We’ve finally put the pieces together, after several attempts on completing this year’s lineup with occasional hints. On its seventh year, Wanderland is bringing flaming new artists and a bunch of our classic indie favorites on board at the Filinvest City Events Grounds from March 9 to 10. Wanderland Magic is looking more than promising, so we better ready our emotions along with our wallets.
On March 9, expect to meet Two Door Cinema Club, whose hits like “Changing of the Seasons” and “What You Know” will have us revisit our emotional-in-one-corner selves back in 2012. Alex Trimble, Kevin Baird, and Sam Halliday will be joined by electro-pop bodymovers Honne, Joan, and SG Lewis; added with a bit of soul by JMSN; and intensifies it thanks to singer-songwriter Gabrielle Aplin, who’s expressed through Twitter her anticipation on her Manila show.

The first day will also be blessed with Singapore’s Charlie Lim, whom we previously talked about passion and burnout with. This wave caps off with our local lyrical geniuses UNIQUE, Autotelic, Reese Lansangan, and the Wanderbattle champions of Intertwined.
On the other hand, March 10 promises a more diverse chase, with The Kooks headlining the event with its alluring tracks. Adding in to the formula are African-Amerian “TrapHouseJazz” artist Masego; rhythm and blues saviors Alina Baraz, Mac Ayres, and Prep; city-pop synth striker Adoy; and also bedroom pop favorite Clairo. We’re expecting the stage being knocked down as local acts come with their loudest in music and emotion, and some fusion fantasy, including Sandwich, Nathan & Mercury, and Dayaw.
We’ll also keep our eyes peeled for live art, thanks Vena Martinez, Frances Dandan, Raco Ruiz, and Joshua Panaligan.
