Move over Coachella, here comes Wanderland 2015! Manila’s own Hippie Music and Arts Festival with chill vibes, friendly crowd, amazing music (both local and international artists), live art and imaginative attractions.
Wanderland 2015 is headlined by Kid Cudi, RAC, Augustana, Youngblood Hawke, The Jungle Giants, Lewis Watson, Hale, SINYMA, Kate Torralba, Wanderband: The Strange Creatures, and Austin.
This year we wanted to take our Wanderland experience further and decided to experience Wanderland in the eyes of the campers themselves. And here's what we did...
Here's what the wanderers have to say!:
Welcome to Wanderland…
Festivals tend to be expensive, you’ll need to purchase a minimum of P300 pesos, just enough for a game, a drink and some grub, to be able to experience a little of bit of wanderland's offerings besides music.
Meet our fellow campers! They’re fun, easy going and a friendly crowd who loves having their pictures taken.
We love the wide open space, take the opportunity and to just chill out on the grass. Bring a picnic blanket, and if you're lucky you can grab one of those bean bags scattered all over the grounds.
We can’t help but notice their curious fashion sense. Most of the crowd were in floral, lace, sandos and shorts but some kids took the opportunity to show their adventurous side like these two!
We roamed around the concert grounds and got to watch our new friends play and have fun, also there were a lot of camping attractions to choose from like…
playing silly ducky with a fishing pole, or try to knock over a pile of cans...
even have a fun friendly match,
Or get creative and design a twig.
And earn badges and prizes after finishing them.
You can even just roam around the ground and take picture or play with the installations.
They conveniently have a charging station playfully dressed up as a campfire, where you can plug your phones, sit down, relax and even play the guitar while waiting.
If you're hungry you can head over to the Food station, where they have a wide selection of grubs to satisfy your hungry tummy.
Art appreciation anyone?
Get to see live art exhibitions from local artists June Digan, Kris Abrigo, and Tokwa Peñaflorida.
And, of course, who could forget the music? Cheers to Kid Cudi for an awesome show!

Overall, we liked Wanderland 2015, especially the awesome friendly Wanderland community. The music was very chill and relaxing, truly the highlight of the event and everyone was at their best behaviour. Parents should be proud! We had so much wanderful moments to remember… Congratulations Wanderland 2015!
P.S. Parking is free but carpooling is recommended. Kids are allowed but I don’t think they will get to appreciate the whole Wanderland experience like we did.
