At Wonderfruit, our ethos is to encourage, develop and innovate creative solutions for sustainable living and bring together a global community to celebrate them.

Reimagining Wonderfruit as a pop-up city

 

Let's re-think the way a society functions, from its waste management, water, transportation and logistics to energy, food, human interactions to social experiments. By designing a city with these elements in mind, we can re-engineer traditional practices to create a world we want to see.

Live. Love. Wonder.

SUSTAINABLE CREATIVE EXPERIENCES

Over the past five years, we’ve built a celebration of sustainability on six pillars: Art & Architecture, Farm to Feasts, Music, Family, Talks & Workshops and Wellness. This year, we continue to curate experiences that bring our global community together.

Sustainability at Wonderfruit 2019—How Did We Do?
It’s the basis of everything we do at Wonderfruit. The reason Wonderfruit appeared into existence all those years ago. And a great way to challenge creative characters to make a positive impact on the world.   it’s sustainability.     Each year, we set ourselves some pretty serious sustainability goals. We encourage ourselves and our community to think about the ways we use resources, source materials, and handle waste. It’s not always glamorous, or as obvious as the more memorable parts of The Fields, but without it our beautiful pop-up city would be a wasteland.   For 2019, our main public goals were split into three types: carbon emissions, landfill, and food waste. We were aiming to remain carbon negative, meaning we absorb more carbon emissions than we produce; we strived to divert 100% of all waste from landfill, finding new ways to use our waste; we wanted to discourage food going to waste, by educating all Wonderers on the impact of food.   So, how did we do? Or, more accurately, how did you do?   Thanks to your voluntary carbon calculator donations, more than 1,000 Tons of CO2, generated by your travel to Wonderfruit, will be offset. Because of this, we will end up offsetting more than we generated for the second year in a row—meaning Wonderfruit has a net positive effect on the atmosphere. We’ll have the final emissions figures later in the year, after an independent audit by TGO.    Just by drinking, you saved 954kg of CO2 from entering the atmosphere. We partnered with EcoSpirits to reduce the number of glass bottles shipped, stored, and supplied in the fields. By refilling bottles to the bars, 1,908 fewer bottles were used.   You diverted 95.4% of all your waste from landfill. By composting all the food waste and packaging on-site, sending all the recyclables to be recycled, flattening the water boxes and transforming them into roof tiles, and turning everything else into resource-derived fuel for cement kilns, less than 5% of all the waste ended up being landfilled. It wasn’t 100%, but we’re pretty pleased with the result.   You used 200,000 fewer single-use cups. And you brought some beautiful alternatives for refill cups to replace the dreaded disposables. All it took was an all-out ban on single-use cups to keep them out of the bins. Easy.   48% of all your waste was recycled. The bulk of the remaining waste was food and packaging. If that doesn’t seem exciting or notable, you should know this: less than 20% of Thailand’s overall waste in the whole country makes it to the recycling plant. You did really well, here.   All liquid waste was stored, transported, and treated. Nothing went down the drain until it had been through a water treatment plant.    100% of all food waste was composted in The Fields, which not only reduced the amount of carbon required to transport the waste away, but also helps nourish our soil for a more bountiful harvest in 2020. Plates, bowls, chopsticks, napkins, and cutlery met the same organic fate.   We aren’t perfect, and there is a lot left to do—but for now, every Wonderer should feel as proud as we do about these achievements.   Go deep on all the data by clicking here.

See the Sounds of the City with Musicity x Bangkok
If you go down to Bangkok’s Old Town today, you’re sure of a big surprise.   But it won’t quite feel like a nursery rhyme.   The mesmerizing, transformative soundscapes created as part of Musicity x Bangkok (x Wonderfruit) have returned from their onstage outing to The Fields, and found their way back to the spaces for which they were composed.   Sound artists and producers from Erased Tapes were introduced to iconic Bangkok landmarks in December, joined by local Thai musicians, and tasked with creating original compositions based on sounds captured at each space. Over two weeks, locals and internationals alike reconstructed the sonic landscape of the city, then debuted their work to an adoring crowd of Wonderers live at Wonderfruit.   Hatis Noit (Japan, Erased Tapes), Daniel Brandt (Germany, Erased Tapes), Nannue Tipitier (Thailand, Independent), Rival Consoles (United Kingdom, Erased Tapes), Supergoods (Thailand, Tomato Love), Midori Hirano (Japan, Noble Label), and Douglas Dare (United Kingdom, Erased Tapes) each pounded the pavements of Bangkok’s historic precincts to bring the sense of the setting to the stage. And now, visitors to the capital can do the same.     How To Experience Musicity x Bangkok     Hail a tuk tuk, hop on a bike, or don your walking shoes for a tour of the old town with an extra dimension.   The only way to unlock the music is to visit the sites. Pack a pair of headphones and make your way to each of the spaces, open the Musicity website, and enjoy the way each artist heard the location.      Once you’ve visited each geotagged location, you can download the tracks or stream them online as often as you like. Trust us, it will be often.

