2-in-1 Festival
Dockyard Festival ADE joins forces again with her fairytale sister, Mystic Garden Festival, in a marriage of dark and light; industrial vs. fairyland! Step into Dockyard’s concrete jungle and roam through Mystic Gardens enchanted realm on the same day.
Once you’ve entered through the main entrance, you can wander back and forth between Dockyard Festival and Mystic Garden Festival - you don't need to choose one or the other! You only need one entrance ticket (whether it's for Dockyard or Mystic Garden Festival) to visit both worlds.

On Thursday, July 4 we will announce our full line-up.
