By Simon Ruppert

The Secret Garden is a cultural revolution turning ordinary gardens into musical oasis’ around regional Victoria - and it's headed to Dookie.

Okay, so that part is not secret - nor is the line-up, which features DRMNGNOW, Braden Pullen, Grim Fawkner, Briana Lee Band and Beth Caldow.

However, if you want the exact location you'll have to wait for the day before for confirmation.

Of course Dookie is not that big, so turning up in town and following your ears might work.

But to make sure you don't end up gatecrashing someone's private barbecue, get your tickets and await a confirmation email, which will turn up the day before letting you know the exact address.

Secret Gardens have been popping up all over the Goulburn Valley for the past four summers – in sheds, backyards, orchards; filing the space with vintage rugs, fairy lights, soulful tunes and great company.

This December 7 organisers have something extra special planned, and want to share the magic with you music lovers from across the area.
