Check Out this Newest Performers Joining Carly Rae Jepsen, Phoenix, FKJ, Sunset Rollercoaster, Men I Trust, No Rome, And More All-Stars for WANDERLAND 2023

MANILA, Philippines—The Wanderland Music and Arts Festival is officially underway, according to organizers Karpos Multimedia, who recently released the roster at an exclusive lineup announcement party attended by media, influencers, partners, artists, and fortunate Wanderers from the community.

This year marks Wanderland’s return after a three-year hiatus, and the festival is shaping up to be one for the books. Aside from the previously announced headliners, Phoenix and Carly Rae Jepsen, here’s a preview of the lineup.

Iconic rock stars

If there’s one thing that keeps energies high and brings the crowd together in music festivals, it’s songs with lyrics that are better to sing-along to paired with hard-hitting beats. Leave it up to new additions Dashboard Confessional and Rico Blanco to keep the crowd alive through nostalgic soundtracks in iconic rock fashion.

Both artists have left legacies since the 2000s, so it is definitely an honor to be rocking with hall-of-famers at this year’s Wanderland.

Soulful, swoon-worthy superstars

Our hunch was right all along–Raveena pulls through and will finally play her first show in the Philippines! Raveena was one of the most sought-after acts in the then canceled 2020 edition of Wanderland, so many were still dreaming that she would make a comeback in 2023.

Indeed, she is and we know Wanderers are already so ecstatic to swoon over delightfully honest and enchanting tracks alongside other soulful superstars, FKJ, Men I Trust and Stephen Day.

Applaud to Asian acts

Wanderland continues to uplift Asian acts to a world-class festival stage, adding Bangok-based duo HYBS to the lineup.

If you haven’t heard of them, a HYBS playlist is one that’s perfect for cruising. With music that touches on R&B and laidback pop influences, it’s easy to get hooked.

There’s no other way to put it but we’re more than ready to experience the immaculate HYBS vibes live.

HYBS joins other Asian acts, Sunset Rollercoaster, Balming Tiger, George and Leo Wang. Locals with versatile sounds and vocals

Ylona Garcia’s rise to fame began in the local showbiz industry but she has since ventured into her musical career, growing as an internationally-acclaimed artist under the 88Rising music label in 2021. She debuted with “Entertain Me” followed by “Vibin,” which currently has a combined 30M streams on Spotify. Ylona has mentioned that the tracks allude to where she sonically and artistically wants her music to be, so expect her to bring the fun, sass, and entertainment to the Wanderland stage.

Flu is a four-piece vintage soul and funk band guaranteed to spread only sick grooves and funky beats that’s meant to keep heads bopping and feet dancing. Flu is also a returnee from the 2020 lineup, so we’re happy to finally get that disco dance party started at Wanderland.

The Ridleys is an alternative-folk band set to serenade Wanderers with their music’s candid stories and smooth melodies. Their art of storytelling shines through their charming personalities and talents, hearts are bound to be won over at the festival–and we’d love to see that.

They join previously announced homegrown artists No Rome, Blaster, August Wahh and The Sundown.

Wanderland stays true to raising the bar of pulling together epic festival headliners, iconic rock stars, soulful & swoon-worthy superstars, multi-dimensional Asian acts, and versatile local artists in their lineup but this year brings another level of excitement for Wanderers and music lovers who have been longing and eagerly anticipating  for the festival’s return.

Aside from the music lineup, Wanderland also continues to champion art with their Wanderartists, Alaga, Amiel Rivera, Faith De Leos, and Wika Nadera, who will all be performing live art at the festival. It has always been tradition to have the Wanderartists’ creations bring life, color, and creativity to the festival grounds, so we’re keen to see what kind of a game-changing visual spectacle they’ll come up with this year.
