Grab your diary. Call your mates. Reserve your horse. Secret Garden has just announced its dates for 2019. And we're happy to tell you that Australia's beloved, grassroots, made-for-mates-by-mates festival will be taking place over 48 hours, across Friday, February 22 and Saturday, February 23.
You have less time, however, to scrape your cash together. Ticket sales kick off at 9am on Wednesday, September 12. If you're a regular gardener, you'll know that they sell out pretty damn quickly, so don't dilly dally. Good news is, though, that you can sign up for pre-sale tickets here — if you're not already.
As usual, we won't know anything about the lineup or festival program until tickets are sold out. But, we can tell you that, as always, Secret Garden will bring you an immersive experience, a long way out of the city, within a magical natural setting transformed into a wonderland. You'll find yourself wandering through a forest maze, getting lost in massive installations, discovering unexpected pop-up performances and coming across tucked-away parties in custom-made rave caves. Maybe even getting married.
All we know for sure? As always, you're invited to wear your craziest, most dressed up fancy dress. Start planning.
Secret Garden will run from February 22–23, 2019. Tickets on sale 9am Wednesday, September 12. More details on the festival's website.
