Metronomy, Deap Vally, Jagwar Ma for Secret Garden Party 2017

The theme is ‘Sweet Dreams… Are Made of These?’, apparently.

The first names have been revealed for Secret Garden Party 2017 - with ‘we’re not going on tour’ faves Metronomy headlining the event.

They’re returning to the event for the first time since ‘Summer ’08’ - literally - Joe Mount saying in a press release: “The last time we played Secret Garden Party was in 2008, for one reason or another we don’t remember it very well… I do however have vague memories of Oscar shouting obscenities repeatedly at a saxophonist and by the end of the night they were very close friends, what more can I say? We can’t wait to come back and create further bonds within the horn playing community.”

Deap Vally, Jagwar Ma and Honne are also among the acts confirmed, with Toots & the Maytals another headliner. The full list of acts playing so far is:

Toots & The Maytals
Jagwar Ma
Jeremy Loops
Rejig Snow
Tom Misch
Deap Vally
Zak Abel
Etta Bond
Let’s Eat Grandma

Secret Garden Party 2017 takes place between 20th and 23rd July near Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire. Tickets are on sale now.
