Secret Garden Party festival 2011 in photos

  • Secret Garden Party took place over the weekend (July 22 - 24) in Huntingdon, England. Still a young festival (having only started in 2004), it attracted the likes of Blondie, Guillemots, Mystery Jets, Slow Club and YACHT. Take a look at some gorgeous pictures from the event, in case you didn't make it down.
