But before we take off to outer space, here's a list of songs to add to your playlist and listen to before the music festival:

Our top 5 picks:

Death Cab For Cutie - Black Sun
We'll be hearing a lot more from the rock band Death Cab For Cutie as they return to Manila for the second time around.

The three-member band is currently promoting its 8th studio album Kintsugi, which was released last March 2015. Filipino music festivalgoers can expect a performance of their latest single "Black Sun" at the concert. OtherĀ Death Cab For Cutie songs worth listening to are "Soul Meets Body," "I Will Follow You Into The Dark," and "You Are A Tourist."

Bon Iver - Holocene
American indie fold band Bon Iver is going to a place "they've never been" as they visit Manila for the first time for Wanderland 2016. It's been a while since the band went on tour and this year, the Philippines is one of their destinations. Expect the Grammy award-winning band to perform their biggest hit titled "Holocene" at the music fest. Also, check out the songs "Towers," "Skinny Love," and "Blood Bank."

The Naked and Famous - Young Blood
The Naked and Famous, an electronic indie band from New Zealand, will also be in the country for the first time. Listeners can get "chill vibes" from the five-man Kiwi band especially when they perform "Young Blood." This song has been used in several American TV shows such as Awkward and The Secret Circle. Other songs that definitely will bring you eargasmic sensation are "Girls Like You," "Bells," and "Bright Lights."

San Cisco - Awkward
"Awkward" by the Aussie foursome band San Cisco is the perfect song for the mostly-millenial concertgoers at Wanderland music fest. Fans often gush about their youthful sound, which is apparent in fan-fave singles such as "Fred Astaire," "Wild Things," and "Magic." Wanderers might also like their cover of Taylor Swift's "Style" and Daft Punk's "Get Lucky."
Jensen and The Flips - Dangerous
Jensen and the Flips is one Pinoy band to watch for in the OPM scene. Some of the band's must-hear songs before the concert are "Dangerous," "Slow," and "Is This Love." Currently, the band is nominated as Favorite New Artist in MYX Music Awards 2016.
