Secret Garden Party 2014 – This is a Serious Party… Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
Now in it’s 12th year, Secret Garden Party 2014 is no longer a secret, it’s in fact one of the best open secrets across the festival season. The Goodbye Yellow Brick Road themed festival takes place July 24th – 27th at the stunning location of Abbots Ripton, in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire.
If there was ever a perfect fit for our Enchanted Forest Taxi photo booth, the weird, wonderful, hedonistic Secret Garden Party may well be just that. Forest wonderlands, hidden miniature worlds, Haybale fortress, a tree trunk stage, a lake stage that can only be accessed by boat and the most abstract of art installations are just some of the ingredients for a weekend filled with all kinds of debauchery.
Secret Garden Party has always been known for the alternative option to the mainstream music festivals, however the line up this year is one of the festivals finest since it’s inception back in 2003. Little Dragon, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Clean Bandit and Hip Hop legends Public Enemy are just some of the names that will be gracing their main stage, ‘The Great Stage’, this year. Even so, Secret Garden will keep the 25,000 or so festival revelers on the toes as they have no shortage of secret stages and secret special guests slots across the weekend.
A couple of notable events we’ve seen at Secret Garden Party this year is there campaign to get people to travel by art bike, or fancy dress costume in a 30-mile not the-Tour-de-France – Yellow Brick Art Bike Rally and the Village Hall for couples to get hitched at the Festival.
You can come on a whimsical journey through our enchanted forest in The Secret Salon. Returning this year the “Absolutely Iconic” – an immersive styling experience at the Secret Salon is the perfect escape for some much needed festival grooming or short detox. The salon offers an all manner of beauty treatments including hair cuts, manicures and pedicures, beard trims, facials, tanning, waxing and many more.
Each day of the festival the salon will host a unique menu dedicated to a different era in time. From classic 50s and 60s Motown to 70s Disco Divas to the classic 80s perm, our taxi photo booth will be there ready to snap all the visitors to the Secret Salon after they’ve been done up to the nines and before they paint the festival red, or for this year, yellow to match the theme, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.
As a special secret treat for visitors we’ve come up with a ‘serious’ secret word for you to get free photos every time you visit our photo booth. Just whisper the word to one of the Megabooth staff and start your journey through our very own enchanted forest. Watch out for hints in Twitter, each day there will be a new secret code word. See you there!
