Featuring dance-punk duo DZ Deathrays, indie rockers Holy Holy, and synth star LANKS, the line-up boasts music makers from all over the globe, along with a strong Aussie representation. Triple J Unearthed Artist of the Year Stella Donnelly, Wollongong’s Totally Unicorn and Sydney folk act Alex the Astronaut are all there.
Set in the forest of Brownlow Hill Farm in Sydney’s west and designed as a kind of choose-your-own-adventure, the two-day boutique festival also features a regal banquet set amongst the trees, Disney karaoke, an appearance from a mystery bachelor or bachelorette and a kissing booth for festival-goers looking for love, among other things.
Secret Garden’s opening night will see Gardeners don their best teen threads thanks to a Year 10 Formal fancy dress theme and pile on to 14 forest dance floors to party the night away to tunes by Bris 182 – an 11-piece Blink 182 cover band.
As is custom, the line-up comes after tickets for the festival has sold out (sad face). But if you were wise enough to secure tickets ahead of time, you’re in for a real treat. Check out the full line-up below.
