Wonderfruit is produced by Thai-based SCRATCH FIRST, which seeks to provide a platform for creative cultures to come together and to be a catalyst for positive change. SCRATCH FIRST is a global pioneer in experiential movements, responsible for Asia’s first entry into the transformational lifestyle festival arena. It leads the way with stunningly built environments, highly curated festival offerings, and socially conscious and eco-friendly policies.
Wondering what to expect when you’re in the field, reveling in the music, the color and the chaos? Here’s a heads up on the types of folks you can bank on seeing:
The guy with the GoPro on a selfie stick, enthusiastically documenting everything for his InstaBlog.
Someone dressed in a unicorn jumpsuit; her horn keeps getting in the way when she tries to drink out of a fresh coconut.
Vegan mom kicking back, sipping a kale juice while the kids get messy foraging on the farm.
The couple who just met: the magic of Wonderfruit may be having its effect, so if the tent’s a-rockin…The lone raverlosing his mind over the music in The Quarry; he’s lost all his friends too but he doesn’t care. Don’t bother looking for this guy in the daytime.
The family from abroad escaping the cold winter weather; if you see them, remind them to wear sunscreen.
The yogi; you’ll see her barefoot, rocking the drum circle in the Goddess Camp or saluting the sunrise at Solar Stage, but you’ll hear her first thanks to her jangly jewelry… which she made by hand in the Wonder Salon.
The foodiesraving over the delectable cuisine served in the Theatre of Feasts while they guzzle down a cheeseburger, Singha in hand.
The day-trippersjust popping in for Sunday. They’ll be decidedly cleaner than the rest of us but perhaps a little less enchanted.
No matter who you are, or where you come from, you will certainly find that special “something” that makes you a Wonderer. Free your mind and soul and get ready for an unforgettable celebration of cross-cultural art, music, and life.
