One-Day Wonder

February 22, 2016

Get your mitts on tickets quicksticks for this fantastic annual outdoor music and arts festival now in its fourth year at shiny riverfront development Globe Circuit Event Grounds in Makati. One-day wonder Wanderland showcases local and international artists, including indie heavyweights spanning genres from pop to folktronica. Key to its success is that homegrown Philippines talent shares the stage with big international names, making it the country’s most sought-after music festival.

2016’s alluring line-up stars American alt-rockers Death Cab For Cutie and US folk band Bon Iver. Australasian talent is represented by electronic outfit The Naked And Famous from Auckland, NZ, Sydney’s electro duo Panama and Western Australia’s indie pop quartet San Cisco. Local names on stage include upbeat Manila band Cheats, producer and beatmaker CRWN (aka King Puentespina) and eccentric four-piece Oh, Flamingo!, both flying the indie-rock flag.

It’s not just top tunes and hands-in-the-air dancing up for grabs though, with art installations to tempt you to take a wander around the site and a focus on curating community spirit. Past themes have included carnival capers and camping larks. This year’s theme is ‘outer space’, so expect Wanderland to shoot out of this world and leave you on a high…
