After a massive, magical, but chill day 1, you’d think Wanderland Music Festival's day 2 is a slowdown. Because after all, it’s a Sunday. But nope. The first day was just Wanderland's way of saying, “We’re just getting started!”

All local and international acts gave the audience a trick of their own. And it was a blast. Another successful event brought to us by Karpos Multimedia

The second day was a revelation. 


Headlining it was The Kooks, who came all the way from the United Kingdom.

To the band’s surprise, they were received warmly by the audience who were all dancing and singing along to their songs, such as “She Moves in Her Own Way”, and “Naïve”.

They were so surprised that the band’s frontman, Luke Pritchard, even said, “We didn’t know we had much love in the Philippines!”

The last day of Wanderland Music Festival was comprised of Masego (US), who made every single one of us dance to his amazing “TrapHouseJazz” style, and even gracing us with fresh tunes and beats he made on the spot!

Then there’s the female powerhouse: Alina Baraz (US), Clairo (US), and Clara Benin (PH).

It was our first time to hear about Clairo, and her music is definitely one you should check out and listen to.

Then there’s our dose of much-needed jazz from Dayaw (PH), and PREP (UK), who by the way, was just in Manila a few months ago for an intimate gig at 19 East.

For R&B, gracing the stage was Nathan & Mercury (PH), as well as Mac Ayres (US) who serenaded his audience as the sun sets.

Representing the Philippines, Sandwich rocked and stood out with their powerful guitar riffs, amazing drum interlude, and LSS-inducing lyrics.

And who could have forgotten that impromptu dance-off featuring Enzo Hermosa of Cheats and Eco del Rio of Autotelic?

Hailing from South Korea, ADOY made us dance with their dreamy and upbeat synth-pop tunes, with lyrics which will remind you of your youth.


Day 2, to put it simply, was a whirlwind of emotions — in the best way possible. It’s where acoustic and rock meets jazz, groovy and soul, with a hint of trap and the R&B you never thought you needed. While it may seem like chaos, it’s not. It actually blended and complemented each other at the same time — creating a balance to our ears. But whatever the genre it was, one thing’s for sure: the audience absolutely loved every bit of it.


Two days of Wanderland Music Festival was indeed magical. They may not be the first to do it, but the team behind it were definitely the ones who made the best 2-day music festival ever in the Philippines!



Everything was well-organized: from the lockers, the well-curated food and brand concessionaires, to the very orderly portalets (they have men in charge of dispensing tissues and sanitizers and spraying disinfectants), activities, and most importantly, how they continue to showcase local talent with the annual live art.
