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.
