From 2008 to 2017, Guerilla Science took our trademark form of renegade research to the Secret Garden Party, our birthplace and spiritual home. Music, cabaret, theatres and saunas are pervasive at UK festivals – so we brought science!

Britain’s answer to Burning Man, the Secret Garden Party was the UK’s most playful, experimental and visually stunning music festival. Every year, we were joined in the Guerilla Science tent by a whole host of scientists, artists, musicians, games designers and engineers.

We explored everything from sex, drugs, and rock and roll, to rest and noise, and all things space. From chemical explosions to beatbox performances and safari quests for subatomic particles, we presented four packed days of events, workshops and performances that captured the minds of British festival-goers.
