In the news: Why Asia’s Answer To Coachella Is Much Better Than The Original
In The Independent on 12 April 2019, Paul Kay explained what makes Wonderfruit stand out from the crowd:    It’s 5am on a Sunday morning in mid-December, but the bar is heaving like it’s five minutes to midnight on New Year’s Eve. To my left, a man in a glittering multicoloured kaftan and a ludicrously ornate sequinned sergeant’s hat is knocking back shots of Mekhong spirit with a petite girl dressed in a Day-Glo cheongsam, fluorescent face paint and flashing antennae. To my right, a shoeless red-faced man in a giraffe costume is alternately sipping on a ruby-hued concoction and nibbling on a date skewered by a pencil-sized piece of bamboo.   “You should have a negroni,” says the giraffe in a thick Russian accent that I can just about hear over the pounding sound system. “They’re very good.” I nod in appreciation and order up my drink before ferrying it as carefully as I can through the writhing mass of merrymakers and out into the cool night air.   With the first hints of light starting to infiltrate the inky sky, I make my way towards the throbbing glow of the geometric pyramid on the hill, dodging a neon-lit angel on a unicorn-shaped bike and a quartet of Indian-headdress-sporting revellers in a giant shark on wheels along the way. So ends another eventful day at Thailand’s Wonderfruit, the festival that’s threatening to give hedonism in Asia a good name.   Frequently compared to US mega festivals Coachella and Burning Man, Wonderfruit has been held annually, on a verdant stretch of land two hours’ drive south of Bangkok, since 2014. Running continuously for four days, it serves up a round-the-clock line-up of top-notch DJs (mass market EDM doesn’t get a look in, thankfully) and offbeat musical mavericks (from Mongolian throat singing to drum and bass legend Goldie backed by an eight-piece orchestra) at a variety of weird and wonderful stages.   But the music is only half the story. The festival also features an extensive programme of TED-style talks by everyone from blockchain boffins to eco warriors, workshops that run the gamut from batik scarf design to probiotic cookery, and activities as diverse as capoeira, crystal bowl meditation and orgasmic yoga. This is all underpinned by a wholehearted commitment to sustainability, with virtually every structure made from recycled, reclaimed or reusable materials – in 2017, this included a stage made out of parcels of rice that were given away and eaten after the festival – while the event’s filtered drinking water is drawn from an on-site lake and single-use plastics are outlawed. Call it conscientious hedonism. This is my second year as a “Wonderer”, but any sense of deja vu is quickly dispelled by the festival’s move to a sprawling new setting about a mile from its original location. The site has a cornucopia of natural features that the organisers have used to create quirky stages, art installations and chill-out zones in the jungle, in secluded valleys and even on a lake. Indeed, there are so many nooks and crannies to explore that I find myself making new discoveries all the way through to the last night, when a strange green glow emanating from a small patch of forest leads me to a clearing where people are belting out karaoke (”Dancing Queen” and “I Want It That Way”) while perched in the branches of a brightly illuminated tree. Despite its growth, the festival remains relatively small (around 17,000 people attended the most recent edition), meaning that it’s easy to get involved in anything that takes your fancy – which I gladly do by having my molecules stirred by sound waves at a gong-bath session before stretching out the previous night’s dancefloor exertions with some deep-house yoga.   There’s also a wide array of food and drink options – from lavish feasts curated by noted chefs to all the grab-and-go comfort foods you could ever want – as well as a family area, a massage zone and an array of aquatic activities. Accommodation options range from bring-your-own tents to the lavish Camp Kerala, which has its own spa, restaurant and 24-hour butler service. But wherever you lay your hat, it’s music that drives the festival, and I spend most of my time wandering from stage to stage discovering new favourites every step of the way.   My standout moments are seeing Fleetmac Wood – a US duo who reimagine Fleetwood Mac songs for the chemical generation – almost blowing the roof off of a giant bamboo hut with a stage backdropped by illuminated jungle, and Meute, an 11-piece German marching band playing techno classics as the sun sets. I also have a borderline religious experience at the audiophile heaven that is the mighty Polygon stage, which has bone-shaking 3D virtual-reality sound, and dance the night away with 2,000 others at the forest-set Quarry, before watching the sun come up over the festival’s Burning Man-inspired pyramidical centrepiece, the Solar Stage.   Ultimately, the greatest thing about Wonderfruit is the amazing array of choices that present themselves at any given moment during the festival’s non-stop 92-hour runtime, whether you want to party, explore, chill or seek enlightenment. But whatever you do, make sure your try the negronis. That giraffe was right.   Find Paul Kay's original article (including a fun video of all the action) here.

