Wonderfruit Festival 2015: Why You Should Go to Thailand's Hippest New Festival? @wonderfruitfest

News-Get-involved

Wonderfruit, an international Music & Arts Festival set in Thailand's backpacker heartland Siam Country Pattaya. For 4-days, the festival grounds are transformed into a hippiefied new world with a focus on advocating creative cultures, eco-friendliness, and sustainable living. You could say, it has the same change-making concept as to Philippine's very own Malasimbo.

With its reputation of being sin city, you'd be surprised that Pattaya is far from that, with it's lush hills, creeks and well-manicured lawns reminding you of Coachella. Festival goers are to expect a fun-packed schedule with tons of exciting music line-up, yummy feasts, fitness classes, art workshops and nature activities stored for the whole family.

Here's what to expect during Wonderfruit's 4-days of festivities on December 17-20...
