Lost Village is a surreal and intimate 4 day experience, taking place over a weekend in August, in the heart of an long-forgotten forest located near the village of Norton Disney, Lincolnshire.
Step inside another world and forget about what you leave behind for the time you are there! You will be taken to another realm where music, dancing, arts, theatre, amazing food and more is all you require to survive in this village.

Do we have to camp?
No, if you choose not to camp your wristband will allow you access on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday, however anyone leaving the site and returning the next day will be re-searched on entry.
Can I leave the site and return again?
We have a no re-entry policy. On arrival at the festival site you will need to bring everything with you in one go and you cannot leave the site and return to your car once inside. In extenuating circumstances it will be at the discretion of our gate manager and security team whether a pass out will be permissible.
If you are leaving the festival site because you are staying off site, you can only re-enter the festival site the following day. No same day re-entry is allowed
Do I have to pay extra for camping?
Nope, it’s included as part of your ticket.
Can I go back to the car once I’m in the festival/campsite?
We have a no-entry policy. On arrival at the festival site you will need to bring everything with you in one go and you cannot leave the site and return to your car once inside. In extenuating circumstances it will be at the discretion of our gate manager and security team whether a pass out will be permissible.
How far is it from the car park to the festival/campsite?
It will be a short walk (around 5 minutes) from the car park to festival entrance.
Are you allowed to bring knives for camping / food preparation?
No. Common sense will be used when your belongings are searched upon entry. We will only allow small utensils at the sole discretion of our security team.
Is there a campsite shop?
Yes! We will have a campsite shop which will stock everything a discerning camper needs. We’ll also have a campsite bar too, which will operate as an off-license.
What size gas canisters can you bring?
Your gas canister must be less than 500g. Any canister of 500g, or more, will not be allowed into the camping area. You will be asked to return canisters over 500g to your vehicle.
Will there be boutique camping options?
We will have a wide range of incredible boutique accommodation options which will go on sale towards the end of the year. Keep an eye on our socials and monthly newsletters to be the first to find out
Can I bring a camper van?
Yes, but we only have very limited space available for campervans so we advise keeping an eye on our social channels and monthly newsletters as they usually sell out within a couple of days. All camper van pitches are located in the ‘Camper Van Quiet Zone’ and the area must be kept that way. Sorry to be militant, but this is a requirement of the site and has to be enforced so we’d ask you don’t book a camper van pitch if this doesn’t appeal to you.
Is there a restriction on tent size?
No set restriction – however please be considerate to other campers and don’t bring anything ridiculously over the top. Gazebos are not permitted.
Can I bring a generator?
For safety reasons generators (of any size) are not permitted.
Can I bring a soundsystem/speakers?
As as condition of us gaining our license only small portable bluetooth speakers are permitted. Large speakers and soundsystems are not permitted. If you are unsure of the size of your speaker, please ask us!
Can I bring a barbecue or start a fire?
For safety reasons no barbecues or fires are permitted in any circumstance. Anyone found starting a fire will be removed from the festival immediately. This requirement is taken very seriously due to the nature of the site and the vast surrounding woodland. Thanks for understanding!
When does the campsite open and close?
Campers can arrive as of 2pm on Thursday 22nd August and as of 9am on the Friday (23rd), Saturday (24th) and Sunday (25th). Non-campers may enter the site as of 9am on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The campsite will close at 12pm on Monday 26th August, so you’ll need to be packed up by then!
Is there somewhere I can keep valuables?
Yes! We’ll have secure lockers available on site, which you will be able to pre-book in the new year.
The festival location is LN6 9HN. Please enter this into you sat-nav then follow signs for ‘Lost Village Festival’ as you get closer.
If you’re coming via taxi most local companies will be aware of the festival site, if not then simply give them the above instructions. The site is just off the A46, there will be lots of signs to guide you.
