The Pleasure Garden has slowly been making a name for themselves as one of Victoria’s most unique festivals, bringing together five distinct and immersive arenas with a cavalcade of diverse artists. Keeping in line with this, they have outdone themselves this year with their full lineup announcement.
Joining the fun on the sunny seaside, and on the palm-fringed lawns of St Kilda’s Catani Gardens; The Pleasure Garden, you’ll hear iconic anthems from The Temper Trap, the soulful storytelling tunes of Xavier Rudd, the incredible reggae, roots and funk fusion of Katchafire and the infectious grooves of Confidence Man and Northeast Party House at the famous CONSERVATORY STAGE. Or get down to
Down at the AURORA STAGE, sit back and enjoy the dense lyrical mazes of Sampa the Great, dive into the funky depths of Stickybuds, witness mashup master A.Skillz, and experience the reggae and bass manipulating master Mista Savona.
This year, you’ll even be able to dig your toes into the sand with their BEACH CLUB, that will be headed up by deep house queen Nora En Pure, Gardeners can dance as the sun sinks into the ocean with sounds from Harvey Sutherland, Andee Frost and Casey Leaver. We’ll have more info on this space soon, because frankly, it sounds absolutely perfect.
Out of the underground and into the Garden, head to the HOUSE PARTY stage for some serious wall-shaking, foot-stomping goodness from the likes of Uone & Western, Jamie Stevens, Spacey Space and a special international guest!
Furthermore, for those keen on dancehall, dub and drum & bass dreams, they legends have the BASS STATION set up where you can witness a master at work and the guru of tech-dub Mad Professor, take off into K+Lab’s ever-expanding galaxy of funk, or get glitchy with Staunch.
Alongside the music, Gardeners can mingle with mischievous roving performers, take in monumental art installations, discover artisan market stalls, and kick back and enjoy fine food and decadent cocktails in a palm-fringed party paradise curated all for you.
