Lost Lands is an annual music festival in Licking County, Ohio. The festival is known for its heavy bass music, immersive dinosaur-themed production, and vibrant festival-goer community. Each year, thousands of people worldwide gather to experience the unique atmosphere and high-energy performances of Lost Lands.

The festival was founded in 2017 by Jeff Abel, also known as Excision, one of the leading figures in the bass music scene. Lost Lands was designed to celebrate the music and culture surrounding bass music, focusing on dubstep’s deep, heavy sounds and other bass-heavy genres.

One of the defining features of Lost Lands is its dinosaur-themed production. The festival takes place on a 1,000-acre nature preserve, transforming into a prehistoric wonderland for the weekend. Giant animatronic dinosaurs roam the festival grounds, and the stages are designed to look like ancient temples and ruins. The overall effect is being transported back to a lost world of dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures.

But it’s the music that is the real focus of Lost Lands. The festival features three main stages, each dedicated to a different style of bass music. The Prehistoric Paradox stage is where you’ll find the heaviest dubstep and other bass-heavy genres, while the Cave of Souls stage features more experimental and avant-garde acts. Finally, the Wompy Woods stage is a more laid-back area that offers a variety of genres, including house, techno, and trap.

Lost Lands’s community is one thing that sets it apart from other music festivals. The festival-goers, known as Headbangers, are a passionate and welcoming group united by their love of bass music. They come from all over the world to connect, dance to their favorite artists, and share in the unique experience of Lost Lands.

In addition to the music, Lost Lands also offers a variety of other activities and attractions. The festival features a vendor village where you can find everything from food and drinks to clothing and art. There are workshops and panels where you can learn everything from sound design to environmental sustainability.

Overall, Lost Lands is a unique event that offers a unique experience for bass music fans and festival-goers.
