Wonderfruit 2015--A 4 days music and lifestyle Festival is back for the second year after its first debut in 2014. Personally speaking, I thought of not going to Wonderfruit this time just because the only artist that I want see live performance is Rhye. Also, the line-up was not as good as the first year. I am talking about the unforgettable performances of Woodkid, Little Dragon, De La Soul, and Jose Gonzalez in 2014. Having these international artists together in 1 event is like a dream!
I never thought that we would have this kind of event in Thailand. Though I was complaining a lot about the musical line-up, my friends and I ended up going there for the 2nd time in a row and I am happy to say we were not disappointed at all. In fact we really enjoyed ourselves and had a real great time.
Why Wonderfruit is worth a visit? It offers variety of interesting activities for everyone. Music, arts installation, adventure activities, food, festival fashion & accessories, special performances, craft & workshops, make-up, play ground for kids...You name it, they have it. Definitely the place to get inspired as it full of life and color! The only thing that annoyed pretty much everyone was the dirty dust in the air that my friends and I got sick after spending long hours for 3 days at Wonderfruit. Hence, for the festival to truly become "eco-friendly"they would have to work hard on growing more grass to have more green spaces in order to really reduce air pollution, improve mental and physical health. Apart from that most of the things have been improved. Especially the sound system which is a lot better than last year! So well done Wonderfruit!

Though I prefer last year line-up. There're several impressive performances. My favourite act was none other than Rhye. Milosh's soft soulful tone has us all swooning with joy. Besides, Submotion Orchestra, Harts and even local musicians like Pongsit Kumpee, Greasy Cafe, and Animal Machine were pretty awesome too! Here are some live performances that I've recorded. The quality of the videos is not the best but I just want to show you the great vibes!
Just can't ignore Harts' energetic performance and his insane guitar solo
