Secret Garden Party Sets Date

This year's Secret Garden Party festival has confirmed that it will be taking place for the sixth year.

No bands have yet been revealed for the the four-day music festival which takes place near Huntingdon in Cambridgeshire from July 24-27, however tickets have gone on sale today (February 1).

Festival organisers have promised an “array of the best up-and-coming artists performing alongside some bona fide legends.”

This year's Secret Garden Party theme will be exploring the Revolutions of Past, Present and Future from the physical through to the conceptual. Organisers ask that "Gardeners to stage their own revolutions, devolutions and evolutions bringing the Garden to life with parades, music, sculpture and theatre."

Last year's event saw Echo & The Bunnymen, New Young Pony Club, Isobell Campbell and Prince Buster play.
