WONDERFLIP is an experiential festival building on the idea that guests are not just passive observers, but active participants. The guests will be given the opportunity to dress up, purchase circus looks, become part of art and performances, and holistically experience the magic and vibe of the festival from within. WONDERFLIP’s artistic emphasis relies on cutting edge art installations; especially commissioned pieces will be designed and showcased by India’s leading artists, fashion designers and design studios. Most of them will be of immersive nature, inviting our guests to interact and engage with the pieces. Over the next five years, WONDERFLIP aims to become India’s premier cutting edge performing arts festival, pushing the boundaries with expression in art, technology and culture.
For female guests, the festival offers a special all women’s glamp-site under the name “GAIA”, with pickup/drop off facilities from the airport, female security guards, and all kinds of awesome female-specific festival gear. WONDERFLIP has also become deeply involved with the local community, and created a village activation program that aims to provide livelihood to the community. WONDERFLIP’s eco-initiatives ensure that no trace is left behind. The festival has several recycling partners for plastic and cigarette butts, provide free drinking water re-filling stations, and have designed an eco-friendly sewage disposal system that ensures all sewage generated at the festival campsite is treated and turns into earth-positive fertilizer for the fields to enjoy once the festival draws to a close.
