Shut up and let us go. We’re totally freaking out over the Wanderland Music and Arts Festival 2017 lineup.
Karpos Multimedia is back to make our wildest dreams come true by bringing The Ting Tings and The Temper Trap as the headliners for next summer’s biggest music festival. We first heard The Temper Trap live at the Wanderland stage back in 2013 and next year—on Wanderland’s 5th anniversary—they’re coming back with new hits from their latest album “Thick as Thieves”. The co-headliner set of English indie pop duo The Ting Tings in Wanderland will be their debut performance in Manila.
On March 4, the two big acts will also be joined by our other faves Yuna, Purity Ring and Fools and Foes at the Filinvest City Events Grounds in Alabang. The jungle fever is strong as these five acts complete the lineup for the much-awaited festival.
In case you’ve been hiding under a rock, Explosions in the Sky, LANY, Woodlock, and electronic duo HONNE are also getting ready to set the Wanderland stage on fire. OPM faves Up Dharma Down, and Gab and John of Urbandub are joining the roster together with Young STAR Fresh Produce Tom’s Story and singer-songwriter Reese Lansangan. Newbies Lola Amour, Banna Harbera, and Mickey Sulit are also in on the party. These bands fought their way through the Wanderland Jungle Battle to land a spot on the festival lineup.
For four years now, Wanderland Music and Arts Festival has been on everyone’s summer bucket list. Can you believe it’s already been 9 months since we finally got to bawl our eyes out to a live Bon Iver set? Kid Cudi surprised us a year ago, but it was in 2014 when we finally got to check “join a moshpit” off our bucket lists—all thanks to The Royal Concept’s epic set.
Next year, a jungle adventure awaits as Wanderland steps into new territory (literally) with a bigger venue down south and an even bigger musical lineup to match. Paws up and get ready to put your inner concert animal on the loose. It’s going to be wild.
