Ear-candy for adventurous music fans.
Wonderfruit, the four-day festival of art, music, food and wellness, is back for the sixth time this Dec 12-16 and has announced its first wave of artists.
As we’ve come to expect, the list isn’t exactly brimming with household names, but there is plenty that should prick up the ears of adventurous listeners, from a renowned BBC DJ personality to a founding member of British trip-hop legends Massive Attack.
Among the first names to catch our attention Floating Points, the genre-blurring English producer behind one of the decade’s most acclaimed electronic albums (2015’s Elaenia), and French house producer-singer duo Breakbot & Irfane of the ubiquitous summer hit “Baby I’m Yours.”
Elsewhere on the lineup there’s Daddy G of Massive Attack acclaim, Ed Banger Records’ founder Busy P, expansive Swedish electronic duo Gidge, Japanese ambient-pianist Midori Hirano and Germany’s Acid Pauli, a 20-year veteran of the club scene.
Festival-goers can also expect sets from British-German producer Daniel Brandt & Eternal Something of London’s Erased Tapes, reggae crew Trojan Sound System, rising sought-after DJ Sonja Moonear, British singer-songwriter Yasmin, and a slew of locals led by rockers Mattnimare and The Richman Toy.
The full phase 1 lineup is as follows: Acid Pauli, Alejandro Castelli, Arp Frique & Family, Binh, Bobby., Breakbot & Irfane, Busy P, Colleen 'Cosmo' Murphy, Craig Richards, Daddy G (from Massive Attack), Daniel Brandt & Eternal Something, DOTT, Douglas Dare, Electric Vocuhila, Felix Dickinson, Floating Points, Foxy, Garden City, Movement, Gidge, GUTS, Hatis Noit, Maarja Nuut & Ruum, Matanza, Mattnimare, Midori Hirano, Miret, Myd, Nick The Record, Powder, Rival Consoles, Sainte Vie, Sonja Moonear, The Richman Toy, The Venopian Solitude, Trojan Sound System, Willow and Yasmin.
This year’s festival stills put a focus on sustainability, eco-friendliness and wellness, allowing attendees to meet inspiring pioneers from these fields.
