Thailand’s new favourite music, food and arts festival Wonderfruit is returning to Chonburi and it’s just released an astounding full lineup.
The pioneering, sustainability focussed lifestyle festival has announced a swoon-worthy lineup featuring a host of world class musicians and DJs.
Hip-hop fans will rejoice with the addition of Mos Def to the main stage along with R&B duo Rhye, London based downtempo producer Catching Flies, live techno pranksters Elektro Guzzi and American nu-disco hero Goldroom. Completing the international contingent are Viceroy, Daedeleus, Com Truise, Papercutz, Anchorsong, Arjun Vagele, Ocean Lam and Gaby Endo.
Local support will be provided by Pongsit Kampee, Boy Thai, Greasy Cafe, Kidnappers and Dan Buri.
The added artists come in addition to the previously announced artists The Faint, Howie B, Submotion Orchestra, Dapayk Solo, Desktop Error, Polycat and Mahajamreon.
The Lucent Dossier Experience will also be sprinkling their magic on the event, bringing their hypnotic interactive theatre troupe spectacular all the way from Los Angeles.
To create a feast for all the senses, Wonderfruit have contracted Joel Dean Stokdill, the visual and conceptual artist behind last year’s main stage, to transform it once again. Los Angeles based Vita Modus, who have collaborated with Coachella and Portugal’s Boom festival will be designing the Solar Stage and contemorary Thai fashion house Issue will team up with Bang Bang to embelish the Soi Stage.
The Theatre of Feasts will again be serving up sumptuous fare to attendees, serving cuisine from some of Thailand’s finest culinary establishments. Headed by Chef Gaggan in the Theatre of Feasts, Hong Bao, Bad Motel, Fillets, Brocolli Revolution, Maison Jean Phillipe and Moo Ping Hea Owen will all be represented with another 20 traditional Thai street food outlets set to join the list.
There’s something for younger atendees too with free running workshops from Team Farang, a kids disco, magic and puppet show from Chao Khun Thong, and, most importantly for mums and dads looking to shirk their parental duties for a few hours, a professional nanny service on hand.
