Gerd Janson & Shan 'Surrender'
Waze & Odyssey - The Pagoda
There's no denying that the Pagoda is perhaps the star of Secret Garden Party. What started out as a tiny little spot for people to dance outside, has turned into a haven for the best dance music at the festival. It's a stage, floating on a lake and if you've been lucky enough to catch a sunset there, you'll know that there aren't many things more beautiful to witness. The water shimmers, the heat beams down and the music belts out. Run by Firas from Waze & Odyssey, the stage has played host to the likes of Disclosure, Skream, TEED and Artwork and this year was the blow-out to end all blow-outs. The main men themselves stepped up a few times over the weekend, closing proceedings with a lot of love and passion but when they dropped 'Surrender' by Gerd Janson & Shan, that's when we were filled with both jubilation and a bit of sadness. A beautiful moment.
