Let’s teleport ourselves to Wanderland…
Wanderland Music Festival is held at Globe Circuit Events Ground, Makati.
Parking is free but carpooling is strongly recommended. We suggest you park early because the space tends to fill up real quick during the late hours.
RFID bracelets are worn at all times. Be sure to tap-up at least P300 pesos good for one meal and a drink.
Tip: There is no re-entry into the Wanderland Festival grounds.
Meet the fun and friendly community of Wanderland, where people come in as strangers and leave as friends.
Wanderland’s most iconic attraction is the open space in front of the stage where you can just chill out on the grass and listen to good music.
Tip: Bring a picnic blanket.
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.
A meal would cost around P250.
Dessert and drinks around P150-P50.
With their biggest crowd yet, the Wanderland organizers didn’t anticipate the long cues for the food and drink stalls.
But on the other hand, there were no lines for the portalets available all over the venue.
Wifi, charging stations and rest areas are also spread out in the events grounds…
Besides experiencing the music everyone was kept entertained.
Staying true to their space theme are live art from the popular local artist.
Be sure to go early to see the them paint live.
Are you ready for lift off? Bounce your way to the stars with the Sky High Trampoline… (P150)
Or roll in the Giant Zorbit Ball.
Get creative by making your own flag and laying your mark on Wanderland Planet. (P100)
Or enjoy the ukulele playing sessions, buying fresh flowers, sending postcards from space or face painting.
And who can forget the amazing line-up for this year!
Local act Oh, Flamingo kicked off the event with its energetic tune.
Everyone screamed when Naked and Famous played and the crowds just kept getting bigger when headliners Death Cab for Cutie and Bon Iver performed on stage.
Overall, We had a wonderful time again in Wanderland. Great job on this year’s lineup. The music, the crowd and most of all the community was awesome. The whole vibe was very chill and relaxing, but the highlight of the event was that everyone was on their best behavior.
Congratulations Karpos Media for a successful event, just a tip to have more food and drink stalls for next year’s event.
Live an Awesome Life,
Abi, Boom and Sean of Our Awesome Planet Team
