Ins and Outs

Guests may freely enter and exit the music venue and campgrounds. Cars and RVs in car camping will not be able to re-enter campgrounds. Cars in the overnight lot may exit and re-enter only once per day.

Not camping?

Grab a Shuttle Pass to ride between Downtown Columbus and Legend Valley all weekend.

We also blocked out some specially discounted rooms for all of our Shuttle Riders, located within 5-10 minutes walking distance from the Shuttle Pickup. Book A Hotel For Lost Lands Here.


All camping is Car Camping, so most cars and RVs will be parked next to their campsite. Car Camping vehicles may not leave the festival until Monday morning at 7am at the earliest.

All other vehicles must purchase a Weekend-Long Overnight Parking Pass and park in the designated lot on the northwest side of the venue. Camping is not allowed here. Cars in this lot may exit and re-enter once per day.

Overnight Parking Lot Hours

The lot will be open at all times beginning 12pm (noon) Thursday through 12pm (noon) Monday.

A Note About Water Bottles:

We at Lost Lands take keeping care of the environment very seriously. We highly encourage all fans to bring an empty reusable water bottle or an empty Camelbak with you inside the festival each day and take advantage of our free water stations located around the grounds.

If you must bring a disposable plastic water bottle with you into the festival grounds, you may enter with a maximum of two (2) bottles with the caps off. It’s much easier and more economical to bring a reusable bottle in with you each day and Mother Earth will thank you!

You may bring as much water as you’d like into the campgrounds, the above rules pertain to the festival grounds only (although we still recommend cutting down on the plastic). More info on recycling incentives and water bottle trade-in programs will become available as the festival gets closer.

Lost Lands is a Leave No Trace Festival.

Lost Lands strongly believes in a Leave No Trace policy when it comes to trash and waste. PLEASE bring plenty of trash bags, avoid things like cases of individual water bottles, pack smart and clean up after yourself everywhere you go. We all share this planet and beautiful venue together and Team Excision WILL reward those who are treating Mother Earth with respect. Only pack and bring in what you are willing to take back out with you. We are serious about this, please don’t leave the festival or campgrounds a mess.

Note About Attire for the Festival

Bring clothing for all temperatures – the nights can be chilly. The average weather this time of year can range from 75°-85°, but temperatures can drop down to the 60’s or even mid 50’s at night. Please come prepared for temperature fluctuations.

How much beer am I permitted to bring into the campgrounds?
  • You are allowed to bring up to one case of canned beer per person or a reasonable equivalent and one box of wine or 1 plastic container of wine per person.
  • You cannot bring any liquor, any glass bottles, any kegs – keep it simple.
  • If security deems an excessive amount of alcohol is being brought into the campgrounds, they may refuse to permit you to enter the grounds or confiscate the excess amount of alcohol.

If you plan to bring alcohol (reasonable amount of beer or wine) into your campsite and have campers under the age of 21, you may only bring enough alcohol for those 21 and over. Furnishing alcohol to minors is a FELONY and local/state law enforcement will be present in the campgrounds. Please party responsibly.

Since liquor is not allowed into the campgrounds, are we allowed to bring wine?

We can only allow box wine or wine in a plastic container into the campgrounds. 1 box per person. All glass bottles will be confiscated.

Gina relocated from monotonous central California to the damp, musically dense Pacific Northwest in 2009. Not long after, she became completely enveloped in the vibrant world of electronic dance music. Obsessed with the catharsis of dance and unparalleled sense of community, her life’s pursuit became attending as many live music events as possible. While she doesn’t limit her eclectic musical taste by any means, bass music is what most activates her tumultuous soul. Soon, within her grew the desire to become more involved and contribute to the community which has shown her interminable acceptance and purpose. In that pursuit, she began working with the artist relations teams at local powerhouse Foundation Nightclub and its parent company USC Events in Seattle. She’s now found a space where meaning and motivation converge and intends to embed herself as much as possible within those musical spaces.
