Electric Gardens Festival returns to Australia in 2018, kick off in Perth at Red Hill Auditorium on 19 January 2018. It will be their biggest endeavour yet, with more artists on their line-up than ever before. As a festival, Electric Gardens is widely regarded by electronic music fans, thanks to the directors’ careful curation skills when it comes to their line-up. Electric Gardens channels the park-based electronica popularised by Parklife, Summadayze, and Listen Out, but goes one step further by steering clear of trend-dependent acts, and instead inviting the absolute godfathers of electronic music to step up to the plates – seasoned artists that have spent decades entertaining crowds, and know exactly how to make them tick. Fans can expect the forthcoming artist announcement to contain a major line-up of the type of global legends we’ve come to expect of Electric Gardens’ programming. A ticket to Electric Gardens also provides the key to experience sets from many leading lights in the world of contemporary underground tech, house and electronic artists – all of whom are allocated generous set time lengths by the Electric Gardens team, to perform to their fullest abilities, and craft a quality music journey – the full, European-style clubbing experience that Australian fans are treated to so rarely, and crave so dearly. The 2018 event will see a significant expansion of local artists, with Electric Gardens once again teaming up with the best electronic collectives, media platforms, and brands for a truly collaborative curational effort that goes to the heart of dance music’s sense of togetherness. For the first time, the popular VIP section will expand to be a general public offering, taking up a newly-constructed space facing the main stage. The festivals will offer educational areas, where interested punters can learn from pro’s the basics of mixing electronic music. Electric Gardens will begin its 2018 journey on 19 January at Red Hill Auditorium – a stunning natural amphitheater in the bush, curtained by huge gum trees, with views of the Perth city skyline, and as night falls, a ceiling of stars.
