Woodland fairytale-meets-hippy hedonism-meets-boutique chic-meets-forest rave styles – Secret Garden Party has a lot going on and pulls it off rather spectacularly. There's plenty of wide-ranging music to be heard, with various bohemian bands and hip DJs playing in treehouses, but as with Glasto there are numerous other galaxies of fun to be had elsewhere around the vast site, with workshops, theatre, installations and 'action camps' (thankfully nothing like boot camps or fat camps) all making up the weekend that you'll forget most of anyway, such is its rep for debauchery. This year's theme is 'Superstition', so don't be alarmed if you find skin-tight catsuit-clad revellers crossing your path. Or the entire festival dressed as Stevie Wonder.
