An annual feel good habit happening on the 25 April 2015 where the Globe Circuit Grounds will serve as a huge nest of loads of fun, adventure, dining, and eargasm from noon ‘til midnight.

Last year was filled with carnival themed get-up within the whole festival grounds with fun outdoor carnival games to top the vibe. Leading Australian, British, American, and Filipino Indie artists played to a huge crowd of Indie music loving people! On its third year, Wanderland will bring the Central District of Manila a full-fledged camp festival experience for a guilt-free music and art satisfaction. Troupes and backpackers raise their banners for a one-day getaway to such blissful and surreal camp experience with outdoor activities such as music exhibitions, live art, treasure hunt, and obstacle courses. But there’s no stopping there. Cool thingamajigs like hammocks, tents, smores stations, and freedom walls are also present – only the best of the best. Genuine camp feels, people from all walks of life, a community of free spirits and young dynamic individuals – plus art, music from all stretches of the Indie genre, and nature all together.

Kid Cudi

KID CUDI took the Internet by storm with his 2008 breakout single, “Day ‘n’Nite,” which scored two Grammy nominations in 2010 and was also featured on the 2008 mixtape called A Kid Named Cudi. In 2012, the Cleveland native and Brooklyn resident returned to the Grammys, this time taking home an award for “All of the Lights,” a collaboration with Kanye West, Rihanna and Fergie from Cudi’s 2009 release, Man on the Moon: The End of Day, which also delivered the Ratatat-produced hit, “Pursuit of Happiness,” featuring MGMT. Cudi followed The End of Day in 2010 with the full-length sequel, Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager. He also produced a self-titled collaboration with Dot da Genius as the duo, WZRD. In 2013, he released Indicud, an 18-track record featuring contributions from Kendrick Lamar, A$AP Rocky, RZA, King Chip, and former Fleet Foxes drummer, Father John Misty.

RAC

For his full-length debut Strangers, composer/remixer/producer RAC called on more than a dozen guest musicians to bring to life his lush and dreamy hybrid of indie-pop and electro. The mastermind behind much-acclaimed reimaginations of tracks by Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Lana Del Rey, and Bastille, the multi-instrumentalist born André Allen Anjos co-wrote and produced each of the album’s 16 songs without ever meeting most of his collaborators (a lineup that includes Golden Globe-winning composer Alex Ebert of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Tegan & Sara, Tokyo Police Club,Katie Herzig, and Cherrytree recording artist Matthew Koma). But while its title nods to the lack of literal companionship between Anjos and his guest artists, Strangers emerges as an intensely warm and intimate album fuelled by RAC’s gift for fusing breezy melody with fresh, forward-pushing sound.

Augustana

"Life Imitating Life" flips the next page for Augustana. The Southern California, and now Nashville transplant group's fourth full-length album, "Life Imitating Life," and first for Washington Square and Razor & Tie sees singer, guitarist, and songwriter Daniel Layus wholeheartedly embracing Augustana's musical touchstones, while simultaneously progressing. His own journey proves central to these ten tracks, making for a passionate, poetic, and powerful story.

Since starting while its members were in college, Augustana has built a remarkable history of their own. 2005's "All The Stars and Boulevards," its follow-up "Can't Love, Can't Hurt" in 2008, and most recently "Augustana" cumulatively exceed sales of 500,000 albums. In addition, they've enjoyed single sales of 2.5 million and counting. Meanwhile, "Boston", "Sweet & Low", and "I Still Ain't Over You" vaulted to the Top 10 at AAA Radio, while "Boston" reached #1 at Hot AC and landed in the Top 25 of Top 40. Not to mention, they've played to packed houses around the world while headlining and supporting the likes of OneRepublic, Snow Patrol, Dashboard Confessional, and more.

Layus is inviting everybody along to live this Life with him. "Ultimately I just want to put something positive out there in the world. I feel an undeniably strong need to create and release something that feels positive and hopeful and important in an artistic way. If it can inspire somebody or help them when they're in a rough spot in their lives, a place I've been before and survived to tell the tale, then what a special thing to be able to do."

