What Is Secret Garden Party?

Sounds pretty innocent, doesn’t it? It’s not all tea and cucumber sandwiches though. Nope, not that kind of garden. And definitely not that kind of party. This is a

This is a full-blown music and arts festival where for four days straight revellers run riot. Getting silly and messy is totally encouraged (we’re talking about mud wrestling, action camp activities and paint fights. What did you think we meant??) 

So What Cool Things Are At Secret Garden Party This Year?

This year’s music lineup includes bands like Metronomy, Toots & the Maytals and Honne. Away from the stages, there’s art installations, pyrotechnics displays, spiritual activities, and just generally lots of people in crazy outfits that will make you feel blissfully normal. 

If you want to really make the most of the four days, you can hire out a luxury tent, sleep hut or tipi. Or a hot tub. Because really, every manicured English garden should have one. 

The Secret Garden Party takes place in Abbots Ripton, Cambridgeshire. Despite the name, it’s not really a secret — so definitely get your tickets while they’re still available. 

In Short:

  • Not the kind of ""garden party"" with tea and sandwiches (though those are awesome, too, let's be honest)
  • Plenty of chances to run riot - mud wrestling and paint fights included
  • An awesome line-up of bands
  • Art installations, activities and general craziness
