Fat Freddy’s Drop headlines The Pleasure Garden

The Pleasure Garden today announces its first round of artists, headed by New Zealand dub powerhouse Fat Freddy’s Drop in their only Victorian performance for the year.

On Saturday December 9, this boutique festival will see the Catani Gardens on St Kilda’s foreshore transform to create a collision of world-class music and immersive theatrical splendour.

Fat Freddy’s Drop will be joined by bass groovemeister Opiuo, Triple J darling and alt-pop princess Montaigne, hip-hop heartthrob Remi, Canadian bass and breaks party pilot Stickybuds, piratical gypsy folk favourites 8 Foot Felix, alongside Willaris.K, Mz Rizk, Rachel By The Stream and L-Fresh The Lion with more to be announced later in the year.

This year’s Pleasure Garden also sees the addition of two new music arenas – Bass Station featuring bass, dub, and more on the Heartical HiPowa Soundsystem, and featuring artists such as Chant Down Sound, JPS, Lickweed, Monkee & C:1 + Dyzlexic and Mama Wonkita. Woo hoo!

To top it off, an expanded art and theatrical performance program will mean that this year’s Pleasure Garden will be even wilder and more immersive than ever before.

With a history of recreation, relaxation and pleasure-seeking stretching back over a century, The Pleasure Garden will be the perfect setting for the festival.

Save the date kids!!
