Sydney’s secret-but-not-so-secret forest festival Secret Garden have finally let the cat out of the bag – the lineup for 2017 is here and it’s pretty bloody huge.
Secret Garden has just dropped their 2017 lineup of sonic and visual delights, plus a few cheeky surpirses, as per usual. Got your tickets?
Returning once again to the 300o acre Downes Family Farm on the outskirts of Sydney in late February, Secret Garden 2017 is brimming with Aussie favourites, as well as the usual cornucopia of visual delights and oddities that really the make festival its own.
Topping the bill are The Jezabels, Urthboy, Alex Lahey, Gretta Ray, Japanese Wallpaper, MOSSY, Bec Sandridge and B Wise – plus an act called Birdman or The Unexpected Virtue of a Tony Hawk Pro Skater Band who will be covering tracks from the Tony Hawk video games (which were always bangers).
There will also be a Royal Rave dress up party on Friday night soundtracked by The Australian Queen Tribute Show, a Love Song Dedications set curated by the sophisticated lover himself, Donny Benet, and a Saturday night Campqueen takeover from Stereogamous, and a chillout lounge hosted by Shantan and Friends.
Aside from the bands there will also be 14 different dancefloors and a heap of DJs, the annual Secret Garden Olympics, art installations, comedy shows, dance classes and makeover tents.
Secret Garden is on Friday the 24th and Saturday the 25th of February, Downes Family Farm, NSW
