Secret Garden Party – Wikipedia

The Secret Garden Party, often colloquially shortened to SGP, was an annual independent arts and music festival which took place in Abbots Ripton near Huntingdon in England. This location is on part of the grounds of a Georgian farm house and has its own lakes, river and landscaped gardens. The festival was launched by Fred Fellowes [1] and James Whewell in 2004 as an alternative to the established mainstream music festivals. Since its inception the festival has increased in popularity and size,[2] and has grown from one stage and 1,000 visitors in 2004, to more than 15 stages and 26,000 revellers in 2011.

In March 2017, it was announced that the 2017 edition would be the last.[3]