Our ethos: what we believe and how we live it
“We encourage, develop and innovate creative solutions for sustainable living and bring together a global community to celebrate them. We use our platform to catalyze creativity and make a meaningful positive impact.” That’s our mission statement, folks.  What we’re saying is that we want to show that living sustainably can be easy, fun... even decadent, to explore what that means, and bring people together from all over the world to explore and enjoy the ways it can be possible. At Wonderfruit, you’ll find yourself climbing on or dancing beneath stages and structures that are not only innovative and eye-catching, but built from sustainable materials or with cutting-edge design techniques that eliminate the need for nuts and bolts. We encourage indulgence and champion comfort, and we do it responsibly. We’ve had world class chefs create sumptuous feasts using some ingredients from our onsite farm; we insist all our food vendors serve their delicious goodies on biodegradable plates, we filter your drinking water from our lake and we reward you for reusing your cups.   We offset our carbon in a number of different ways and we are always investigating ways we can go further and be carbon positive. We work with experts who are at the cutting edge of innovative solutions like these and we invite some of them to speak at Wonderfruit, so you can discover and explore these ideas too. In all these and many other ways, we use Wonderfruit as an opportunity to get people excited about sustainable living and feel inspired to make changes in the world.

In the news: Ab Rogers Designs A Series Of Sustainable Structures For Wonderfruit
In this article from December 2018, Philip Stevens of designboom breaks down the creations built by Ab Rogers and his team in The Fields. Note: in a nod to designboom's signature style, we've maintained their disdain for capital letters in this re-posted version of the article.    from december 13-16, 2018, the hills west of pattaya on the gulf of thailand hosted a carbon neutral four-day celebration of the arts. this year’s edition of ‘wonderfruit’, which designboom previewed in october, features a series of sustainable structures by ab rogers design. these interventions celebrate the region’s indigenous craft, using local materials and a family of red finishes to complement the area’s lush greenery.   ‘the masterplanning for the site has been evolved to hold dialog with its context — the landscape and its adjacencies,’ explains ab rogers design. ‘its forms have been derived from a collection of sensual radiating circles that connect the different activities in sympathy with to the fact that sound does not move in lines but circles and as a metaphor for sustainability, which underpins every element of the brief.’   the masterplan for wonderfruit 2018 comprises three primary aspects: the eco pavilion, the theatre of feasts, and the bath house. described as a temporary structure that can appear and disappear at will, the eco pavilion consists of 124 hand-made, hand-painted cotton umbrellas in shades of red, pink, and orange sheltering a man-made crater. the structure is capable of hosting a range of programs, from lectures and events, with the audience sheltered in the shade of the umbrellas. meanwhile, the theatre of feasts is a permanent structure designed around the ritual of eating. fully open to the elements, its roof is woven from palm leaves to keep diners cool. a hole in the center acts like a sundial, maintaining connection to the wider site and the shifting light of the day passing outside. inside, an uninterrupted circular table curls its way around the perimeter of the tent, allowing 275 people to dine together under the giant bamboo dome.   in the center of this ring of tables is a kitchen made from stained red bamboo, which establishes a performative relationship between the chefs, the diners, and structure that contains them. under foot a dusty orange pebble floor creates a tangible sense of arrival, of crossing a threshold into a warm, vibrant and intimate social space. this giant tent is concealed by re-used fabrics. nearby, the bath house has been conceived as an oasis of calm, with dedicated environments that support drinking, bathing, performing, relaxation, massage, and contemplation. made up of a connected network of pontoons and floating pavilions, inspired by thai fishing villages, it offers an opportunity for quiet reflection, taking visitors on a journey through the power of water via various nurturing bathing rituals. each structure one has been designed to filter light out or let in an optimal amount light, depending on the treatment it hosts. Check out the original article, including lots more gorgeous pictures of these amazing creations, here.

Wondrous Facts About Wonderfruit 2018
With so much to see and do at Wonderfruit, it's easy to miss the little details. Here are a few fun facts about our most recent adventure that might've escaped your notice.   THE FIRST-EVER HEMP STAGE 2018’s Living Stage is the first-ever stage to be constructed from hemp. Five tonnes of hemp branches were bundled up to create the minimalist monument in eco-design. Designer Adam Pollina experimented with the material for some time before building our main stage, which stood at nearly 15-meters tall and twice that in width. Headliners who graced the boards included Goldie & The Ensemble, Nightmares on Wax (Live), Huun Huur Tu and Carmen Rizzo and Job2Do.   THE STRATEGIC POSITIONING OF THE SOLAR STAGE  The Solar Stage returned to The Fields for its fourth year, but in a new form. Not only was it reassembled, but with a strategic design and positioning that placed it directly in the path of both sunrise and sunset. Unforgettable moments at Solar Stage included sunset with MEUTE on Saturday and sunrise with Craig Richards and friends on Monday.   SUSTAINABLE STRENGTH ACROSS THE FIELDS Sustainability is the foundation upon which Wonderfruit is built and our ethos is demonstrated throughout The Fields. The site build used more than 50,000 bamboo poles in various sizes last year and even things like plates, cups, and cutlery are made from renewable and biodegradable materials like cassava and sugarcane.

