Popping the cork as one of the first festivals to kick off the summer, Lost Village has gained a reputation as one of those majestic events; the type that you stand amidst an atmosphere of beats, seeing live art to the right, a battalion of ravers to the left, and a group of 24 people doing a yoga session in front of you. It’s unique, its special – it’s Lost Village.
Founded by Moda Black maestros Jaymo and Andy George last year, the duo smashed through the festival calendar and paved the way for boutique festivals to become the ones to watch.
In only its second year, Lost Village opens the festival season deep in the Lincolnshire countryside next weekend. With the likes of living legend Fatboy Slim, techno marvel Ben Klock and Bristol’s own Eats Everything taking to the decks, the three day festival is set to be one hell of an event.
The course of the weekend will bring top acts such as Jackmaster, Heidi, Ben UFO, DJ Koze, Enzo Siragusa and Midland, all complemented by live sets from Âme, Kink and Jack Garratt – and we’re barely scratching the surface.
It’s the little things that make a festival, and Lost Village is set to deliver. There’s theatre, a four-course tribal banquet, and street food from all over the world – not to mention unusual ‘inhabitants’ round every corner. For those who fancy a break from dancing, raving – and just, the world – the Lake of Tranquillity promises to allow you to find your zen, providing yoga sessions, wood-fired hot tubs, massages and aromatherapy. Possibly the best festival hangover cure we’ve seen yet.
With a plethora of incredible acts, weird and wonderful experiences and all the while being set in hauntingly beautiful woodland, we can’t bloody wait for Lost Village. So roll on the first festival of the season – it looks like it’ll be a hard one to beat.
There’s still time to grab tickets, starting from £149 for the full weekend with camping. Head over to www.lostvillagefestival.com.
