Now in their 16th year, The Garden Party will take over a brand new, never before used city centre venue, soon to be revealed.

Since starting in 2006 The Garden Party has had many transformations over the years, from their beginnings in The Faversham, to their beloved venue Canal Mills, they’re huge tenth birthday celebrations at The Tetley and finally to their fully outdoor venue on Globe Road last year. Though they’ve had many changes, this is their biggest glow up yet.

Not only is The Garden Party amping up their venue, but with more space comes more stages. This new exclusive venue will allow The Garden Party to offer even more to its customers, including the introduction of two main stages, completely outdoor for those sunny Garden Party days.

Saturday 30th April – Sunday 1st May: Pencil it in your diaries!

For one weekend and one weekend only in 2022 The Garden Party will span across the May Bank Holiday, running from Saturday 30th April – Sunday 1st May.

The winter months have been going on far too long so The Garden Party is bringing summer forward a couple of weeks. Expect the bank holiday weekend to go off with 24 huge acts, including big names such as Jon Hopkins, Hot Since 82, Denis Sulta, Skream and so many more! They’ll also have a variety of food and drink offerings on site to keep you going for the whole weekend.

After a sell out weekend last year and their venue and line up announcements on the horizon, we’re expecting to see huge excitement surrounding the festival in the coming weeks.

“We’re so excited to be back for our 16th year of The Garden Party Leeds. Our reopening last year after lock down was a huge hit and the welcome back we all needed. It seemed like it was going to be hard to top, but this year we’ve gone even bigger and better event. One weekend, a brand new never before used city centre venue, and the biggest line up we’ve ever produced”Matt Long, Director of New Citizens

Located in the city centre, The Garden Party is a 10 minute walk from Leeds train station. The venue will be announced via our social media channels in the coming weeks.
