Six homegrown rookie performers––who do you think will make the cut?
If there’s one thing we can count on every year, it’s that Wanderland Festival steps up its game every year. With performers like Foals, Omar Apollo, Ben&Ben and IV of Spades among its list of acts for next year (and that isn’t even half of their wave one lineup, mind you), this year is no exception. It’s no wonder, then, why local bands look at the yearly Wanderbattle contest as a shining beacon of musical hope––if it’s a shot to get their name out there that they’re looking for, there’s really no better place to try their luck.
Following the online voting period, the pool of ten Wanderbattle Manila bands has been whittled down to six semi-finalists. Scroll through for a glimpse at the hopefuls who will be competing on November 23rd at Social House, Circuit Makati for a slot to perform at Wanderland Music & Arts Festival 2020!
