The third installation of Thailand’s globally conscious boutique camping festival Wonderfruit has announced its return to The Fields at Siam Country Club, releasing both an eclectic first wave lineup and a new carbon footprint initiative. Centered on six pillars—music, arts, farm-to-feasts, wellness, workshops and family—phase 1 features a roster of internationally-acclaimed musicians, speakers, workshops and activities designed to deliver another unforgettable holiday deep in the lush tropics of Thailand.
Musical headliners include live drum-and-bass ensemble Rudimental, along with Scottish hip-hop trio and Mercury Award recipients for Best Album Young Fathers. Rounding out phase 1 is a genre-bending collection of artists including 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, and Nastia, along with local favorites Rasmee Isan Soul, Zero Hero, Yena, Srirajah Rockers, The Superglasses Ska Ensemble and DJ Dragon.
International catalysts of fostering a more eco-conscious society, festival organizers Scratch First pledge to offset this year’s carbon footprint by investing in the Rimba Raya Biodiversity Reserve, a diverse ecosystem in Indonesia. Every ticket purchased plays an integral role in the preservation of a precious natural resource. With a vision of cultivating creativity and inspiring personal responsibility, Wonderfruit Festival is slated to cement its position as one of the top sustainable festivals in the world.
Souls aiming to rejuvenate the body can find balance with exemplary instruction from international Ashtanga master Danny Paradise and Hatha yoga master Anastasis, who are spearheading the wellness schedule. Guests can partake in the inquisitive bike trails lining the venue courtesy of Life Cycling, learn the basics of Muay Thai with legendary boxer Buakaw, or take a lesson in the intricate art of floral sculpture from master designer Sakul Intakul.
