Wonderfruit promotes social awareness


If, like us, you are forever checking every-flipping-website-possible for cheap flights, then you need to add Thailand in December to your search because Wonderfruit, the country’s first socially and eco-conscious music and arts festival is taking place again.

They’ve just announced their second-year festival to be held in an unbelievably gorgeous setting just 150km southeast of Bangkok, set among The Fields at Siam Country in picturesque Pattaya in Chonburi province. It’s happening over the holiday season from Dec 17-20, 2015. What a way to kick off your festivities!

The first phase of the lineup has just been announced and includes Jon Hopkins x Chris Levine present the iy_project, The Submotion Orchestra, Howie B, Dapayk Solo, Desktop Error, Mahajamreon and Polycat plus over 30 more acts to come.

unnamedThe festival attracts attendees from all over the globe with its four stages of music, visionary arts, culinary farm to feasts, health and wellness experiences, engaging talks and workshops, natural adventures and more. With a vision of cultivating creativity and inspiring personal responsibility, the festival is a pioneer in Asia and beyond with its sustainable practices and forward-thinking offerings.

Wonderfruit promotes personal responsibility and social awareness through its ‘clean marketing’ initiatives, with the aim of inspiring attendees to enjoy living in ways that improve their environments, bodies and spirits. This year, Wonderfruit launched an innovative, guerilla campaign using Reverse Graffiti. By power cleaning positive messages into previously dirty or vandalized spaces around Bangkok without producing additional waste, they challenged Thai residents to consider their own environmental impact. This is in line with the festival’s ethos of celebrating curiosity, cultivating creativity, and promoting the adventure of sustainable actions.

Sound good? Course it does. For more information and for tickets, head to the official website. And have a peep below at what went down last year.
