ELECTRIC GARDENS FESTIVAL 2016 – FESTIVAL GOERS

“Can’t praise you enough! Just awesome… The line up, food trucks, choice of drinks, toilets, crowd size and good price tix… T1000 – here is a company doing it right!”

“Amazing line up, no drink lines, minimal toilet lines, friendly staff, good quality sound (although some leakage in the Digital Therapy tent due to proximity). An incredible line up of quality underground artists that attracted a like-minded crowd. A repeat of this next year would be an absolute treasure. ;)”

ELECTRIC GARDENS FESTIVAL 2016 – MEDIA REVIEWS

“Headline act Fatboy Slim ended the day on a high, spinning through all his classics and lighting up the sky with an epic laser display. The electrifying atmosphere was contagious and the entire crowd was jumping to the beat of Fatboy Slim’s hits. I had an unforgettable time at Electric Gardens Festival, my only complaint was that the festival came to end, I was definitely not ready to leave and I am already counting down the days until next year’s event.”

“Fatboy Slim’s infectious beats beamed from his very being and kept fans in the type of trance which only comes from a really good set. He didn’t need to utter a word to say everything he needed to with his music — both figuratively and literally — and had the skill of both feeding from the crowd and controlling it at the same time”

“If there was one word that best described Fatboy Slim’s performance, it was synchronisation. Synchronisation between 52 year old Norman Cook and the audience. Synchronisation between the stunning audio-visuals. And synchronisation between the music and the electrifying atmosphere that encompassed the outdoor venue.”
Rating: *****

“I’ve been to four music festivals in Sydney now, and I can definitely say that this was by far my favorite. The organization was done really well, the production value was fantastic, and the music was loud & bumping. My only complaint is that it ended at 10:00 P.M — because the festival atmosphere was strong, and I definitely could have stayed and danced the entire night away!”

“The energy among the stages felt grungy, loose and free, and everyone appeared to be having a truly great time. All in all though, the debut of Electric Gardens proved to be a much-needed breath of fresh air, eccentricity and nostalgia.”

“In many ways, Fatboy Slim’s set signified the essence of Sydney’s Electric Garden Festival: An enjoyable, well orchestrated event with the right amount of well-trusted elements, engaging and uplifting.”

“As the line-up started being released (one name per fortnight, very clever) I began to realise that these guys had assembled a serious range of quality acts from across the globe. Fatboy Slim, Erick Morillo, Dubfire, John Digweed, Norman Jay – these were the godfathers of electronic music – seasoned artists that had spent decades entertaining crowds across all six continents, not kids with a single popular track. This was going to be good”

“The lush grasslands, hills and wide open space provided the perfect venue for the old school house and techno line-up that was present at Electric Gardens. By 4pm, most of the crowd had arrived and there was still more than enough space to dance and breathe. It felt spacious, easy and comfortable….”

“Wielding his signature power-stance fist pump, Fatboy Slim cranked out a set that satisfied a crowd spanning generations. A testament to his longevity and prowess, you can’t afford to miss him on his next visit.”
Rating: ****

“Short queues for drinks and toilets, craft beer, decent enough wine, festival food that people actually raved about (Food Trucks = Inspired), heaps of choice across the four stages and pretty quick to get around. Basically it was the best festival I’ve been to in the last six years in Sydney.”

“For someone who is 52 and has been doing this for a long time, Cook shows no signs of slowing down. The crowd was feeding off his energy and vice versa in a beautiful symbiotic relationship. The grin on his face said it all and it was so good to see.”

“Fatboy Slim juggled his signature big beat with more contemporary fare, throwing in crowd pleasers for good measure. In unison with the visual aesthetics and oversized glow-sticks that were handed out, his set created a pulsing mélange of sound and spectacle. Teasers and allusions to his hits peppered with a sheer endless stream of classics from all genres formed the foundation of his set, including an homage to the Thin White Duke – right here, queen bitch, Rebel Rebel, right now, rockafella skanking into the night.”
