Yes, we did the Math! A Wanderland 2017 ticket costs P5,915 on www.smtickets.com. Divide that by 16 performers, it would cost you only P369.69 per act.
It'll cost you a lot less if you get the Wanderbuddies bundle with three of your friends. It is priced at P19,350 (P4837.50/pax), which would turn out to be P302.34 per act.
