Secret Garden Drops 2018 Line-up

The annual “party in the forest”, Secret Garden festival, has finally announced its line-up for 2018. DZ Deathrays, Ecca Vandal, LANKS and Alex the Astronaut are just some of the acts that will be making the journey to south-western Sydney on 23 & 24 February. Triple J Unearthed darling Stella Donnelly will also be there to captivate the crowd with her devastatingly honest lyrics, while indie duo Holy Holy will be centre-stage with their atmospheric rock on Friday night. For those needing their electronic fix, Paces is sure to get you sorted with his tasty beats.

Now in its tenth year, the festival will also continue to bring lots of entertainment beyond the music, from drag queens to a seated theatre program. As is tradition, the Friday night of the festival is an event-wide fancy-dress theme, with this year’s theme throwing it back to your Year 10 Formal. There’s even an 11-piece Blink 182 cover band, Bris 182, to make reliving your teens as authentic as possible. Other delights include an aluminium hat making class (and parade), Ghost-E-OKE, and an event called Pre’s & Afters at Bec’s. There’s also a rave cave, which I personally believe is a staple at any good festival.

Sound good? Unfortunately Secret Garden is completely sold out for 2018, with all tickets selling before the line-up dropped. With this year’s instalment proving that the early bird truly does get the worm, be sure to keep an eye out for tickets in 2019.
