EXPERIENCES

Home to the weird and wonderful, Lost Paradise is filled with unique and mesmerising characters and exciting curve balls. Revellers can hitch a ride on impressively built art cars, visit wild theme camps, and be hypnotised by aerial artists and roving performers like the Soul Drumming crew, magical wonders of the Ghetto Shaman, Stilt Walkers and Motor-Biking Bandits.

With an ever-growing desire for a place for festivalgoers to nourish their mind, body and soul, Lost Paradise’s magical Shambhala Fields oasis will showcase some of the most experienced and expert teachers and practitioners from Australia and overseas. Across three full days of talks, workshops and classes, the wisdom keepers will impart their expert knowledge and techniques enabling guests to learn, unwind, and reconnect.

The Shambhala Fields program has doubled this year with a dedicated talks and workshops tent presenting a variety of topics from neuroscience, medicinal mushrooms, magic, urban farming, veganism, mental health, sustainability and drug awareness, to African dance, forest bathing and hula hopping; the Shambhala Fields yoga and meditation tent designed by award-winning bamboo architects featuring renowned yogis Mark Whitwell, Eve Gryzbowski, Simon Borg Olivier, Michael De Manicour, Chocolako, and Lara Z; the Healing Arts Space with massage and body work, psychic and tarot readings, reiki and sound and crystal healing; and BOARDI, the Indigenous cultural area that aims to recreate an authentic community atmosphere connecting guests to the sacred land and history. The full Shambhala Fields program can be found HERE

Positioned next to Shambhala Fields, the tiniest of guests will have their own entertainment haven at Kids Paradise, with a programme full of fun activities like face-painting, kids disco, bouncing castle, family yoga, circus workshops, comedians, and old-fashioned games.

Lost Village is the festival’s shaded foodie hub where guests can dine on one of the long communal tables and fuel their bodies with food and drinks from some of Australia’s tastiest restaurants and food trucks including the much-hyped Instagram sensation Milky Lane, Cold Rock Ice-creamery and renowned festival favourite Holy Cow chai tent. Every taste and preference will be catered for, from home-made dim sum, Japanese and Southern-Indian street-food, authentic wood-fired pizzas, vegan and biodynamic fare, and wholesome treats. Craft beer container bars will serve ice-cold refreshments and revellers can spend time browsing the Lost Bazaar bohemian fashion markets. Explore the Lost Village HERE

Festivalgoers can pay to arrive to a tent already set-up for them which will then be ethically dismantled when the festival ends, one of the many measures Lost Paradise are putting in place to reduce non-biodegradable landfill and combat the alarming global statistic that 1 in 4 tents being left behind at festivals worldwide.
