The fourth edition of Wonderfruit Festival in Thailand will feature acts such as Yeasayer, Wild Beasts, Nerve, Singto Numchok, Craig Richards and Matt Sassari

Anyone with music festivals on their radar know that Thailand's Wonderfruit isn't host to your average music mayhem. Built on the six pillars of arts, music, family, farm to feats, talks and workshops, and wellness and adventures, it's a nearby escape to an entire world built on a wholesome, sustainable living.

Back for its fourth edition, it boasts headliners such as Yeasayer, Wild Beasts, Nerve, Singto Numchok, Craig Richards and Matt Sassari. Apart from the more well-known acts, you can also look forward to uncovering gems hailing from our region: Rapper Curtismith from the Philippines and reggae musos Gapi and the Thai Dub Mafia from Thailand.

It's a hippie's Disneyland, updated with contemporary comforts and a commitment with sustainable living. Even if you've strictly come to dance, you'll be swayed to get involved in activities such as tai chi, kundalini and sound healing. The Rainforest Pavilion is dedicated to all things Indonesia, featuring music from the country as well as a feature on preserving rainforests. FARMacy encourages the use of natural, homegrown remedies and medicinal plants, celebrating the true Asian spirits of using healing tools from your kitchen and garden. Learn to sculpt your own clay bowls or try out light therapy at the Wonder Garden.

Wonderfruit Festival takes place from 14 to 17 December at The Fields at Siam Country Club in Pattaya, Thailand. Book tickets.
