Bandwagon's Guide to Wanderland Planet 2016

There's No Place Like Space!

Over the years, Wanderland has taken us to day camp, a carnival, and a whimsical wonderland. This year, we blast off to space with Captain Bob! Before takeoff, here's what you need to know as you prepare to explore Wanderland Planet.

Stellar Stars

Wanderland 2016 has their strongest line up to date. Here's a look at the headliners:

Bon Iver (US)

Do you know what it feels like to experience a heartbreak that never actually happened? This headliner is bound to make you feel all sorts of things with their music. Back after a brief hiatus, Bon Iver is working on new material, touring Southeast Asia (here's what happened at their Singapore show last week) and finally making a stop in Manila. They're a band no one ever expected to be on the line up and the announcement was certainly a pleasant surprise for their fans who have followed them since For Emma, Forever Ago. The surprise doesn't end there, though, as they will be also be joined by English indie folk trio, The Staves

The Staves themselves have confirmed with us on Twitter that they will be joining the band at Wanderland. 


Death Cab for Cutie (US)

This will be the band's second time in Manila and their first show here without founding guitarist Chris Walla. Now officially a trio, Death Cab for Cutie has enlisted the help of touring musicians Zac Rae and Dave Depper. Still indie rock legends (and Seth Cohen's favorite band), DCFC is sure to take us on an emotional nostalgia trip with their tear-inducing discography. 

Space Jam: A Wanderland Planet Mixtape

Getting a head start on the month of March, we made a mixtape ourselves to help you cruise your way to Wanderland Planet. Featuring music from this year's line up, follow the alien (out of this world) and press play:
