Started by the founder of The Falls Festival, Simon Daly, The Lost Lands is a three-day festival taking place at Werribee Mansion over the Melbourne Cup Weekend (October 28 – 30).
The festival is for kids and big kids alike and is one that will bring together music, art, theatre, thinking, comedy and camping experiences in a music festival setting.
“The Lost Lands will give parents the chance to reconnect with the festival experience, while instilling in kids, a love and appreciation of music, arts and adventure,” said Daly.
Daly has since left Falls and this project marks his first since departing Falls.
As for the line up, the inaugural year features Mariachi El Bronx, The Waifs, Ozomatli, Missy Higgins, CW Stoneking, Architecture in Helsinki, The Grates, The Bamboos with Tim Rogers, Harts, Tash Sultana, Olympia, Ali Barter, The Little Stevies, Pounded By The Surf, The Royal Jellies, Nicky Bomba, Ainslie Wills, and Alex Lahey.
