Electric Gardens Festival is music event that takes place annually around Australia Day on January 26 (between late January and early February) across four states and in New Zealand. An independent boutique music festival features best artists from the electronic music world. Electric Gardens flagship event in Centennial Parklands of Sydney reminds of massive European summer music fests. The 10-hour concerts are surrounded by botanical gardens near Sydney’s Opera House. Four large stages among beautiful settings attract about 11,000 people every year.
Electric Gardens Festival celebrates everything about the Australian summer with eclectic lineups that include Aussie stars and world-class musicians like Fat Boy Slim, Armand Van Helden, UK DJ duo Gibbon and Matt Robson-Scott, Detroit techno king MK, Eric Prydz, Hernan Cattaneo, Jamie Jones, Gorgon City, Dubfire, Nicole Moudaber, and Mark Knight.
The Electric Gardens started from Perth’s Damian Gelle and Sydney’s Anton Marmot’s backyard party in 2001 that evolved into a brand new music festival in 2004, that was first held in the UK. Then Electric Gardens with its founders returned to Australia to become one of the most memorable occasions of Australian summer.
