Some unfortunate news this Wednesday: This weekend’s anticipated music festival, Wanderland 2020, has been postponed to an indefinite date. The news comes three days before its initial Mar. 7 to 8 schedule.
The announcement follows after a number of cancellations of numerous events, such as 88rising’s Head in the Clouds tour in Jakarta, where a number of acts were also set to perform at the Wanderland stage, including Joji, NIKI and Phum Viphurit.

The cancellation is in compliance with a directive of the City Government of Muntinlupa not to hold events at this time, due to an advisory from the World Health Organization (WHO) on the COVID-19’s high risk assessment.
