The festival will feature several stages that offer different sonic experiences for festival-goers

Thailand’s Wonderfruit Festival has revealed its eclectic first phase lineup, featuring Japanese producer Soichi Terada, American EDM duo Telefon Tel Aviv, local rockers H3F and more.

The festival is set to be held at The Fields at Siam Country Club in Pattaya from December 15 to 18 and will feature several stages that offer different sonic experiences for festival-goers. The Creature Stage will feature a range of acts curated by London-based experimental electronic music label Erased Tapes, with Hatis Noit, Masayoshi Fujita, Penguin Cafe, Anne Müller, H3F, Autta and art-rock band Snapped Ankles set to perform.

The Neramit stage will feature a green tea pouring ceremony by MSCTY Studio x Yumiko Morioka before performing Morioka’s recently re-released 1987 album, Resonance, before hosting a showcase from Thai label More Rice Records featuring Chalo, Sarayu, Elaheh, and DOTT.

11-piece experimental Japanese outfit Ajate, San Francisco House veteran Garth, TOM oF ENGLAND and Telefon Tel Aviv will command the festival’s Solar Stage, while Indonesia’s Batavia Collective have also been announced for the festival alongside other acts like Däydang, Pam Anantr, Slowlygreen and Supersonic.

Wonderfruit will also be holding several other activities on the festival grounds in line with the festival’s themes of art, music, architecture, food, and human rituals. A unique ‘Ancestral Forest’ designed with biodiversity builders SUGi, the world’s leading network of Miyawaki Forest Makers, promises to be a highlight of the experience, alongside a new community-based art project called Wonder OK and Sonic Elements with MSCTY Studio, a collaborative project that the organisers say is “designed to enhance the relationship with the natural world through sound and space”.

Additional activities and performers will be announced at a future date.

Tickets purchased from the 2020 festival, which was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, will remain valid and can be used to enter either the 2022, 2023 or 2024 events. Festival organisers have also announced that several changes will be made to this year’s ticketing process, including the implementation of a cap on ticket sales.

Phase 1 tickets will only be up for grabs for 72 hours on July 18 at 7PM local time until July 21, with its pricing increasing by THB500 every 24 hours. Tickets will start at THB6,000 and can go up to THB7,000. The second 72-hour window has yet to receive a confirmed date but is “coming later in July”.
