The Lost Lands Music Festival organizers have taken to social media to make an official statement regarding the passing of two attendees this weekend.


Update, September 18: Excision has released a statement surrounding the passing of two attendees at Lost Lands. We’ll keep you posted with any further updates.


As the rumors and speculation continue to fly around social media surrounding deaths at Lost Lands Music Festival, very little information has surfaced to confirm what has been stated online. In our efforts to validate sources and provide accurate information, we refrained from publishing anything until official statements had been made to confirm or deny any rumors.

Just an hour ago, the Lost Lands team made an official statement on their Facebook Page to address the death of two festival attendees. While the actual cause of death is still unknown, our hearts go out to the families and friends of those who passed away.

We will continue to update this post as more information continues to surface. The official statement can be found below.
