In line with celebrating Thailand's artistry and traditional rice farming culture, an edible stage will be built for the Wonderfruit Festival this weekend and visitors are guaranteed to have a taste of it. The brainchild of the Pete Phornprapha, this project aims to have art and culture to be communicated sustainability but in a way that excites people.

This year, it will celebrate agricultural seminar-workshops and artistic installations where the edible stage stands in the flurry of activities. Wonderfruit Festival is more of a music fest, headlining with the country's top DJs with travelers wanting to take part in it.

Sustainability and eco-consciousness play a huge part in making the festivals happen especially with the 37m long Farm Stage to be eaten afterward. According to Phornprapha, they don't have to do it in a boring way. "It can actually be very sexy," he told Sea Globe.

He might be proud of Wonderfruit Festival's content and programs, but the rice stage is what they hold dearly. Performers and musicians will be on it while the crowds gather to the revelry.

And it seemed like international artists will be taking the lead stage like Jonny Greenwood from Radiohead, and Israeli musician Shye Ben Tzur. Of course, there will be young Thai performers going up the stage with their cutting edge productions.

The Farm Stage of Wonderfruit Festival is probably the world's most sustainable stage, Phornprapha said. It was inspired the Isaan farmers who build their structures out of rice after harvest season.

Celebrations would be held until the rice structure was given back to the community for consumption. The stage would be exactly like that when it embodies the festival's culture and art celebrations.

A portion of the proceeds from the event is given to a nature reserve in Indonesia and a restoration of a mangrove forest in Myanmar. For more information, you can check their website here.
