Lost Village festival: A new age of the music & food festival, set within an abandoned forest
25 – 28 August 2022
Taking place in a beautiful forest, set amongst the Lincolnshire countryside, Lost Village is a surreal exploration that encompasses food, music, wellness, comedy, and a dose of adventure…
Discover an intricately curated world of music that spans electronic, disco, and soulful sounds, with artists such as Bonobo, Jamie XX, Tom Misch, Kojey Radical, Horse Meat Disco, and Honey Dijon, Daphni, Jayda G, and many more. The full music lineup is here.
As you venture through the forest, expect to uncover an array of weird, wonderful, and beautiful destinations, including an old airport, an abandoned zoo, derelict courtyards, and overgrown gardens; a journey that encompasses talks, wellness, lakeside relaxation, comedy, creative workshops and spectacular visual performances amongst a passionately curated array of food and music.
For the first time, we will see the arrival of Table in the Woods, with Santiago Lastra (KOL), Roberta Hall McCarron (The Little Chartroom and Eleanore), and Rafael Cagali (Da Terra) for a never seen before chef table experience located in the woods, all cooked over open flames.
Creating the festival’s most ambitious culinary experiences to date, 2022’s edition will also play host to the likes of Melissa Hemsley, Tim Siadatan with Padella and Trullo as well as the guys from Kricket, Fire + Wild, and Hawksmoor. Lost Village has evolved its four-day escape from reality with one-off dining experiences including lakeside banquets, and vibrant pop-up restaurants Lost Village is an incredible world of discovery, with music and food at its heart.
