Sandwich will be one of the large OPM bands that will perform at the music and arts festival. They will be joined by indie band IV of Spades which recently launched their music video.
For the international acts, FKJ a.k.a. French Kiwi Juice will be joining Wanderland 2018 as well. The multi-instrumentalist also joined our country’s own Malasimbo festivals.
Wanderland just announced Lauv as one of their headliners for the music and arts festival in 2018. Fans who want to see him play in the Philippines will now have two chances to do so since he will be playing for Ed Sheeran in Manila as well.
Another pre-event that they may host is their collaborations with brands. In 2015, they had the Jansport x Wanderland Bonfire Session at Mall of Asia where local talents SUD, BP Valenzuela, and others performed.
