Rob da Bank leads the acts that have been revealed for LOST the completely independent, unbranded immersive micro-festival taking place in woods approximately 1 hour north of London on Saturday 20th August 2016.
Revellers travel to the top-secret art project/festival site in blacked-out buses leaving their phones at home, before they're unleashed into the woods to become fully submerged in the ultimate artistic escape from reality.
The line-up also includes B.A.R.E, Tuckshop DJs, Feelings Residents, Afrobuddah, Two Inch Punch, London Disco Society, Siente, Dirty Laundry, Optimus Funk, Max Gersh, Funkwise, Amaroun, Francobollo, Folly, Carrot Slide, Genevieve Dawson, Emil Brynge, Maybug, Mohit, and more to be announced. Collectives on board include Shotgun Carousel, Light Eye Mind, and Please do not not touch.
Immersive art installations will be created especially for the festival by the likes of John Costi, David Shillinglaw and Alice Kilkenny. Other artists on site include Tom Spicer, Jodie Ann Powell, Bianca Bondler, b E, Nial Sheehy, Lizzy Bending, Rory Donaldson, Amy Goodchild, Dan Paints, Natalie Scholts, KIVU, James Ravinet, Daniel J Norie, and more to be announced.
This event is intended as an escape from reality. "From the moment you arrive, you will be encouraged to forget about life outside of the woods. To maintain the magic and sense of escapism, you will be asked to leave your mobile phones at home, to avoid distraction and contact from the outside world. We believe that without your phones, you are much more likely to be fully engaged in all of our live art installations, musical performances and the overall LOST experience. We ask that for 24 hours only, you forget about texting, emailing and social networking, and totally immersive yourself in our concept. Life is for living; give us your full attention and we promise you will not regret it."
Tickets are priced at £48 including b/f plus camping pitch.
The ticket covers the one-day festival plus overnight camping. Bell tents are available as optional extras. A return bus ticket from Kings Cross at £22 or a return shuttle bus ticket at £15 from a nearby carpark for those wishing to drive to the site, must also be purchased with festival tickets.
In addition to the line-up of art and music, revellers will be able to make the most of characterful bars, food stalls, cosy tipis, inventive chilling and viewing areas, lit tree-houses, independent camping and even a luxury bell-tent village.
