Two surprise acts added to the Wanderland 2023 lineup!


Wanderland: The Comeback came out of left field as they announced two wildcards joining the lineup for their comeback this March.

And we’re not mad about it.

K-pop’s iconic rapper

Kim Ji-Won, better known by his stage name, Bobby, is a part of K-pop group, iKON, originally formed in 2015.

The versatile singer-rapper made a solo debut a year later and released his first full-length album, Love and Fall, in 2017—which ranked second in the Billboard World Albums chart. Although he has made a solo career for himself, his connections with fellow iKON members don’t go unnoticed. His second album, Lucky Man, featured collaborations with Donghyuk and Junhoe.

Bobby explained that solo artist-Bobby is different from iKON-Bobby: “In the group, I feel cozy and comfortable. The members also help fill up the music. But as a solo artist, I have to fill up three minutes on my own. I end up thinking deeper into how I should fill that time up.”

It’s a different kind of vulnerability when an artist pours their own thoughts and feelings into a song. When you put that together with hard-hitting beats and energy, you’re in for a thrilling performance that’s hard to miss.

The muse in music

((( O )))’s music is one that’s experimental, reflective, and creative to its core.

It’s a form of art that we’ve never really seen before. She has fully embraced her connection with nature and commitment to sustainable living through her music, calling each full-length album release a sundrop.

“I’m powered by the sun and don’t depend on anyone. Creating art without needing anyone’s approval is the most pure form of discovering yourself.”

Her spiritual energy, strong-willed values, and love story with nature translate into her music repertoire—and it is quite literally a breath of fresh air. If listening to her tracks don’t leave your soul nourished, close your eyes and listen again. Better yet, catch a live performance of it.

We know that she’s set to drop ((( 4 ))) very soon and we have a strong feeling that her Wanderland debut might be something extra special because of it.

The two wildcards further boost the diversity and distinct flairs of the acts lined up for Wanderland this year. We can’t wait to have two full days of discovery, entertainment, fun, and winning moments with the entire community.

What a comeback it truly will be.
