The Electric Gardens story goes way back! Two Aussie backpackers met in London and held a rave in their backyard which then morphed into London’s biggest electronic music festival – South West Four.
Perth’s Damian Gelle and Sydney’s Anton Marmot’s backyard party in 2001 grew into a sprawling festival by 2004. To this day it attracts 70,000 people over two days across London’s Clapham Common.
After two decades in London, Gelle and Marmot returned to Sydney and made their Australian debut with the boutique electronic music festival Electric Gardens held in the stunning Centennial Parklands with four giant arenas featuring the crème de la crème from the electronic music world.
“Electric Gardens will provide the most memorable occasion of your whole summer…the event continues to attract an eclectic crowd whose sole goal is to enjoy themselves to live performances of dance music’s finest.” – The Plus Ones
In previous years, the Gardens have brought out some mammoth names, including Fatboy Slim, Eric Prydz / Cirez D, Armand Van Helden, Jamie Jones, Basement Jaxx, Sasha, John Digweed, MK, Gorgon City, Dubfire, Nicole Moudaber, Mark Knight, Paul van Dyk and many more. Fiercely independent, Electric Gardens curates quality over quantity at all times.
Electric Gardens has also previously featured in other territories such as Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and even New Zealand. In 2020 we celebrate the 5th Anniversary at the festival’s spiritual home at Centennial Parklands.
