Camping Information:

All camping – including GA, Dino-Den, and RV – is sold out for Lost Lands 2018. If you have a camping pass, you can still purchase the Early Entry add-on. If you didn’t get a camping pass in time, visit LostLandsFestival.com for information on discounted hotels and festival shuttles!

Camping passes (one per vehicle) are required to camp at Lost Lands. You are not required to camp with a car – if you are arriving without a car, you and your group will still receive a full campsite with extra space from where the car would be. For Thursday early-entry, each person of the group needs an early-entry pass – the early-entry passes are NOT per vehicle.

There is a General Store in the campgrounds should you forget an essential at home or run out of something during the duration of the festival. If you are camping and are needing to leave early, keep in mind that you may not leave the campgrounds between the hours of 10pm-7am for safety reasons. You can, however, move your car to the overnight weekend lots free of cost and leave at your leisure. Vehicles may leave and re-enter the overnight lots once per day. If your car leaves the campgrounds for any reason, it will not be permitted back inside the campgrounds.

For ADA accommodations, please contact info@lostlandsfestival.com.

Additional Tips for Lost Lands 2018:

  • You will receive complimentary earplugs upon entry. Be sure to wear them if you didn’t bring your own! Lost Lands is bringing 1,000,000 watts of bass and that isn’t friendly on unprotected ears.
  • Pace yourself. Three days of headbanging is not easy on the body! Be sure to stretch before each day and start warming up those neck muscles now.
  • Look out for your fellow headbangers. If you or someone you see needs help, go to the medical tent immediately.
  • Stay hydrated! It’s going to be a hot weekend at Lost Lands, with high temperatures landing in the 80s. Water stations will be available throughout the festival grounds as well as $2 water bottles.
  • Have fun, be safe, and be one with the bass!
