Take Off to Wanderland
Head on to an amazing journey to the stars. This March 5, 2016, Wanderland Music & Arts Festival will take you to an out-of-this-world adventure at the Globe Circuit Makati open grounds. Now on its fourth year, be prepared to witness the gathering of amazing Wander troopers for a day filled with arts, music, and games.
This music and arts festival has become an annual tradition of good music and good people. It showcases international and homegrown indie bands on the same stage, treating the fans to an all-day music greatness.
Check out some of the bands lined up to rock out your weekend:
Death Cab for Cutie
The Naked and Famous
Hailing from Auckland, New Zealand, The Naked and Famous started their band back in 2007 when Thom Power and Alisa Xayalith worked on an EP with engineer and fellow MAINZ music college student, Aaron Short. Ever since their formation, this indie electronic band has released two studio albums Passive Me, Aggressive You (2010) and In Rolling Waves (2013). If you're wondering how they got their unique name, it's from the English artist Tricky's song Tricky Kid. He quotes the line ``everybody wants to be naked and famous``, from The Presidents of the United States of America's song ``Naked and Famous".
Here are the other bands to watch out for in Wanderland:
Jensen and the Flips
Now that you had a glimpse of the performing bands, it's time to prepare a list of things to bring for this weekend. Here's a few must-haves to get the best out of your Wanderland experience:
1. Comfortable Clothes and Footwear
It's a whole day event filled with exciting games and performances. Be sure to wear your most comfortable clothes and footwear so you can make the most out of the experience. Your getup might get wet or dirty in some of the activities, so bring extra clothes as well.
2. Mat or Blanket
All the booth hopping, singing, and dancing can tire you out, so a mat or blanket to sit on can come in handy. Share a mat with your barkada and enjoy the music while lying down or chilling out on the concert grounds.
Since the music festival will be held in the open grounds of Circuit Makati, you can expect the venue to be hot and sunny. Dab on sunblock before heading to camp and while you're there, try to get some cover from time to time.
4. Hat, Poncho, or Umbrella
Nothing beats a person who's always prepared! Bring a hat, poncho, or umbrella (preferably the handy foldable one) to keep you safe under the blazing heat (and dry in case it rains.)
Your Wanderland experience will never be complete without taking selfies and groufies with friends. To capture this memorable event, don't forget to bring your point and shoot camera (DSLR are not allowed) or use your mobile phone's camera instead.Now that you're all set for this out-of-this-world music festival, get yourself acquainted to the bands by listening to their playlists in Spotify.
