The Garden Party

Most people are not inspired by a vacant car park, but Melbourne-based design duo Tim & Alix are not most people. The young design team was selected to create their version of a garden for the outdoor music festival, The Garden Party. Putting aside images of English tea gardens and exotic botanicals, the duo created a space that hits a little closer to home.

“We went with the idea of a suburban garden party, the kind of garden that Tim and I both knew growing up” says Alix Smith. “The site was so urban we wanted to create something that would really contrast that scene.”

Located behind the Melbourne Recital Centre, The Garden Party has been blooming over the past three weekends. Indie tunes, street art, tasty treats and good times lead us into the fourth and final weekend of the music festival that’s proved to be pleasantly different.

Lock in for the much-anticipated sounds of some of the biggest names in Australian and international indie, electro and soul music while surrounded by gnomes, flamingos, astroturf and the surreal appearance of tree lined streets.

Grab your tickets, sit back, relax and enjoy suburbia as festival goers can expect the sweet sounds of Jens Lekman, Courtney Barnett, Bertie Blackman and Oh Mercy to name a few.

The Garden Party is located behind the Melbourne Recital Centre and runs from Fri 15 – Sun 17 Feb.

It almost sounds like the premise of a reality TV show: pile a bunch of artists in a bus for seven days, send them across Mexico and see what happens.
