After a fantastically well received inaugural year Electric Garden Festival is returning for a second round in 2017! The festival was only held in Sydney last year but the organisers have chosen to expand this year to include Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth as well. The festival takes place on the Australia day weekend and is the perfect way to celebrate all things Australian!
Electric Gardens will kick off this year in Melbourne on the 26th January 2017 with the Swedish mastermind Eric Prydz headlining. This will all be taking place the Monnee Valley Racecourse; an ideal location to kick start the festival. The Sydney branch of the Festival will take place in the dreamy surroundings of the city’s centennial park on the 28th January 2017. Eric Prydz is truly one of the most in demand DJ’s on the planet at the moment, having already sold out venues like Madison Square Garden, Brixton Academy and Alexandra Palace – have no doubts that this man can put on quite the show. It will also be the first time he has played on Australian soil since his 2016 appearance at Future Festival.
A host of musical names will be joining Eric on these four days of partying across the country with Jamie Jones, Mark Night and Sasha – to name just a few. Basement Jaxx have also announced they will be playing a very special DJ set that you won’t want to miss.
Electric Gardens is quite literally the perfect way to spend your Australia Day weekend this coming year. Celebrate music, culture and art with longer lasting sets than any other festival in Australia this year. The festivals ethos is to provide longer lasting sets and with a line up like this you’ll be sure to get your desired music fix this Australia Day weekend.