The Jungle Giants

How much can change in two years? For Brisbane indie rock band The Jungle Giants, the answer is: A lot. Since their first performance in February 2011 The Jungle Giants have released two EPs upon an ever- increasing fan base, undertaken countless national tours (including a series of plum supports, festival spots and their own sell-out club shows), and have capped off their first two years with recording sessions for their first full-length release. The result is The Jungle Giant’s debut album ‘Learn To Exist’.

A concept in itself, ‘Learn to Exist’ is for the most-part an auto-biographical collection of songs penned by The Jungle Giants’ front man Sam Hales. “A lot of the writing that went into this album was me trying to figure out relationships and how to translate a feeling honestly into a song,” says Sam. “These songs tell the story of what happened to me over the course of 2012: they reflect either something that meant a lot to me or changed me.”

Youngblood Hawke

YOUNGBLOOD HAWKE just released their brand new single, “Pressure,” and premiered a lyric video for the song on VEVO. “Pressure” shines a light on the path YOUNGBLOOD HAWKE have taken over the last year. Entrancing harmonies, vivid imagery and an uplifting hook bring you inside the minds of YBH and show a glimpse of the band’s future. It’s undoubtedly a treat for the fans and newcomers as well.

Their 2013 full-length debut, Wake Up, received praise from Rolling Stone, NME, The Huffington Post, and more. It landed in the Top 10 of iTunes Albums Chart, Top 5 of iTunes alternative Chart and was iTunes editor’s choice. YBH went on to play countless sold-out headline gigs throughout 2013

Lewis Watson

Enthused by the rapid growth of his devoted online fan-base which he earned after posting a series of home-recorded performances to YouTube, Lewis Watson self-released his debut EP It’s Got Four Sad Songs On It BTW in the summer of 2012. It topped the iTunes singer-songwriter chart on the first day of release, outselling the likes of Adele, Madonna and Ed Sheeran in the process, and landed the then nineteen-year-old singer-songwriter a deal with Warner Bros. Records.

Lewis’s profile has continued to grow ever since. All five of his EPs to date have hit the Top 10 at iTunes, each building on the sales of the previous release. Now he finds himself in an unconventional yet enviable position. After already effectively releasing two full albums worth of material, his debut album The Morning will be unleashed this summer.

Alongside playing almost ninety shows across three continents, Lewis dedicated most of 2013 to writing new material for possible inclusion on the album. “There were times where I really disliked writing every day. It felt like more of chore than I thought it should’ve,” he admits. “But it was a great problem to have to be able to look back at sixty songs and say, ‘I want these on the album.’ The ones that I chose really are the cream of the crop.”

Hale

From the band that brought you hits such as “Broken Sonnet”, “The Day You Said Goodnight”, “Waltz”, “Bahay Kubo” and many more. With a career that's spanned almost six years, four albums, a handful of live performances, triple platinum selling band, HALE, consisting of Champ Lui Pio, Roll Martinez, Sheldon Gellada and Paolo Santiago, is back with their new single, “See You”.

Hale is definitely excited about their return to the music scene and is feeling very positive on the OPM scene starting this year. They are gearing up for their comeback and are excited to meet their fans soon. “We're working on some really exciting tracks right now and we don't want to spill some beans this early. But right now the energy is so high it feels like 2004 all over again.”

This former piano prodigy impresses with her songwriting flair, humor and charisma onstage. With her trademark visual & musical style, KT is eye + ear candy.

The Strange Creatures

The Strange Creatures are a Philippine-based indie pop band formed in January 2013 whose influence ranges from dream-pop to ‘80s new wave, twee-pop to indie folk music.

Riddled with boy-girl harmonies, jangly/ambient guitars, warm basslines and a steady backbeat, they make guitar-pop tunes that evoke pastel summers and sepia-tinged nostalgia. One which gravitates toward the emotional ends of melancholia, joy and in between.

On February 2014, they released their second single, "I Feel Like I'm On Drugs" which caught the attention of an alternative radio station in Manila (Jam 88.3) and charted in their weekly Top Ten. The Strange Creatures was also featured in a Malaysian-based music and pop culture magazine, Time Out Kuala Lumpur.

