If you’d rather take a break from music, Lost Village has a great comedy area too. Though the comedy section is yet to be announced, previous acts include: Joel Dommett, Joe Lycett, Katherine Ryan, and Angela Barnes, with this years line up “coming soon”.
When you’re feeling a little peckish, Lost Village’s ‘incredible eating’ section will keep you fuelled. There will be various pop-up restaurants, The Eating House, tribal banquets & Sunday feast, Happy Maki, The Duck Truck, and Biffs Jack Shack – what a list!
