announced soon!
In addition to the epic music, Wonderfruit will also feature a stage made out of rice (saaaay what?!), an interactive area for kids, and a sustainability pledge to offset the festival’s carbon footprint by investing in a biodiversity reserve in Indonesia.
“We’ve played festivals all over the world but never in Thailand. Wonderfruit sounds like an incredible party and holiday all in one – we can’t wait to go… Shout out to the organisers for pledging to be carbon neutral too.” – Rudimental
