Chuck a big red circle around 3 and 4 November in your diary: The Lost Lands music festival is coming back to Werribee Mansion. And this year it’s waging a war against plastic.
Thanks to @nmemagazine for the great article on @thelostlandsfestival and our sustainability initiatives this year! ����♀️ (link in bio) . . #TLL2018 #thelostlands2018 #nmemagazine #sustainability #BYObottle #melbournemusic #melbournelife #melbournefestival #musicfestival #littlemelbourne #visitmelbourne #melbournekids #visitvictoria
Haven’t checked out Lost Lands before? It’s the brainchild of founder Simon Daly, the guy that also brought you Falls festival. Think family-friendly, very chilled, lots of sun and good tunes from the likes of The Teskey Brothers, Jess Locke, Amaru Tribe, Tim Finn and Kate Miller-Heidke.
The line-up this year is pretty sweet actually—a good mix of genres and some seriously talented local artists (Jess Locke was just written up in Rolling Stone and long-listed for the Australian Music Prize).
“It’s important that The Lost Lands supports and celebrates all forms of diversity in the music scene, ensuring the next generation of Australians are exposed to a variety of musical talent,” says Daly.
We're pleased to share @thelostlandsfestival 2018 Playing Times and Final Program with you all. It's time to plan your personal festival itinerary! ���� .

That’s not all that’s new this year. Following its commitment to be plastic-free by 2019, The Lost Lands will be banning single-use plastic, plastic bags, plastic straws, cutlery and water bottles. There’ll also be recycling waste bags for campers and free water stations for everyone (BYO bottle if you want to earn green points).
Got a tent? Check out the camping packages here.
Don't forget the food either. Both days will be catered by a who's-who of Melbourne food truck royalty. Expect to see familiar faces like Taco Truck, Beatbox Kitchen, Pierogi Pierogi (they make pierogis), Billy Van Creamy, and Eat Cannoli.
Where: Werribee Park Mansion