Guest Post | Serious fun: Wonderfruit launches ‘out of the box’ business networking event
From Eco-Business – our official media partner – writer Hannah Koh reviews our inaugural Ethos event. She writes:     Music, hedonism and sustainability are regular fare at Wonderfruit, the annual music and lifestyle fest that takes place in Pattaya, Thailand. But organisers want to show they take fun seriously too, with the launch of invite-only business networking event Ethos at the fifth edition of the festival.   The half-day programme took place on 13 December, on a grassy terraced knoll where the event’s 50 attendees sat in the shade of red cotton umbrellas hand-made by local artisans, dubbed the Eco-Pavilion.   Miniwiz founder and chief executive officer Arthur Huang addresses the audience.  It featured presentations, a brainstorming session, a tour of the expansive festival grounds, and lunch by renowned chefs “Bo” Duangporn Songvisava and Dylan Jones from Michelin-starred restaurant Bo.lan and Netflix’s Chef’s Table fame.   Speaking to Eco-Business, Ethos organiser Sara Soulier said the aim was to make Wonderfruit a rallying point for responsible business and organisations to come together to find solutions and drive positive environmental change in the face of the “gloom and doom cast in the state of the environment and world today”.   Wonderfruit founder Pete Phornprapha elaborated that Ethos is how Wonderfruit wants to engage with its partners. “We believe in the collective power to create change and Ethos’ intention is to engage more closely with our stakeholders to create bold, creative and impactful ideas to come to life.”   The turn-out included representatives from festival sponsors including alcoholic beverage maker Singha, as well as corporates, artists, and representatives from non-governmental organisations and media, many of whom were attending Wonderfruit for the first time.   While a business networking event and a festival seem like an unlikely match, Wonderfruit is the “one of the most natural places” to convene and discuss sustainability, said Soulier, who is the project lead for Plastic Pollution Coalition, a partner to Wonderfruit.   A sustainable lunch being prepared by Bo.lan chef Dylan Jones (centre).     Attendees at Ethos 2018 sit down for a brainstorming session.   “If we want people to think outside of the box [to solve the world’s sustainability problems], we actually need to get them outside of the box,” she said. “People want to be inspired and experience what is possible. Not only does Wonderfruit provide a physical space for this exploration, it also connects business leaders to a community of innovators and change-makers who are at the forefront of sustainable development.”   Attendees heard from Arthur Huang, a National Geographic Explorer and founder and chief executive officer of Miniwiz, a Taiwanese company that has made headlines for circular economy design and solutions, about his vision for recycling. The presentation by David Galipeau, chief impact officer, Asia Pacific, United Nations Development Program’s SDG Impact Finance, talked about the intersection of global megatrends and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the impact for Thailand and Asia.   Soulier said that Ethos marked the start of Wonderfruit’s engagement with the business community, and the team is in discussions to hold two more events in the year ahead. This includes workshops on the SDGs or strategic sessions to develop sustainable solutions that can be showcased at Ethos in 2019.   “This was only the launch of Ethos as an event at the festival, but we do not see it as a one-off event only linked to festival dates,” she added. “Rather, we seek to create a continuum of work and convening as an evolution of growth that extends beyond the annual festival model.”   The Eco-Pavilion at Wonderfruit 2018, featuring striking red and pink umbrellas made by local artisans.   Check out the original article here on Eco-Business.

Urban beats and grilled meats saw Mercedes me @ SOT win at Wonderfruit 2018
Wonderfruit was without a doubt an entirely novel experience this year - new land, new ideas, and new faces. But what really took even us at Wonderfruit HQ by surprise was Mercedes me @ SOT, which saw a marriage between food and music executed flawlessly in a brand-new space that redefined the role of camps at Wonderfruit. While the camp has been a regular in The Fields for several years now, 2019 saw it reach new heights as far as style, sound, programming and range.     With Peppina, Soul Food Mahankorn, La Monita, Billy’s Smokehouse and Surface all taking up residence at the camp, it became the de facto hub for congregating chefs and Wonderers alike who rubbed shoulders, shared drinks, and were even spotted having a boogie on the dance floor together. Pizzas were served alongside Aperol spritzes, the tacos were Field favorites and the hearty breakfast was not to be missed by anyone still onsite. An under-the-radar friday night feast saw all the chefs come together and roast a pig, with each vendor preparing a part of the pork their own way leaving Mercedes me @ SOT with a reputation being the go-to destination for the best eats in The Fields.     Now cue the music, which all went off in perfect syncopated harmony as an army of DJs and musicians that performed at Mercedes me @ SOT defied expectations and genres to make the camp standout from its electronic music driven counterparts. Veteran DJs C2C stole the show with their legendary performance while premier Canadian DJ Skratch Bastid gave the audience a taste of what Red Bull 3Style is all about. While the vibe was overall hip-hop, all the camp’s artists were impactful in making Mercedes me @ SOT a shining example of diversity in The Fields and just how well the music experience works outside of the clubs.     The magic that unfolded in this small slice of The Fields would not have been possible without Mercedes-Benz, whose collaboration with Wonderfruit brought to life the Mercedes me @ SOT to concept. Their belief in our idea and commitment to seeing it be executed helped make this a top venue this year. We’re now left armed and loaded with ideas and inspiration for 2019 and we can’t wait to see you there.
