The Kelburn Garden Party is an intimate affair set in a magical environment (the site of the Graffiti Project), with the area around the Castle is populated with site specific artworks, installation-strewn adventures, nomadic musical performances and physical theatre that are as much a key to the event as the main musical programme. The main stage is set on a natural lawn surrounded by ancient trees and under the gaze of the surreally painted Kelburn Castle, and all free of corporate interference.
