This year the Secret Garden will be asking festival to join in with exploring their affinity to the supernatural, the inexplicable and the irrational... to indulge the tussle between the left brain's sober analysis and the right's need to conjure it's own reality. The Garden Party relies on the audience participation to rejuvenate and regenerate each year.

As well as music there's loads of activities for kids and adults alike, and this event is more of a party experience with naked trampolining, mud wrestling, paint fights, giant parades, gifting ceremonies, dance off battles, badger dating, fire shows, Miss Behaves mess tent, theatre of dolls, human guess who, gentrified croquet, Miss Dance workshops, life drawing, aerial displays, death defying circus, spell casting, tax deductible theatre, gypsy disco, wood fired hot tubs and sauna, meditation with headspace, fine dining, black cat cabaret, poetry slam, debates and discussions, potion making, extreme science experiments, Pagoda, Yacht Club, ghost stories, apocalypse survival school, the kissing den, and a naked pool of wonder.
