Lost Picnic has it all
Lost Picnic is Melbourne City's extreme outdoor live music experience. It is a celebration of spring with fabulous music, good food and fantastic performances by popular artists.

It is a family-friendly gathering which will be held on 7th October 2018 at Flemington Nursery, 448 Epsom Rd, Flemington, from 11 am.

Headlining this event is the wonderful Tash Sultana. Tash started off busking on a Melbourne street and is now an extremely sought after artist right around the world.

Tash taught herself to play the guitar and has a unique style. She started at a young age and has now mastered about 15 different instruments. Her voice has a magical quality and a live show with her performing is so worth going to see!

She has won several awards and been nominated four times for an ARIA award as well as multiple APRA nominations. Her latest album is Flow State and Lost Picnic will be the first place in Australia Tash will play after this latest release.

Other Artists
Meg Mac
Meg Mac has a beautiful, clear voice and is in high demand around Australia. Meg is a singer/songwriter whose first album went to #2 on the ARIA charts.

Marlon Williams
Marlon is from New Zealand and has an amazing, distinctive voice. He has been compared to the great Roy Orbison and puts on a captivating show. Writing his own music, he has produced his second album earlier this year.

Although Odette was born in England, she was raised in Sydney, where her South African mother introduced her to African music, soul, funk and rhythm. Her father was a jazz pianist and he introduced her to new wave, jazz and it is from him that she got her immense musical talent! Odette has been playing the piano since she was a child and is now just in her early 20s.

Big Words
Big Words are a Melbourne group who formed some eight years ago. They have an unmistakable sound and are very popular around the world. They are a five-piece band and now have a cult following. Each live show they have played has been a sell-out event.

Hot Potato Band
This band of musicians and performers began their career at a winery on the NSW South Coast in 2009. The band leader, Simon Ghali, got together several of his musician friends to play a one-off gig. And the rest, as they say, is history.

They became popular and eventually brought a singer on board and it was then that they really soared in popularity.

Children's Activities
The following is a list of entertainment for the children:
He will create magic and mystery and do so in a way to make the children laugh.

This is a show that will make all ages laugh and is suitable for the whole family.

This is a science show ,where they use all sorts of interesting items!

There will be all day activity here, where children and their parents can discover the magic of circus play.

This will be on all day with different things to make and do for different ages.

Play games such as totem tennis, boules or Tug of War.

Here there are interactive performances in and around inflatable animal portals.

Other Entertainment
This is a Belgium built travelling concert organ, which is the only organ of its kind in Australia. The organ's sound is that of a 20-piece band and needs to be heard to be believed! The music conjures up a carnival atmosphere and is well worth hearing.

This is an outdoor theatre company who perform theatre, dance and circus using 5m high, flexible sway-poles.

These are golden musicians who seem to be statues, and it is an outstanding act.

What a great idea this is! Huge, bright ladybugs gallivanting on stilts!

These are delicate, shimmering butterfly-like creatures who are also on stilts and who seem to float above the visitors!

This includes the circus playground and will be very amusing for children of many ages.

They all cost $49 each and look delicious:

French Saloon Gourmet Hamper
Hiro Sushi Gourmet Hamper
Annam Gourmet Hamper
Kirks Wine Bar Gourmet Hamper