Your Sunday Highlights
Are you still feeling it? We definitely are. The world never stops spinning for wonder, and you made that perfectly clear with your energy and presence in The Fields on Saturday. And how good was Acid Pauli over sunrise at Solar Stage?   It’s nearly the end of our sweet time together. Make the most of the days you have left at Wonderfruit by throwing yourself headlong into Sunday.   If you haven’t been to Wonderfruit yet this weekend, don’t forget to pre-register your ticket to save time at the gate. Also—where have you been? If you don’t have a ticket, just head to the Box Office when you get here and pick up a Sunday Pass.   What’s on   Start your day right with a trip to one (or more) of our delicious, diverse food vendors here at Wonderfruit. Each stall is its own temporary kitchen, popping up for the same amount of time as we all share here together. How about a breakfast burrito with a side of congee and an extra order of krapow with an açai bowl for good measure?   Well fed, it’s time to explore. If you have little wonders in tow, take them to Little Fields at Camp Wonder for a real, hands-on experience of life on the farm. Our Chicken Coop and workshop brings kids up close and personal with the source of one of Thailand’s culinary mainstays: the egg. You can join the feathers and fun at 10am, or at 3pm.   Stay in the neighbourhood for a very special, very Thai treat for the senses: Yam Khang Fire Therapy. The traditional Northern-style massage practise uses local herbs, ancient remedies, feet, and fire to rejuvenate and revitalize weary limbs and souls. You’ve never had a sizzle like this before. Try the 1pm session.   Catch Naj Frusciante’s surefire selections at Ziggurat with Singha, and set the tone for the day to come. As they say, start as you wish to continue. You can’t start much better than this. She’ll be serving up the smorgasbord of songs from 2pm.   If these suggestions are already spinning you into a sense of panic, get busy doing nothing. House of Doing Nothing has a hammock with your name on it, all you need to do is show up ready to do absolutely nothing.   On the way, look out for the sounds and sights of The Bangkok Voices’ Roaming Chorus—they’ll be popping up where you least expect with renditions of some of your favorites, and new classics.   We have all seen the state of our oceans, national parks, and otherwise-untouched spaces at the hands of plastic pollution. Join three leading voices from across the spectrum of plastic production, recycling, clean-up, and reduction at Eco Pavilion for The Great Plastic Debate Panel. The discussion is chaired by Stephanie Dickson (from Green Is The New Black), and they’ll get underway at 5:20pm.   Watch the sun slip from the sky in Polygon Live, as Be Svendsen & Viken Arman (Live) combine their astute production and selection prowess for a special collaborative set from 6:30pm. These are unmissable elements of the Wonderfruit calendar, set an alarm if you need to.   Experience the dynamic, specialized talent of Chris The Pianist at Creature Stage, filling Living Village with his masterful, highly contrasted, and sharply characterized piano. Make your way to the bright and colorful Creature Stage from 6:30pm and settle in for a sundowner with extra keys.   Discover the merge of grime and jazz when London’s own Alfa Mist steps up for a live performance at Theatre Stage, against the backdrop of our beautiful landscape. Take a seat in our natural amphitheatre and wait for 7pm, when he takes to the stage.   Get acquainted with Brooklyn’s Dillon Cooper at SOT at 9pm. The multi-faceted entertainer brings his high-energy beats and lyrical honesty to the big block party in The Fields. If you haven't managed to visit SOT yet—one, why not? and two, you're in for a treat. This urban playground in The Fields is home to the best of food, drinks, sounds, and experiences from the downtown. You'll find Rad Meats hot dogs, Peppina pizzas, Haoma vegan treats, Stoli's pop-up vodka bar, and Monkey Shoulder with Pussyfoot Saloon.   Hear a set from the unbeatable, incomparable Four Tet at Solar Stage from 10:30pm. We would love to say more about this performance, but where would we even begin? Go and see what we mean for yourself.   When the sun has shown its glistening face once again, be sure to spend the magic hour wisely—by sticking around for a blistering back-to-back set from Camion Bazar and La Mamie's. They’ll keep Wonderfruit going long into the day.   As with every day of wonder here in The Fields, there’s so much more to be seen and experienced than what we can put on a page. Download the Wonderfruit App for the latest updates, and the full lineup.

