Head Gardener and programmer Fred Fellowes says:
‘Every couple of years it seems that music bubbles up an endless host of new wonders in a relatively short space of time. In such a moment as this, we feel incredibly honoured to be hosting so many of these incredible new bands at the Garden Party. When added to the amazing new site works I really just can’t wait for this year’s SGP.’

Famed for their immersive live shows and pioneering use of multimedia Belgian brothers David and Stephen Dewaele aka. Soulwax are confirmed as headliners for this year’s Garden Party.  In the decade since they released the ground-breaking compilation ‘As Heard on Radio Soulwax Pt. 2’  (under their 2ManyDJ’s moniker) they've established themselves as one of the world’s top electronic acts.

London (via Edinburgh) quartet Django Django enjoyed an incredible 2012 last year, culminating in a Barclaycard Mercury Prize nomination for their eponymous debut album as well as picking up the hallowed ‘Best New Act’ gong at the Q Awards in October.

Having sold out two UK tours already it’s hard to believe that Bastille are yet to release an album. Their debut long-player ‘Bad Blood’ drops on March 4th and is one of the most eagerly anticipated releases of the year.

Hailing from Cavan in Ireland The Strypes are a group of 16-17yr-olds with a penchant for all things rhythm and blues. Having recently signed to Mercury Records and Elton John’s Management company they can count Noel Gallagher, Paul Weller and Carl Barat amongst their rapidly growing legion of fans. The NME have named them as one of their most hotly tipped bands.

NEW FOR 2013
For 2013 the Garden’s beloved Artful Badgers have been given their very own new landscaped Amphitheatre to frolic in.  This will be a dedicated space for feral theatre and games throughout the day and at night will be transformed into a space full of wild gatherings, ceremonies and ferocious celebrations. There will be new aerial walkways throughout these enchanted woodlands so that Gardeners can take a leisurely stroll amongst the towering trees - and spy on fellow Gardeners below.

This year’s theme, ‘superstition’ brings the Black Cat Bar, which will be offering up the very finest of cabaret and cocktails, into the seductive spotlight.

The Garden’s legendary Pagoda Stage will see further improvements for 2013. Along with a crème de la crème line-up of surprise guest DJs, this will include the new nearby Yacht Club Bar on the lakeside where Gardeners can sip on a sea breeze or take a boat out for a row. For those who have not yet witnessed the Pagoda’s infamous allure, expect to be completely hypnotised by its magic this summer.
