This year’s Secret Garden Party is promising to be the best yet, so we have teamed up with the organisers to let one lucky reader be part of the summer festival with a pair of tickets to be won.
Motown star Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, hip-hop group Public Enemy and 2014 breakthrough artists Clean Bandit are just some of the top names the Abbots Ripton festival has attracted for the four-day event in July.
The Secret Garden Party, held in Lord de Ramsey’s grounds and organised by his son Fred Fellowes, is hailed as one of the top festivals in the UK with Faithless, Disclosure, 2ManyDJs and Regina Spektor all stealing the show at last year’s spectacular.
Also taking to the many stages in 2014 will be Northern Indie soul artist Bipolar Sunshine, reggae DJ David Rodigan, New Zealand seven-piece band Fat Freddy’s Drop, London trio Teleman, rock band The Ramona Flowers and Australian psychedelic dance band Jagwar Ma.
Rising star Louisa Rose Allen, better known as Foxes, will perform on the main stage along with perennial Secret Garden Party act The Correspondents, Little Dragon and Max Raabe and Palast Orchester.
It is not just the music that attracts 21,000 revellers to Huntingdonshire, there are many sideshows – from sheep racing, debates, water slides, funfair, science experiments, silent disco, mud sports, and numerous themed parades.
The organisers have teamed up with The Hunts Post to offer a pair of tickets to this year’s festival, which takes place from July 24 to 27.
To be in with a chance of winning, just tell us Foxes’ real name. Send your entries, along with your name, age, address and daytime telephone number, to firstname.lastname@example.org, with Secret Garden Party in the subject box before June 11. Over 18s only. Usual Archant rules apply.
