What’s new for 2013?

The Secret Garden Party has announced some new and exciting things for the Garden in 2013. The Garden’s favourite stages returning for 2013 include the spellbinding Where the Wild Things Are, a mysterious, twisted area entangled in the finest new music; The Living Room – this will be home to intimate acoustic sets from some of the best singer/ songwriters in the land. The Rumba Rum Bar, back by popular demand to bring you lashings of Ska, Latino and Reggae, and the scandalous Crossroads, showcasing the best rhythm & blues, soul and Americana, will once again be unleashing it’s voodoo magic on Gardeners this summer. This year’s theme, ‘superstition’ brings the Black Cat Bar, which will be offering up the very finest of cabaret & cocktails, into the seductive spotlight. The reviving Sanctuary area will itself be reimagined and revived this year. As well as offering a whole host of therapies and massage, Gardeners will be able to immerse themselves into a beautiful world of chill out vibes, rhythms and sunset sessions.

Each year the Secret Garden Party’s intellectual platform, Secret Forum, plays host to some of the greatest minds and speakers in the country. This year we are very proud to announce just a few of the brilliant thinkers who will be enriching and stimulating Gardeners this summer David Icke, Jonathan Cainer, Prof David Nutt, The British Humanist Association, Reverend Billy Talen & The Stop Shopping Gospel Choir and more to be announced soon.

One of the garden’s wonders is the Secret Emporium – it’s The Secret Garden Party’s favourite place to acquire off the hook incredible, costume inspired fashion and accessories. The Secret Emporium has been invited to stage a 10-DAY POP UP at Boxpark Shoreditch, 15th – 24th March. Twenty of the very best independent designers have been especially chosen to showcase their new collections. The pop-up will take place in a hand-curated space hosted by Secret Emporium across 3 adjoining retail units.
