Without a doubt, Lost Lands is one of the most anticipated music festivals of the year. When the lineup dropped, thousands of dedicated music lovers rejoiced as they started making plans to attend this heavy bass festival, the first of its kind. General Admission wristbands have already been sent out, coming in a decorative package featuring a dinosaur-inspired information booklet and an official Lost Lands 2017 pin. To no surprise, Excision (Jeff Abel) plans to debut his festival by featuring a whopping 750,000 watts of bass and 3 full days of The Paradox as the main stage. Since there will only be more stage at the festival, the Cave of Souls, we are hopeful that there will be little to no scheduling limitations for attendees to catch all their favorite artists. With just about a week until the event, fans are anxiously waiting as they wait to head over to Legend Valley in Thornville, Ohio from September 29 – October 1.
Some scheduled performances for the weekend include Zeds Dead, Yheti, KJ Sawka, 12th Planet, Boogie T., Seven Lions, Liquid Stranger, REZZ, Dubloadz, Phiso, Spag Heddy, The Frim, Kill the Noise, FuntCase, Cookie Monsta, and Space Jesus. Not to mention multiple sets by Excision, along with a special b2b performance with Datsik and an epic return of Destroid. These musicians, among many others, are the reasons why festival-goers far and wide are gearing up to experience the premiere of this specially curated event. Honestly, if you’re into bass music, Lost Lands is THE MOVE this year.
Since this is the festival’s first year, there are some concerns among attendees regarding its organization, camping, and security. Of course, a first-time festival is always a gamble. However, considering Excision’s experience in the industry, his love for music, and his tight-knit crew of dedicated team members helping set up the event, we’re not too concerned about any major mishaps at the fest. Through his successful career in the music industry, Excision has created a very unique community. He communicates directly with his fans via a number of outlets, and truly wants people to interact in order to meet others and spread the word about his debut festival. All in all, Jeff Abel is taking as much action as possible to help his whole bass music family to Get Lost With Us at Lost Lands.
If you’re planning on going, it would be in your best interest to buy tickets now since they’re already over 90% sold out. Unfortunately, camping passes have been sold out for quite some time now, but there are plenty of ticket resale groups that may have them circulating around. Additionally, hotels and shuttles are available for attendees who would rather not camp. As always, be sure to purchase tickets from trusted sellers and sites. It’s always best to purchase from the official Lost Lands directly: http://www.lostlandsfestival.com/tickets/
