Discover the music of Phase 1

19 August 2019 | Wonderfruit

It’s the sixth Wonderfruit, and we are so pleased to welcome a diverse lineup of live artists, producers, bands, and DJs. Wonderfruit has always been about more than the music—but we take our music curation as seriously as everything we do. Instead of “headliners” and supporting acts, every performance plays its part in the individual experiences we share with you, our Wonderers. We want every moment at Wonderfruit to be an expression of the mood, space, and atmosphere of The Fields. We want every sound to excite, explore, and embrace. We hope you’ll find something to love.

 

To help you prepare for your sonic journey this year, we’ve prepared this handy guide to all things musical at Wonderfruit. We’ll keep this page updated with new artists at each announcement, so check back soon for even more.

 

Sunrise and sunset is celebrated at Solar Stage, with sets signalling each change of day. Listen out for Massive Attack’s Daddy G, sunrise salutes by Floating Points and Acid Pauli, and Arp Frique & Family’s afro-disco. Gidge will fill the iconic Solar Stage structure with sparse electronic soundscapes. Trojan Sound System brings up the bass with an earth-shaking soundtrack of dub, dancehall, and reggae.

 

The Quarry welcomes the return of Craig Richards Collisions, a curated selection of daring DJs and challenging producers from here and far. Willow makes her debut in The Fields, Bobby. Will represent club fabric London, where he is a resident, and Felix Dickinson returns for another unforgettable session. Binh will share the fruits of his crate-digging labour, while Thai club fixture DOTT builds deep house textures. Stalwart Nick The Record brings decades of club and festival experience, joining Switzerland’s classically-trained Sonja Moonear and Japan’s playful Powder. With more than enough to fill the evenings, The Quarry will stay alive into the daylight hours for the first time in Wonderfruit’s history.

 

The natural amphitheatre of Theatre Stage will come to life with the orchestral jazz sounds of French ensemble Electric Vocuhila and heartfelt local four-piece Mattnimare. Musicity launches completely original compositions live onstage—pieces inspired by the celebrated locations and iconic structures of Bangkok. Rival Consoles is joined by Erased Tapes labelmates Daniel Brandt & Eternal Something, Douglas Dare, Japanese producer Midori Hirano, and Hatis Noit to create new sounds for the city.

 

The deep, dark decadence of Forbidden Fruit meets its heavenly match in the dance-starters of Ed Banger Records. The French institution helmed by Busy P will take over Forbidden Fruit with performances by signings Myd, Breakbot & Irfane, and the boss himself. Look out for special appearances by vocal collaborator Yasmin alongside the Ed Banger hitmakers, as well as an unmissable set by celebrated DJ icon and global pioneer Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy.

 

Polygon is returning to The Fields with its 360º sensory experience, ready to immerse all worthy visitors in light, touch, and projection arts by international VFX artists. Dark-hour dances will be delivered by Alejandro Castelli, Dandara, Kusht (Live), Alban Endlos (Live). Luis Rosenberg, Reple, Martha van Straaten, Xique-Xique (Live), Miret, Timboletti (Live), Spaniol, Matanza (Live), and Sainte Vie (Live).
