The long wait is finally over for us, Wanderbuddies! After weeks of speculation, we finally have the names of the artists who are completing Wanderland Music & Arts Festival 2017 lineup.
If by any chance, you’re just finding out about Wanderland now, allow us to fill you with the deets. Wanderland Music & Arts Festival is, as the name suggests, is an event dedicated for music and the arts. Since the conception in 2013, it’s never failed to bring us good music, amazing performers and unique themes every year.

The festival’s return on March 4, 2017 at Filinvest City Event Grounds Alabang is something to anticipate for avid concert and music festival goers, with yet another heavy lineup and a Wander Jungle theme. Better get your adventurer outfit ready because it’s going to be one wild event.
A few weeks ago, we were delighted with the announcement of 11 from the 16 acts recruited for the festival. These consist of international and Filipino artists including the crowd’s favourite, Up Dharma Down.
Many were also surprised to find out that Gab & John of local rock band Urbandub will be performing in March, since it’s been almost two years since they announced their disbandment. We’re not complaining, though.

And finally, after weeks of teasing us with the five remaining acts, our wishes were finally granted by festival fairies. On the night of December 17, Wanderland, along with their partner, Globe Telecom, hosted a party to reveal these much-awaited artists. So without further ado, ladies and gentlemen, completing the Wanderland 2017 lineup are…
Filipino indie rockers Fools & Foes.
Malaysian singer-songwriter Yuna.
Canadian electronic duo Purity Ring.
Grammy-nomiated indie pop duo The Ting Tings.
And, oh my golly, Australian rock band The Temper Trap!
All thanks to Globe’s Instagram Stories, we were able to have a glimpse of the reveal party even though we were not physically there. But really though, can we just say that Wanderland definitely put us in a Sweet Disposition?
