This year is the last ever Secret Garden Party — and it’s time to wave the festival goodbye. The party organizers have promised a more epic festival than ever and this year’s ultimate lineup includes the likes of Metronomy, Crystal Fighters and Kate Nash. Here are our top tips for the Secret Garden Party weekend.

1. Think before you drive

Party organizers want to keep the event as green as possible. Festival goers are encouraged to ride-share or use public transport.

2. Ride-share

Use GoCarShare to link up with other festival goers and ride share. It’s good for the environment, plus it will give you a Secret Garden Party Green Pass that gets you discounts during the festival.

3. Embrace your inner Kimmy K

This year’s theme is a celebrity ‘VIP LOL-OFF’ — so come with your best Kim Kardashian or reality TV outfit.

4. Bring ID

You’ll need ID at the gates to get into the festival. Each ticket will be individually named and you can change the name on the ticket up to one week before the event.

5. Car parking

If you come in a car, parking is $25 in advance or $40 on the festival day. Purchase a Secret Garden Party Parking Pass.

6. Opening times

Gates open on Thursday, July 20 at  12 pm.
