Theme Announced for the 10th Secret Garden Party

Secret Garden Party have unveiled is theme for 2012's 10th birthday celebrations.

The Secret Garden Party’s Arts & Expression theme for 2012 will be: Standing On Ceremony’
This year, as The Garden celebrates her 10th Birthday, we explore those ceremonies, rituals, initiations, anniversaries and carnivals that bind us together, that emphasize matter over mind, that emphasise our true gifts as humans: social existence.

So get your thinking caps on. Dream your own anniversaries, your own ceremonies, your own initiations. Don’t be a spectator, don’t be part of a passive congregation. Create gatherings and parties that breakdown the walls of inhibition, shyness, the other, the stranger. We are already naked, so use your freedom to unite with your fellow Gardener. 2012 is not the end of it all – it is merely a rallying call to unite, to come together, to reinforce the ties that bind.
In 2011, installation artists witnessed more festivalgoers than ever before spending more time on, around or in their artworks, and every nook and cranny of the festival site was exploding with art installations, spectacular performance and absurd happenings. There were over 50 art installations, over 30 participatory action camps, and countless performances, all woven between the 17 arenas & stages showcasing over 350 bands across 4 days. 2012 promises to do even better.
