Lost Lands music festival turns three this year and the bass music community is more than ready to break their necks. The prehistoric themed multi-day experience was curated by bass legend Excision with the goal of filling the void that the other festivals have yet to satisfy completely. Lost Lands was created for headbangers, by headbangers.
The fans and prior attendees of Lost Lands have a strong connection with this annual festival. Camping is a major part of the appeal of Lost Lands – one of the few camping festivals in the U.S. But Lost Lands is no Coachella, nor is it trying to be.
The people who previously attended a Lost Lands are a big part of how the festival has evolved over its three year tenure as a bass heavy long weekend experience. Every year since inception, the fans are always asked for their feedback to make the experience better for the next show, and 2019 has some major upgrades in response to those requests.
On the festival experience side, early entry now starts on Wednesday to lighten the traffic in on Thursday. New options for camping are worth looking into, but the most innovative additions are the Producers’ Den and the Sound Camps. Sound Camps were introduced in 2018, giving a platform to up-and-coming DJs to get their music to new fans. The Producers’ Den gives up-and-coming producers an intimate learning session with some of the most talented bass producers in the game.
Since this is Excision’s festival, it is easy to trust that the lineup to be amazing. One must-see set will be Excision’s B2B with Illenium, considering the variance of sub-genres of the two artists, but will make the performance all the more awesome. Whipped Cream is on the roster in 2019 and this will be her first Lost Lands appearance. She is having a killer year hitting up festivals like Coachella, Shaky Beats, EDC Las Vegas, and Bonnaroo (to name a few) in addition to being on her own tour.
The rest of the lineup includes the very well known producers that are currently making their own festival rounds. ATLiens, Blunts & Blondes, Habstrakt, Peekaboo, Svdden Death and pretty much the rest of this year’s bass favorites are likely on the lineup for 2019, playing the biggest bass music festival in the world. Lost Lands takes place September 27th-29th in Legend Valley, Ohio. Check out the website to read about what is new in 2019 and get ready to reunite with your Lost Lands bass family.
