Secret Garden Party 2017 guide

This great UK summer festival pairs hippy hedonism with rural bliss

By Alexandra Gerrity

First things first: when is Secret Garden Party 2017?

It takes place from Thursday July 20–Sunday July 23 in Abbots Ripton, near Cambridge.

Who’s on the Secret Garden Party line-up?

Crystal Fighters, Metronomy, Toots & The Maytals, Peaches, Ray BLK, Jagwar Ma, Rejjie Snow, Tom Misch, Kate Nash, Jorja Smith, Deap Vally, Pumarosa, Let's Eat Grandma and loads more fun and vaguely leftfield names.

What’s the vibe?

Secret Garden Party is a lakeside lucid dream for the closet hippie, complete with rolling hills. It’s not just about the music: whether you want to join a dance troupe, chug chai lattes or feed your pyromania at the annual effigy burning, ‘spectacular’ comes as standard. Bands, DJs and artists are tucked into every nook and cranny around the site including tree houses, islands, and yurts. It’s not too far for to schlep for a weekend getaway, so start stockpiling feathers and face paint now.

How can I get Secret Garden Party tickets?

Get your festival tickets here. A weekend ticket is £190. There’s also a £10 litter bond.

Anything else I should know?

SGP is known for being a woodland fairytale, but this year’s theme – a tongue-in-cheek celebration of all things celebrity – should see SGP's always up-for-it dressers take things to new heights of tacky and LOL.
