Emerald City at Secret Garden Party 2014

The Pirates were back once again for another year in The Garden. This time we built a massive recreation of the Emerald City from the Wizard of Oz in an art-deco style to co-inside with this year's theme of "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road", complete with DJ booth and dance floor.


The huge emerald shards, some standing 12m in height, were illuminated at night to provide a memorizing light display.


Taking a slight deviation from the tradition of the Big Burn happening on the Saturday, Pirate Technics instead closed the festival on the Sunday by burning the vast stage we built over 3 weeks to an array of dazzling stunt planes making heart-shaped trails in the sky.

The sun shone on everyone all weekend and it was a fitting close to what can only be described as a vintage year in the garden.


Check out this video if you would like to see the whole process from construction to burn!
