The Secret Garden Party organisers made this statement: "Sickened by commercial gigolos and the false promise of fame and Fortune achievable only through wearing the right deodorant? Well then, join us in saying "Goodbye (to the) Yellow Brick Road" and its promise of (social/financial) redemption. Within the shelter of the Garden, where the dogs of society's howl is inaudible, we are exploring the more positive visual imagery in our favourite songs - so dust off your old LPs say an oh my and a boo hoo to the 9 to 5…   Dance with us beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free; because, in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make."

Alongside the new thematic news, Secret Garden Party have also announced Max Raabe & Palast Orchester as their first act for 2014. Commissioned to give their rather unique take on the original 1930s rave culture scene.

Held annually at Mill Hill Field in Abbots Ripton, Cambridgeshire, Secret Garden Party has long held a reputation as being one of the wildest, experiential festivals in Europe and prides itself on not just its music programme but also arts and 'sight-seeing' activities.

The festival invites 'Gardeners' to take part in pastimes like mud wrestling, paint fights, dance off battles, badger dating, naked trampolining, fire shows, gentrified croquet, Miss Dance workshops, life drawing, wood fired hot tubs and saunas, black cat cabaret and poetry slams, and much more besides.

Early bird Secret Garden Party weekend tickets for adults have now sold out but general admission tickets, priced at £180.50 (including booking fee) are available now. Teen tickets (13-17 years old) are priced at £135 with booking fee and three varying instalment plans are available for adult tickets, with full payment due at the latest by May 2014. Anyone 12 and under goes free.
