Immerse yourself in the secret world of LOST Festival.
LOST Festival is not quite like any other event. For starters, no one knows where it is; festival revellers can only reach the festival by taking the blacked out bus to a secret woodland just outside London. You’re given a boiler suit to wear as you arrive, and most importantly – you have to leave your phone at home. Yes, it’s tough to leave the world behind, but LOST Festival will transport you to another galaxy for the annual extravaganza taking place 20th-21st August.
The festival is both a much-needed digital detox and a 24-hour hedonistic celebration, taking you into a world of immersive art experiences, lit-up treehouses and continuous multi-sensory experiences. Music-wise, they’ve gone big, with DJ legend Rob Da Bank on the Main Stage, alongside Tuck Shop, Two Inch Punch, Optimum Funk and Francobollo, as well as Folly, Funkwise, Maybug and Carrot Slide. The art installations that will adorn the stages that these musical greats will be playing are just as spectacular as the music. With works from artists including Alice Kilkenny, Tom Spicer, Amy Goodchild, Arthur Rambo, John Costi and David Shillinglaw, it’s no wonder LOST Festival is famed for their spellbinding sets and decoration.
On top of the eclectic line-up, the festival will be full of characterful bars (with an extensive range of both delicious and beautiful cocktails on offer too), delicious food stalls to keep you fuelled throughout the party, cosy-cute tipis for when you’re in need of a little relaxation and those adorable treehouses that will fulfil all your childhood fantasies. Whatever your tastes, LOST Festival will transport you away from your everyday routine, give you a chance to put down your phone, turn you into an artist and take you into a dream world, where the weird and wonderful takes charge.
