Secret Garden Party

18/19/20 August

2006

Secret Garden Party is pleased to announce it will enter its fourth year this summer with the biggest and best line-up ever over the Bank Holiday weekend, now with three live music stages. With its wonderful setting, hidden in a magical Cambridgeshire countryside, this is one of the summer's most must have tickets. Tickets for the 3-day event which takes place on 18/19/20 August will be priced at £90; £75 for Early Birds.

Graham Coxon, Prince Buster, Larrakin Love, The Long Blondes, Lily Allen, Envy &Other Sins, Howling Bells, Ok Go, The Real Tuesday Weld, Robots In Disguise, Utah Saints (exclusive decks n'FX set), Adam Freeland, Holly Golightly, Dub Pistols,

The Chalets, The Kicks, Dawn Penn, The Loose Cannons, Seal Club Clubbing, Frank Popp Ensemble, The Infadels, Super Nashwan, The Rumble Strips,and many many more to follow.

Since it's inauguration in 2004 capacity has increased from 1,500 to 3,000. This year there will be room for around 5,000 revellers…though to keep its unique appeal this is likely to be the maximum desired by the organisers. The festival has grown organically and has a loyal and enthusiastic following.

SGP is one of the few festivals that has not been taken over by corporate sponsors with logos and advertising at every fence post. It is not until you are actually there that this becomes apparent and really hits home. Not since the early days of Glastonbury or Woodstock has this sort of setting being available, albeit in a smaller, more manageable location. The gorgeous setting is also part of SGP's special appeal – with a lake, bank side views, it feels private and secluded lending to its special encompassing atmosphere. In turn, the warmth of the welcome makes everyone want to partake….

The enthusiasm of the bands who play is unmatched…none of them want to leave once their set is finished…from Hard Fi to The Noisettes to the quirky Mayor McCa…all were enthused by the madness that is SGP. With an additional stage this year, plus 2 more…the festival offers a range of music for all music fans.

The first 500 'early birds' will get discounted tickets, as is our wont. After that tickets will revert to full price.

As a sample of the smorgasbord of talent. Check ….The Chalets Holly Golightly, Utah Saints, Howling Bells, Larrakin Love, Prince Buster, Atomic Hooligan, The Real Tuesday Weld, Robots In Disguise to name a few.

There is an optional £2 donation box – this is for the local primary school, who are trying to raise funds for much a needed expansion. The funds raised will help build a library, common room and modernized shower block. If you can please do tick the box, as the continuation of the primary school is vital to the local community. (And our support of the local community is vital to the continuation of the Garden Party!)
