The Pleasure Garden Horticultural Society is thrilled to welcome you to Wonderland on Saturday 8 December 2018 on the St Kilda Foreshore! The 3rd edition!
Returning to Catani Gardens, St Kilda, The Pleasure Garden’s ‘Welcome to Wonderland’ edition will conjure an inner-city Eden of audible, visual and edible delights for the festival’s third installment this summer.
Gardeners will be treated to a totally immersive music and arts experience. Mingle with mischievous roving performers, discover sweet beats from a diverse range of musicians and sonic selectors, and kick back and enjoy fine food and killer cocktails in a palm-fringed party paradise.
The Garden will bloom to the tune of 5 distinctive and immersive arenas, each one playing host to a carefully curated selection of artists.
The garden’s CONSERVATORY STAGE is where you’ll hear iconic anthems from The Temper Trap, the soulful storytelling tunes of Xavier Rudd and the incredible reggae, roots and funk fusion of Katchafire. Or get down to the infectious grooves of Confidence Man, Northeast Party House and a host of others.
Bear witness to the AURORA STAGE, where you can take in the dense lyrical mazes of Sampa the Great, dive into the funky depths of Stickybuds, witness mashup master A.Skillz, and experience the reggae and bass manipulating master Mista Savona.
Or dig your toes into the sand (on an actual beach) and turn up the heat at The Pleasure Garden’s inaugural BEACH CLUB. Headed up by deep house queen Nora En Pure, Gardeners can dance as the sun sinks into the ocean with sounds from Harvey Sutherland, Andee Frost and Casey Leaver. Stay tuned for more info about this new space, a Melbourne first.
Out of the underground and into the Garden, head to the HOUSE PARTY stage for some serious wall-shaking, foot-stomping goodness from the likes of Uone & Western, Jamie Stevens and Spacey Space.
Grab a one-way ticket to all your reggaeton, dancehall, dub and drum & bass dreams at the BASS STATION. Here you can witness a master at work and the guru of tech-dub Mad Professor, take off into K+Lab’s ever-expanding galaxy of funk, or get glitchy with Staunch.
Alongside the music, Gardeners can mingle with mischievous roving performers, take in monumental art installations, discover artisan market stalls, and kick back and enjoy fine food and decadent cocktails in a palm-fringed party paradise curated all for you.
