Take Me Back to Wanderland

It was such a fun yet tiring 8 hours of just listening to amazing music, being with solid friends and long lost ones. This was probably the Wanderland that had the greatest line up of artists – Bon Iver, Panama, Death Cab for Cutie, and The Naked & Famous, such that, I didn’t mind at all that that I have only eaten burrito and churros the whole day haha.

I arrived at the venue quite late due to work, but I really pressured my Uber driver to make it before Cheats and Panama’s performances. I like them so much!

It was already dawn, and for an hour, I was just looking for my friends. It was quite hard due to the amount of people – both locals and foreigners who I’ve heard flew all the way to Asia just to listen to the musical acts. I was also hungry so i started lining up for food stalls which were overly crowded! Good thing I got the chance to find my friends, thanks to the good LTE signal in the venue.

I wore this top from Neon Island, and it was my first purchase from this very creative and socially responsible store. love how trendy, wearable and good the quality is!

It was The Naked & Famous‘ time to perform. I loved singing to this indie electronic band’s hit songs like Young blood and Heart Like Ours. This is my kind of music again (going back to 2010!! hehe)

Fall back in love eventually ? #YoungBlood by #Naked&Famous!! #WanderlandMusicFest #globewanderland

Bon Iver

Then it was this man’s set. i basically wanted to drop everything (we were lining p for drinks, and thankfully, it was just a few minutes before we can finally go to the middle). It’s not hard to get emotional with ‪#‎BonIver‬‘s songs. Immediately when I saw winter/cool/blue backdrop’s at ‪#‎wanderlandmusicfest‬, I knew it was him and the feels that will come from his songs because it was that cathartic season,‪#‎bonhiver‬ (French word for “good winter”), that inspired him to write and play despite his liver condition.

Closing the fest: alternative rock band Death Cab for Cutie! He opened his set with What Sarah Said and it basically transported me back to the times I was struggling through a difficult time. These kinds of songs – the ones that helped you heal – left me teary-eyed at the venue.

I will forever be a wanderer. Despite how crowded this festival got (because well, it was really good), everything was worth it. Will definitely be back next year. For now, stay forever (listen to Panama below)

#GlobexWanderland2016

In 2013, Wanderland was founded and I got the chance to experience this indie festival, headlined by Temper Trap & Neon Trees, whose songs I first heard as soundtracks in TV shows that i watch. I really loved the experience and musical/artistic immersion in that event.I missed last year x Kid Cudi (ugh!!) but now, the annual music and arts festival, Wanderland is gearing up for another musical fete with this year’s anticipated line-up of international and local talents – see below. Together with the leader in digital lifestyle, Globe, on March 5, 2016, Saturday, at the Globe Circuit Events Grounds, festival aficionados are in for tons of special treats as they experience the excitement of the Globe Galaxy.

Festival Playlist

To get into that festival spirit, Globe has also put together a catch-up Spotify playlist to make sure you can sing together with the artists as they take over the Wanderland stage. From Bon Iver’s laidback tunes to Death Cab for Cutie’s hits, the #GlobeWanderland2016 playlist on Spotify should be on repeat this whole week.

Been a pro user of Spotify (follow me =) and it makes it so much easier to study and rekindle love for music of artists prior to the concert and share it with others.

#RayBanxWanderland

I like Wanderland. a festival that just started in Manila this year. Aside from showcasing international and local – Pinoy!! – indie musical acts, it’s also all about community and arts. Wanderland prides itself in bringing in anticipated international indie bands with homegrown indie acts on the same stage to cater a diaspora of music tastes. Wanderland has curated a loyal following, making it the premier music festival in the Philippines. I got to visit the Ray-Ban booth which has the same vision as Wanderland, with activities that brought music lovers closer.

Temper Trap & Neon Trees

So I experienced my first music festival ever and unlike concerts of top artists with big hits, I pretty much like how this one’s more interactive, peaceful and creative because you get to listen to different artists. I think that I will join more of this in the future!

One reason is also like Temper Trap which I first heard in soundtracks of movies or shows like Gossip Girl and 500 Days of Summer. They definitely deserve to be seen.
