The Pleasure Garden reveal first crop of artists for 2018

Are you feeling the winter chills? Here’s something to warm you up!
The Pleasure Garden Horticultural Society have planted their first crop of killer party-starters, beat-droppers and hip-hoppers for the festival’s Welcome to Wonderland edition this December.
Whether you’re grooving out to high-energy party starters Northeast Party House, taking in the dense lyrical mazes of Sampa the Great’s verses, or vibing out to the incredible reggae, roots and funk fusion of Katchafire, The Pleasure Garden is set to take you on a musical journey this December.
And this is just a taste! There’s over 40 acts set to take to the festival’s Conservatory, Aurora, Bass Station and House Party stages. A party by the seaside and under the summer sun on the lush lawns of St Kilda’s Catani Gardens.
Now in its third year, The Pleasure Garden has established itself as a mainstay in the summer festival calendar. Gardeners will be treated to a totally immersive experience thanks to carefully curated music and arts alchemy. 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.
There’s a limited bunch of Early Bird tickets up for grabs at a discounted price. Head to to get your hands on some!
