We look back at Secret Garden Festival

walkway

It’s been a HUGE couple of years for the team at Sydney’s favourite boutique Secret Garden Festival. Aside from marketing a festival that always manages to sell out even before the lineup is announced, they’re well known for creating a nuanced festival that manages to surprise and keep punters on their toes each year.

They’re about to celebrate their eighth festival together, and it’s going to be a big one.

At past festivals, they’ve raised over $200,000 for charity from their bar and ticket sales alone, so it’s definitely an investment that’s in good hands. Aside from this, they work hard at keeping the festival site an incredible vibrant space for punters to dress up, enjoy the music and enjoy a trip to a one of a kind festival that you won’t see anywhere else in Australia.

It’s well known for it’s communal atmosphere and opportunities to get a little wild with your costume.

Ahead of the opening of their ticket sales on Wednesday at 11am (November 11), we thought we’d look back at the last few years of Secret Garden Festival and pick a few of our favourite artists as highlights to get you pumped for Wednesday and beyond.

No idea where she’ll be in 10 years, but as long as she has a good record and a glass of white wine, she’ll be sweet.
