Our exploration of Sound goes deeper than just DJ sets. We look for artists who tell a story, bring meaning to their performances and create connections with their audiences. Wonderfruit 2023 was filled with these kinds of performances, from the gentle melodies that awakened Solar Village each morning to the regional collectives that sent vibrations across Forbidden Fruit, and the Molam legends that celebrated culture alongside Wonderers at Molam Village.

We’ve begun sharing some performances that best represent the spirit of Wonderfruit 2023. Travel back with us and relive some of those special moments from home.