They released their debut EP, Stargazer on May 10, 2014.

Austin

Austin started out in November 2013 with old bandmates, Dave and Nigel. The two were catching up, sharing playlists, and influences when they decided to create a band. The two were then joined by their friend, Wilton who was eventually asked to join the band. That started things for Austin.

The band got its name by watching performances from one of the more famous festival in the US, Austin City Limits Festival.

Things started out really slow for the band; meetings and jamming sessions were organized and conflicts of ideas and influences eventually ensued. But despite all that, the band stuck to their passion and started making their own songs. Two years later and Austin is still very much passionate at performing and song writing.

Throughout the years, the band had a few additions to its original members. The first one was Israel (the band’s original bassist and an old friend of Dave's), who is now an honorary Austin band member. Israel was then replaced by Kim (new bassist). Despite having bigger commitments of his own, Kim didn't hesitate to join Austin's aimless aspirations. The last addition to the band was Marco which gave the band a much wider dimension to its sound.

Crwn

CRWN is a personal outlet for whatever his mood is, or how things are going for him at that moment he hits record. Some of his tracks are perfect for popping a bottle of champagne before going out, while some are fit for a laid-back night at home. There’s a certain intimacy that can be felt in his tracks, since he works on them from the comfort of his own room. It’s a glimpse into King’s personal side. After all, being called royalty is a reason to raise your glasses, and CRWN is the sound of celebration. (Words by Mariah Reodica)

Fxxxblynt

FXXXYBLNT (read as: Foxy Blunt" to those who prefer their words to come with vowels) is making waves in the emerging Filipino producer bloc, assuming his role with ethereal, slightly spooking approach, willing to make a statement in his uncompromising blend of future R&B, bass music and chilled electronica.

FXXXYBLNT continuously pushes the creative boundaries of electronic music through sample-based creations and savvy production skill set. His music is constantly featured on international music sites like Hypetrak and Hearing Gold, as well as in a handful of music channels on Youtube. He also opened for Blackbird Blackbird and Slow Magic during their shows here in Manila.

His top 3 tracks, "Window Water Baby Moving," "Sleep of the Lovers," and "Take Me There ft. Touurs" are proof that this producer has some banging visions that stretches the boundaries of electronic music.

FXXXYBLNT is currently working on his debut album that will feature new music with collaborations with some of the local and international beat scene's best and up-and-coming producers.

BP Valenzuela

B. P. Valenzuela is a 19 year old electronic musician with analog sensibilities –– aside from being a producer, she is a singer-songwriter first and foremost. She eschews laptops for intimacy, instead arming herself with electronic friends: drum machines, analog synthesizers, loop stations and samplers ––– having all of them subtly interweave into the sometimes quiet, sometimes dancy, organic and ambient selements that make it a unique experience live. Out of a whim in her freshman year, she began to start writing for herself, and was introduced to audiences and airwaves with her critically acclaimed self-produced debut EP: be/ep. Soon to release her full-length album, The Neon Hour, she has gained traction with the fancy, exuberant internet single "Pretty Car" and be/ep's single, the quiet and introspective "General Scheme of Things". Her songs touch on the gray area of heartbreak, where pain meets joy, where memories meet the present, amongst themes of alienation and her coming of age against the backdrop of meticulous, moody, and catchy electropop.

Similar Objects

Producer Jorge Wieneke used to sing for a punk band, but was inspired by minimalism, abstract art, and hip hop to create beats and produce more experimental, art-driven music. He released some of this material under the name “milkriddles” (myspace.com/milkriddles).

More recently, Jorge has been using a matryoshka doll as point of meditation and focusing on the relationship of all things similar. His current project, Similar Objects, documents moments and emotions that are universally experienced and is inspired by Jung’s belief in the existence of a second psychic system of a collective and impersonal nature. The resulting releases are collections of off-kilter beat-haze tracks that evoke otherwordly environments and which cut across genres such as ambient, minimal, glitch, hip-hop, and IDM.
