Since 2011 we have worked year-on-year with Secret Garden Party, and in 2017 we were honoured to be a part of their last ever event.


This year we were brought in to provide sound, lighting, projection and/or LED across 5 stages: The Pagoda, The Labyrinth, The Lost Woods, The Colosillyum and the Jack Dawes bar.


Using our expertise in sound management, we’ve successfully taken over and enhanced production of several stages at Secret Garden Party. Problems that had arisen with noise complaints and sound bleeds between stages in pre-Vortex years were swiftly rectified: our incredible teams’ experience, knowledge and first-class equipment were able to effectively minimise all previously flagged issues to help contribute to the awesome overall experience!

We’ve had an amazing time with Secret Garden Party over the years: here’s hoping for a come back in the future…!

“Vortex have time and again proven themselves to be uniquely brilliant. Genuinely creative and original use of technology is hard to come by. Rarely do you find it coupled with real knowledge, thorough pre-production and a great on site crew. If we ever need something out of the ordinary or challenging Vortex are the first people I call.”Peter Tilling, Secret Garden Party
