  • The second Wonderfruit of 2017 just announced its first wave line-up

Wonderfruit, the four-day festival of art, music, food and wellness, is back again for the second time this year and has just announced its first wave line-up.

So far, only nine names have been announced, including Canadian techno music producer/DJ Richie Hawtin, English rapper Roots Manuva, American trio Khruangbin, and English soul-pop singer and song writer Izzy Bizu.

Representing the best of local music will be Khun Narin's Electric Phin Band, the psychedelic Thai wedding rockers whose sound has taken festivals the world over by storm. 

Away from the music, they also promise arts, food and wellness. With one of Wonderfruit's founders, Pete Phornprapha, as the principal partner in the Bangkok branch of Morimoto, it's little surprise to see the modern-Japanese restaurant headlining this year's food lineup, along with other foodie names Straight Outta Thonglor (SOT), Clean Food Caravan, Thailand Young Farmers and The Farmacy.

Taking the place of February's muay Thai workshop from Bua Khao, this time they are bringing you yoga by Hong Kong-born singer Rosemary Vandenbroucke.

Back for its fourth edition, Wonderfruit is set to take place on Dec 14-17 at The Fields at Siam Country Club, Pattaya. Phase 1 tickets are on sale now with adult tickets priced from B3,700-B5,000. Head over to wonderfruitfestival.com to buy them now. 

Accommodation is also provided in the form of boutique tents with details TBA.

 

Note: This story was amended on Aug 4. Chronixx was removed from the lineup, and Khruangbin was added.
