Secret Garden Party will host its final ever festival in 2017.
The festival's founder announced the news via the SGP website earlier today, saying that the much-loved British event will shut up shop after this year's run, with the last ever SGP set to kick off from 20th - 23rd July 2017.
Known only as the Head Gardner, SGP's founder wrote, "I hope you don’t find the timing Machiavellian, however there is never the perfect time to drop this bombshell, too early or too late and people are going to miss out and be disappointed."
No specific reason for the festival's closure has been given, though the slogan "except no limitations" is plastered all over the official statement.
The Head Gardner also added: "So watch this space for the phoenix rising from the ashes", hinting a new fest could be in the works for 2018.
