Following their announcement in September, in which the festival revealed LANY and Woodlock were added to the roster, Wanderland 2017 has revealed another two big international recruits: soulful British electronic duo HONNE and Texan post-rock group Explosions in the Sky.
Such. Great. Vibes.
Also added to the roster are homegrown musical three-piece Tom’s Story and indie folk soloist Reese Lansangan. The two will be joining local talents already confirmed like Urbandub, shoegazing act Up Dharma Down, and “Wanderbands” Lola Amour, Banna Harbera, and Mickey Sulit Music.
According to the festival, these are only 11 out of 16 lineup performers in store to rock the Wander Jungle next year. Be sure to keep an eye out for the other five in the coming weeks.
(Though, we must say, they had us at HONNE and Explosions in the Sky).
This will mark Explosions in the Sky’s return to Asia after their appearance at Fuji Rock Festival this summer. Their 2017 trek in the region will once again kick off in Japan, where they’ll stop by Osaka and Tokyo on February 26 and March 1 respectively.
Wanderland tickets, priced at PHP5,500, are now on sale through SM Tickets. VIP passes and group bundles are also available. See the prices and perks below.
The upcoming edition of Wanderland is happening at Filinvest City Event Grounds Alabang on March 4, 2017, a move from the Globe Circuit Event Grounds of its predecessor. You can read our guide to the Filipono festival here.
