The Secret Garden Party takes place in a secret location near Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, from Thursday 26 July to Sunday 29 July. It will be the first time the festival opens its gates on Thursday evening, giving festival goers an extra night to get settled.
Organisers have once again teamed up with XFM's Eddie Temple-Morris to curate the Remix Arena. The stage will feature sets from the likes of Goose, Hextatic, Utah Saints, South Central, Does It Offend You, Yeah?, The Office, GoHomeProductions, The Head Gardener, Moneyshot and Parker and Shakes.
As well as enlargening the site and expanding its capacity to 6,000, Secret Garden Party will feature several new attractions, from the performance art 'Festival Of Fools' stage to a number of participatory Action Camps, including The Kissing Workshop and The Apres Ski Club.
This year's theme is creating 'Brave New Worlds' meaning there will be a heavy emphasis of getting involved. In fact, you can get concessions on your tickets by volunteering to take on a character - anything from a milkmade to a postman!
Tickets go on sale tomorrow (Tuesday, 17 April) priced £110 for the full four days and will be available HERE at the official site. Under 12s go free and you can may be able to buy a reduced ticket for £60 if you pledge your participatory character online.
