So you’re telling me that you didn’t travel across the world to experience a one-of-a kind festival in a one-of-a kind city?

After a hugely successful inaugural year, Wonderfruit made a triumphant return to the Fields at Siam Country Club in Pattaya, Thailand, transforming the space into an oasis and delivering a feast for the senses. From December 17 to 20, 2015, Asia’s cross-cultural, sustainability-driven festival destination combined an international cadre of world-class musical acts alongside cutting-edge interactive installations, visionary art and stage productions, health and wellness offerings, inspiring talks and workshops, and natural adventures in the picturesque landscape of Pattaya, just 150km southeast of Bangkok.

A rare offering in the region, the premiere festival showcased the musical styling of international superstars and local legends alike. The world premiere of Jon Hopkins x Chris Levine’s spellbinding audiovisual collaboration, the iy_project, enthralled audiences with layers of endless laser beams interwoven with hazy modulating clouds of light. Acts like Submotion Orchestra and Rhye hit an emotional chord with piercing soul, while LA-based electro-cirque troupe Lucent Dossier Experience stunned the crowd with soaring aerials and high-intensity dance moves.

 

Alongside impressive music, the festival’s expansive fields were filled with mesmerizing art and stages to marvel at. The festival featured elaborately designed creations that complemented their equally awe-inspiring performers with magnificent designs and colorful materials. From perception-altering interactive art installations to stumbled-upon surprises like a shack housing mixologist Shingo Gokan’s hidden bar — every aspect of the festival’s visual landscape was designed to inspire creativity and curiosity, while using locally-sourced, sustainable materials where possible, such as bamboo, and recycled trash.

We are more than thrilled to see the surprises they have in store for next year!
