The venue for this year's Garden Party is Canvas Yard, a brand new cultural collaboration between Moda Living and New Citizens at the largest open-air events space in Leeds City Centre. It is a dedicated event space in the heart of the city that will be transformed with cutting edge audio-visual production and a powerful sound system to deliver the perfect soundtrack. This event is part of a series including Hacienda Open Air in April and a Defected showcase in May. It is a perfect place for the iconic Garden Party to expand, which it does this year with the addition of an all new stage as well as an array of tasty eats and drinks in the food village and a relaxing chill out area.
Says Director Matt Long, "We’ve been hosting The Garden Party across the city for the last 17 years making it the longest running electronic music festival in Leeds. Seeing it go from strength to strength each year has been incredible and this year we're going even bigger with three stages which will allow us to widen our musical spectrum even further. Everything is set to make it another huge year of The Garden Party!"
This year the Party welcomes some brand new faces including thrilling 140bpm talent Sherelle with her blistering array of club beats, Rhythm Section founder and local lad turned international influencer Bradley Zero, and Barry Can’t Swim, a Ninja Tune artist with a skilfully crafted electronic sound mix with jazz inspired strings and keys.
Garden Party favourites such as Skream, Paul Woolford (and his Special Request alias) and Mella Dee will do their usual and tear the place down with a barrage of big house, bass and techno tunes and also playing are the likes of 2022 summer anthem makers and UK chart toppers LF System, disco kingpin Todd Terje, NTS and Dekmantel man Palms Trax and Bristol's famous garage crew Dr Banana, Drumcode's rolling techno titan Alan Fitzpatrick, the edgy experimental techno of Daniel Avery plus many more.
This is an epic new chapter in the history of The Garden Party. Do not miss it.