The Japanese rope bondage is an expression of trust, intimacy, and dominance between rigger and ‘bunny’. The ropes swing at 21:45.   Big boss of Ed Banger Records Busy P, AKA Pedro Winter, joins his labelmates at Forbidden Fruit as part of the Ed Banger Records Takeover tonight. There’ll be a medley of all the Ed Banger artists at 04:00, in case you missed any throughout the earlier sets.    Daniel Merlot’s House of the Unholy Ritual will finally be revealed at Neramit at the strike of midnight. Emiko Shibamura, Japan’s favorite 65-year-old rapper, will perform alongside dancers, performers, and who knows what else...   Stretch your night out until it’s not night anymore with a Solar Stage sunrise set by the one and only Acid Pauli.

Your Friday Highlights
The end of the week has finally arrived, and we are ready to rush things up a notch (or twelve). Thanks to a crowd of eager Wonderers ready to explore all Thursday long, The Fields are now all warmed up and ready to embrace you all on Friday.   Before you get to Wonderfruit, don’t forget to pre-register your ticket to save time at the gate. If you don’t yet have a ticket, just head to the Box Office when you get here for a Full Pass, Weekend Pass, or Sunday Pass.   Once you’re back inside The Fields, you’ll be looking for some spiritual and physical guidance through the world of wonder that awaits. We’ve got some ideas for your Friday:   If you were here yesterday—how are you feeling? Start Friday right, go straight to the vitamin genies at IV LYFE and replenish what was depleted from the inside out.   Make your leisurely way to the shady, breezy Neramit for the Neramit Brunch Club with Hillpop and Casa Lapin. Sparkling cold brew coffee, cocktails, and day-long comfort food are just what your mid-afternoon needs.   Thailand Smart Farmers have a functioning vegetable patch in The Fields, surrounded by Thai food vendors drawing their deliciousness straight from the land. It’s worth a visit for street-style eats and that country air we kinda like.   You’ve had your fill, so let’s explore.   What’s on   Visit Camp Edible for a fermentation workshop with new friends. Blackitch Artisan Kitchen’s chef Black leads a hands-on session for all things fizzy, tangy, and probiotic from 13:00.   Be inspired by a Scratch Talk from Divyanshu Ganatra—the Blind Adventurer—at Eco Pavilion at 16:00.   Feel connected to the weekend with an opening ceremony starring rhythms from Tiger Drum Thailand, fire displays by Samui Circus Studio, and a puppet show with Bigger Monsters, at sunset in the iconic surrounds of Solar Stage.   Release your inner anger at the cellular level with Rajen Palsingh’s Relieving Inner Anger session at Wonderness.

It’s bright, it’s beautiful, and it’s the perfect backdrop for the jazz drumming and sweet melodies. Find a spot near the Stoli Bar at Living Village, and sip something stronger while you soak up the sounds.   Make your way (way) down to The Quarry for the first night of Collisions, a curation of world-class DJs by Craig Richards. This year, we’re doing things differently. The DJs will see you, but you won’t see them. It’s about the music, not who’s delivering it. Tonight, you’ll find Willow, Binh, and Bobby.. But not in that order.   End the whole experience with a sunrise performance by Floating Points, filling Solar Stage with his distinctive body-moving sounds.   Get your ticket, and get here. There's more to see than we can even describe.

Think of it as a home base for every Wonderer exploring The Fields, but with better booze.   SOT brings the big block party vibe together with food by Rad Meats, Peppina, and Haoma, and drinks from Monkey Shoulder. Kick it.   Wonderness is a sacred place for healing, wellness, fitness, and the spirit. This year it’s broken into elemental zones with activities to represent earth, air, fire, and water.   Polygon Live is back and it’s already looking even more immersive than ever before.

He’s on from 23:00.   There’s so, so much more to see, hear, feel, and experience in The Fields this weekend.
