It’s a great time to be a music fan in Manila right now. All the hottest indie bands played in the recently concluded Wanderland Music & Arts Festival. Acts like The Drums, The Royal Concept, The Paper Kites and the Last Dinosaurs wowed the crowd. Local up-and-comers were also given ample time to shine.

Wanderland is not your ordinary music festival. Apart from the unbelievable line-up of both local and foreign acts, it featured plenty of attractions like the Globe Wonderzone where festivalgoers can play parlor games simply by signing up to GoSURF!

There was an art zone where artists transformed a blank canvas into stunning pieces of art right in front of everyone’s eyes.

Everyone who was there certainly had a blast. We sure can’t wait for what next year has in store! Hopefully it can match or even surpass the fun we had this year. The Globe Circuit Grounds was the perfect venue, too!
