Wonderfruit Festival draws thousands to the center of Thailand’s backpacker community in Pattaya. It’s a celebration of art, music, and life. The festival’s vision is to inspire sustainable living and creative solutions to inner conflict.
The festival is about so much more than just music; it’s a holistic experience that cares for the entire individual. From mind-stimulating seminars to healing centers and organic food, Wonderfruit will take care of your mind, body, and soul.
Learn about the six pillars of Wonderfruit and what this event has in store for festivalgoers.
Pillar 1: Music
The music at Wonderfruit serves as both the backdrop for your festival experience and the main event. The lineup is broken up across five stages throughout the day, with a set of incredible artists performing from sunrise to sunrise. The musical spectrum will provide an eclectic mix and a somber mood that Wonderfruit is known for. Check out Nicole Cruise on The Sound Stage, allow Stoic to enchant you during sunset, and Craig Richards to carry you into the next morning. See the full Wonderfruit lineup.
Pillar 2: Arts
From the stages to the art installations, Wonderfruit provides some serious visual stimuli. Awe-inspiring stages will pull you into the musical experience, from the lights to the decor. Wonderfruit features six stage experiences, and you should witness each one. Beyond that, spectacular art installations wow festival goers. This year, the festival has constructed three masterpieces designed by artists from around the world.
Pillar 3: Farm Fresh Food
Wonderfruit takes food as seriously as music. You can look forward to fresh-from-farm produce and organic culinary creations. Choose from food trucks, organic bar, local items, and treats from Dean and Deluca. In addition, Wonderfruit has food camps, where you can enjoy your food with friends while you listen to music and socialize with others. Learn about food origins and farming techniques at Farmacy.
