The globally conscious, cross-cultural Wonderfruit Festival is a wondrous celebration of art, music and life produced by Thai-based SCRATCH FIRST, which seeks to be a catalyst for positive change by providing a platform to unite creative cultures.
Taking place in lovely Pattaya, Thailand, the one-time quaint fishing village in the 60s has blossomed into the now tourist mecca known for its “anything goes” attitude. There’s a reason that Thailand is called the “land of smiles” and that’s exactly what the festival is sure to produce.
The Wonderfruit experience is packed with music, art, gastronomy, workshops, adventures, and other interactive activities all contained within an exquisite sprawling landscape known as The Fields at Siam Country Club.
Designated areas such as “The Living Stage”, “The Quarry”, “Solar Stage”, “The Farm Stage”, and the “The Rainforest Pavilion” have been carefully manicured to offer guests an immersive experience with musical acts that include Simian Mobile Disco, Nicole Moudaber, Lianne La Havas, Headless Horseman, Eric Volta, Sabo, Buke, Young Fathers, and more.
The festival’s gastronomical delights will be created by celebrated chefs such as Gaggan Anand, Chef Daniel Chavez of Ola, Paolo Vitaletti, Jarrett Wrisley, and Chef Jeriko of Cocotte who be serving mouth-watering Indian dishes, fire-grilled barbecue delights, Peruvian delicacies, an authentic reggae brunch and a farm-to-table banquet.
Wonderfruit is also presenting wellness & adventure activities to strengthen body and mind, wherein guests may participate in belly dancing, Zumba, healing sessions, along with opportunities to practice different styles of yoga with international experts, and including “Camp Wonder” that will be jam-packed with fun activities to keep the whole family busy.
As well as sustainable, Wonderfruit is also big on technology and safety. The event is completely cashless; all will receive an RFID wristband, courtesy of Bangkok Bank, which will making paying easier and worry-free.
Currently, 4-day passes can be purchased for $160. The festival takes place February 16-19. Visit Wonderfruit’s website for more information on securing your tickets, travel, and accommodations.
