Gig Life Asia is still selling ticket packages for Wonderfruit 2017, one of the biggest music and arts festivals in Asia
We’ve been gearing you up for this music and arts festival since last year, and it’s not too late to get in on the hype. Originally scheduled for December 2016, Wonderfruit – reputed notoriously as the Burning Man of Asia – was postponed to 16 February due to the passing of the Thai king, and it’s now raring to go in a gargantuan way.
What makes Wonderfruit stand out? While many large-scale music festivals tend to guzzle tonnes of energy that bear negative impacts on the earth, this sustainable festival hopes to generate some change. On its third year, Wonderfruit – that takes place in the rural countryside of Pattaya – scores a point for Gaia by partnering up with biodiversity reserves to reduce its carbon footprint, so rest assured you’ll be partying without polluting.
Entertainment-wise, Wonderfruit 2016 features an eclectic mix of dance and live acts, fashion and design areas, eco-friendly art installations, and even glamping options so you can boogie in your backyard. Top music acts for the punters include hip-hop group Young Fathers, indie icon Shura, drum & bass unit Rudimental, and techno doyenne Nicole Moudaber.
If we’ve got you craving for a quick getaway, you’ll be happy to know that four-day pass tickets (plus f&b vouchers worth 2,000 baht) are still available for SGD250, made by possible by festival partners, Gig Life Asia. These package-bundling folks are known for taking care of all your festival travel needs – flights, accommodation, transfers, tickets, you name it. So keep in touch with Gig Life Asia for more perks around the region. Pssst, a lil’ birdie told us that they’re planning something special for this year’s Ultra Music Festival too.
