Following the cancelation of next month’s Wonderfruit Festival, the folks behind Pattaya’s answer to Coachella are back with a season-long, locals-only spinoff. Moobaan Wonder will turn The Fields at Siam Country Club into a space for performances, workshops, food, design and more across five weekends starting Dec. 4 and ending Jan. 17.
Each three-day weekend will bring something different with more than 200 performers, 40 workshops, 40 food outlets and 80 design stores set to take part.
Think musicians and DJs like Yellow Fang, Sabai Sabai Radio, Sarayu, Sunju Hargun, Singtho Namchuk, and Greasy Cafe, plus shows put on by the Tiffany’s Pattaya crew on the main stage every weekend.
For activities, expect sustainability workshops for the whole family, from ceramics and painting to home composting and craft-making using upcycled materials.
In between it all, local artists, architects and designers will transform the landscape with immersive installations and creative spaces.
Fruitfull, the pandemic-era offshoot that recently hosted a weekend of feasts and festivities at the Jim Thompson House, will operate a lakeside restaurant and space for culinary pop-ups. Here, you’ll find an all-day cafe and bar by the Samrub for Thai team, ya dong cocktails from Studio Lam, and more.
The entire program will be underscored by Wonderfruit’s commitment to sustainability. There will be a ban on single-use plastics, while biodegradable plates, cups and cutlery will be used as fertilizer for an onsite farm, food waste will be composted, glass and aluminum will be recycled, liquids will be naturally treated, and coconut husks shredded to fertilize the coconut groves.
Tickets are THB690 for day passes, THB2,190 for single weekends, or THB6,800 for the full season (all five weekends). Dates are Dec. 4-6, Dec. 11-13, Dec. 25-27, Jan. 8-10, and Jan. 15-17.
