The festival will return in October next year.

From humble beginnings in 2016, the Lost Lands has become one of Australia’s leading festival for families, enabling people of all ages to share a wild and wonderful experience with each other, and engage positively with the best in music, art, installations, entertainment, food, and wine. The Lost Lands has been built on the promise of igniting the festival lover in everyone, and continuously delivering on that promise year for the past few years.

Originally slated to once again take over the magnificent gardens of the Werribee Mansion later this year, both the young and the young at heart will have to wait to be captivated by a wondrous world of music, circus, theatre, comedy, art, food, wine as the festival announce the cancellation of their 2020 edition, postponing until October next year.

“It is with a heavy heart that we are postponing The Lost Lands for 2020. We were so looking forward to sharing this year’s exciting program with you all. The good news is we’ll be back on 29-31 Oct in 2021!,” the festival said in a statement.

“We were hopeful to come together as a community to celebrate our love of music and art after the challenging year we’ve had. However, in light of the current COVID-19 outbreak in Victoria, it’s clear that restrictions on festivals will not be lifted any time soon. We pride ourselves on making The Lost Lands a wonderfully safe place for families and artists to play, and will continue to follow the health advice to ensure we offer a safe environment for all.”

The pandemic has been devastating for the livelihoods of music, arts and festival communities in Australia and around the world. To keep things alive, the festival are encouraging punters to hold on to their tickets if they can, which will be valid for the 2021 festival.

Alternatively, festival goers can request a refund via Moshtix. All ticket holders will be contacted directly by Moshtix with details of this process.
