Secret Garden Party have announced their first wave of artists for 2017.

Metronomy and legendary reggae artist Toots & the Maytals are now confirmed as two of the headliners for Secret Garden Party next July 20-23 near Huntingdon. Also confirmed are Honne, Jagwar Ma, Jeremy Loops, Rejjie Snow, Tom Misch, Akala, Deap Vally, Ray Blk, Zak Abel, Etta Bond, Let’s Eat Grandma and Anteros.

Metronomy make a welcome return to their spiritual home in the Garden, having first played in 2008. Coincidentally, this was the very year that inspired main man Joe Mount to write his latest album, ‘Summer ’08,’ the summer he says it all began. Metronomy’s latest single, ‘Hang Me Out To Dry,’ features singer/producer Robyn with remixes by Seven Davis JR, KDA and SGP favourites Waze & Odyssey, one of whom programmes the much adored Pagoda stage each year in the Garden.

Joe recalls : “The last time we played Secret Garden Party was in 2008, for one reason or another we don’t remember it very well… I do however have vague memories of Oscar shouting obscenities repeatedly at a saxophonist and by the end of the night they were very close friends, what more can I say? We can’t wait to come back and create further bonds within the horn playing community”

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
