Headlining this year will be the multi-sense experience of the Gorillaz Sounds System (DVJ), featuring the music of Gorillaz mixed and remixed with a full visual display, sanctioned by none other than Murdoc Niccols himself. Roland, the official VJ, controls the visual synchs and content along with DJ Kofi, visual and aural mix master extraordinaire! GSS percussionist Remi adds another layer to the DJ performance with a variety of live instruments, while Pauli bangs the drums, no mean feat.

Joining the Gorillaz Sound System is Marina & The Diamonds with one of their few festival appearances, an act tipped by almost every new music pundit from corner to corner of Britain. Mercury Rev, the critically acclaimed winner of NME best album, will make an incredibly rare appearance at a UK festival. They will be joined by ska legends Skatalites and Secret Garden Party’s debut signing to its new record label, The Jessie Rose Trip…creating one of the most exciting and eclectic music bills the festival has ever programmed.

The 2010 Theme...

The Party is once again set to undergo a transformation, with this years theme unveiled as Fact or Fiction, tearing down the boundaries between the two assumptions.

In 2010 The Secret Garden Party will be prizing open the chinks in man’s most carefully constructed edifice; Reality. The Garden will be exploring the theories, fantasies, mysteries, legends, visions and illusions that have created a rich world between Fact and Fiction.

For artists they take inspiration from Heath Robinson, Escher and Dali; from authors and poets they look to H G Wells, Lewis Carol and Coleridge; for inventors and scientists, figures such Da Vinci, the Wright Brothers and pioneering astrophysicists.

From the past, the focus will be on the beliefs, which now seem like pure fiction, but in their day were ‘proven fact’… the edge of a flat world and the riches of alchemy. For impossibilities of our own world the festival will be exploring urban legends, magic and illusion, geographical twilight zones, conspiracies and mysteries; areas of our culture which defy explanation.

Tickets for 2010 are on sale at £142 + booking fee. Campervans will be charged an additional £45 for the duration. Teen tickets for 13-17 year olds will be £115 plus booking fee, and under 13’s get in free, but will still need to secure a ticket.
