The Pleasure Garden returns for its sophomore run on December 9, painting St Kilda's Catani Gardens with colour, art installations, roving performers and, of course, some huge beats.

A heady mix of Rainbow Serpent, Glastonbury and every other time you've had an impromptu sweaty day dance party with your mates (costumes mandatory), the festival, though only in its second year, knows exactly what it's doing. The brainchild of organisers who've worked the festival circuit both here and overseas for years, for starters, their line-up is solid: Remi, Montaigne, Baker Boy and Fat Freddy's Drop are part of the eclectic mix. Think dub and bass with a smattering of pop.

And once you've flailed around to Remi and itched in your costume for a while, there'll be plenty to revive your sweaty self; Toasta, Sparrow's Philly Cheesesteaks and Franklin's Classic American Hotdogs (plus vego options) are on the menu, so you can roam around and check out the art installations and hula hoop performers while thinking about what you want to line your tummy with. FYI, there's also a kombucha truck if you're feeling like you've overindulged and want to regain a bit of body equilibrium (we guess).
