From 3 to 4 November 2018, the Lost Lands Festival will return to the shores of Melbourne to regale Melburnians once again. Werribee Park, Melbourne will provide refuge to this coveted festival for 2 whole days.
There will be music, creative activities and entertainment which will cater for both young and old. The stars of the festival will be musical talents like Alice Ivy, Tim Finn, The Jungle Giants, You Am I, Kate Miller-Heidke, Clare Bowditch and more. Kids will have a great time with the amazing line-up including fairy tale creators Born in a Taxi, ABC TV's green thumb dirtgirl, dance party pioneers Morning Gloryville, resident toy lab Frankentoys and a Spiegelesque tent. Comedy, theatre and circus performers will render the little ones delirious with joy. Rock and roller festival wagons can also be hired during the day.
Furthermore, there will be market stalls to sate the shopaholic in you. Fill your bags with boutique, hand-crafted jewellery, stylish and vintage clothes, home décor and so on. Decorate your hands with henna and show off the beautiful yet temporary tattoos to family and friends. The wide array of food stalls will satiate your hunger for multicultural and multi-talented fare from all corners of the world. Let your mouth salivate thinking of the opportunity to savour Dutch pancakes, cannoli, marinated lamb, burgers, crepes, pierogi (filled dumplings), tacos, German sausages and the list goes on. There will be meat and vegetarian options.
You can camp with your family and friends and have a ball at the festival. If you enjoy the comforts of housekeeping, swimming pool and 5-star accommodation then consider booking a room at the Werribee mansion which is only metres away from the festival arena.
