PATTAYA — This year’s Wonderfruit Festival has been rescheduled to next year in light of the death of His Majesty the Late King.

To observe a 100-day mourning period, Wonderfruit organizers announced Friday the four-day festival was postponed to February.

“Taking into account the sentiment of the country and the guidelines set by the government of Thailand, we will observe a 100-day grieving period, so we are able to pay our proper respects, in unity with the Thai people,” it reads.

The lineup for Wonderfruit’s third edition remains unchanged for now, while further updates will be posted on its website.

Tickets previously booked are still valid. Wonderfruiters unable to participate on the new dates can seek refunds via Eventpop Nov. 1-30.

Wonderfruit will run Feb. 16-19 at The Fields at the Siam Country Club in Pattaya, Chonburi province. Shuttle buses from city center to and from the venue will be available.

Pattaya can be reached by car or public transportation. Buses leave regularly throughout the day from Ekkamai’s Eastern Bus Terminal, the Northern Bus Terminal in Mo Chit or the Southern Bus Terminal.
