With 12 stages, 360 artists and over 50 DJs, the music programme this year promises to be the most wide-reaching yet. More to be announced soon.

The Secret Garden Party this year is offering a £1,000 bursary through Saatchi Arts & Music to create a unique competition. Readers are invited to apply for funding by submitting a proposal by Monday 2nd May. The chosen work will be on site with thousands of viewers. There are no height, width or length restrictions and it can be placed in a unique area such as within trees, stages, fields, ponds, and lakes.

The winner will come to the site in Cambridgeshire the week before the festival to install their work. The theme for SGP 2011 is Origins and Frontiers and the work should reference this theme. Proposals need to contain a physical description, contextual reference, project footprint, break down of costs and contact details. Digital copy should be sent to, and hard copy to: Saatchi Competition, Secret Productions, United House, North Road, London N7 9DP.

The dates for The Secret Garden Party 2011 are confirmed as Thursday 21st to Sunday 24th July, and happening at Mill Hill Field, Abbots Ripton, in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire is a garden-party-gone-crazy. As well as music there's loads of activities for kids and adults alike, and it is more of a party experience than a live music festival.

In 2011 the Arts & Expression theme will be a world of origins and frontiers, sources and horizons. Through the live music, performance stages, spectacles, action camps and art installations the festival will be exploring "where we have come from and where we are going".

Tickets are on sale priced at £155 for an adult for the four days, with free tickets also available for children aged under 12. The price includes parking, and camping. Teen tickets are priced at £115. Under 12's Tickets will be available with an adult tickets and issued with a family pass, giving priority parking and access to the Family Camping field, a brand new zone for 2011. Family camping passes are priced at £20, with a campervan pass priced at £50.
