BLOG: “Wonderfruit” Extravaganza Offers Thai Twist on the Campover Music-and-arts Festival

Pop music festivals have long served as a pillar sustaining Thailand’s scrappy art scene, giving artists an ever-needed way to reach new audiences, earn income and experiment beyond gallery venues, often in collaboration with local deejays and musicians.

Now an extravagant new event will raise the local ante in terms of variety, funding, curatorial direction, audience breadth and international reach. Billed as “a journey through the arts,” the Wonderfruit Festival is a three-day outdoor bacchanalia being held on December 19–21 in the foothills of Chonburi Province, a two-hour drive south of Bangkok.
