After a stellar inaugural year, this one-day boutique festival blooms again in December

The Pleasure Garden – an immersive music and arts festival that blends live music with visual art and performance – is a fairly new kid on the summer festival scene. Started in 2016, the one-day festival is filled with live music, carnival rides and boutique food and drink options. 

Topping the bill this year is Sampa the Great, the lyrically-brilliant rapper and musician whose work defies genres. She's newly relocated to Melbourne so don't miss your chance to hear hits like 'F E M A L E' live. Punters will also be keen to hear the party-drum beats of Spoonbill and the reggae-leaning R'n'B of Katchafire.

The first-round line-up is below.

Northeast Party House
Sampa the Great
Nore En Pure
Mad Professor
Haiku Hands 
Eva Lazarus
The Senegambian Jazz Band
