New date and venue: TBA

The annual music festival saw artists pulling out due to travel restrictions but decided to push through by getting other acts to fill in the slots.

All lights were green, but due to the directive of the City Government of Muntinlupa not to hold the festival, Karpos Multimedia had no choice but to postpone Wanderland to a later date. According to the event organizer, refund details will be up soon, and that they're still working to reschedule. In their words, "It's not game over, Wanderers. We're just at a time out."
