The award-winning Secret Garden Party is a much-loved and a truly independent event, offering 4 days of immersive entertainment and camping, with the focus on championing new and creative ideas.
Situated in a beautiful location by a shimmering lake it offers over 10 live music and dj stages, a multitude of games, parades, performances, secret happenings, thought-provoking art installations, delicious food and drink, outdoor swimming, stunning unique visual displays and much much more. It is all lovingly curated with meticulous attention to detail.
The intention is to transport ‘gardeners’ into a temporary magical parallel world in which they can reawaken a carefree sense of childish fun and playfulness.
By popular demand, this year sees the return of the incredibly competitive Dance Off, where contestants vie for the prestigious top award. There’s Chai Wallahs, Feast of Fools, Secret FM, Small World, The Drop, The DogHouse, The Living Room (acoustic), the (now infamous) secret bar, an even larger Pagoda dance stage overlooking the Lake, and a new version of the Collosillyum, reborn as The Circus Maximus and hosted by renowned inclusive party organisers He.She.They.
This year also sees a fun-packed north field with parades, wild swimming, immersive theatre, aerial displays, and luxe boutique camping experiences. As always, there will be the iconic paint fight and fireworks spectacle in the main arena, plus art installations and many silly games.
With highly acclaimed live acts to a full DJ line-up (plus a very healthy stack of DnB on offer) for 2023 there’s certain to be intergalactic space stations to suit all tastes.
