This New Years’ Eve we welcome you to Midnight in the Garden of Fruity Delights, as we illuminate the darkness and unlock the gates to our lost neon wonderland. Be entwined in fluorescent vines, seduced by the glow of carnivorous flowers, and tempted by mysterious forest-dwelling beauties.
The Neon Garden invites you to go deep into the evolutionary revolutionary wild earth. Put down roots and unfurl your staymen. Bloom into the bioluminescence at the end of the garden path. Ripen into the discovery of the sparkling creatures of Lesbos and Gaydens. Follow the fireflies to the heart of the labyrinth and don’t be afraid to chase that gayglo radiance beyond the garden wall.
Our wild arcadia welcomes luminous passionflowers, psychedelic moth-beings, luscious queer garden sprites and that iridescent glow that only you can capture (or will it capture you?).
Come to our hothouse of phosphorescent delectation and dare to neon-dream your way into a nubile new year.

How to Book Camping: NEW 2017 Camping Set Up [CLOSED]

After unprecedented demand for camping in 2016 we are introducing a new simplified camping booking process. This year all camping must be pre-booked online due to capacity restraints.

To secure your spot simply purchase separate camping tickets using the link provided after you have purchased your party tickets. After completing the purchase of your party tickets, you will be provided with a link to a private event, where you can purchase camping for each person for whom a ticket has been bought.  

There is no longer the need to book on a ‘per night’ rate, with 5 ticket options now available to choose from based on date of arrival. All tickets include camping for 1 person in either a tent or van from the date of arrival with check out any time before the campsite closes on 3rd January. 


Camping ticket sales will remain open until 31 December or until capacity is reached. We strongly advise booking early to avoid missing out.

This is a GLBTI+ 18+ Event. NO ID = NO ENTRY.
