With many acts featuring on the just-announced Falls Festival lineup, the cool thing about Lost Paradise is that it’s a camping-only festival, respectfully set on ancient land known to local Indigenous elders as ‘Paradise Lost’. It offers a completely immersive escape from city life. The guiding vision is to provide a creative, inspiring and respectful environment of extraordinary experiences and encourage people to forge deeper connections with nature, others and themselves.

This year, Lost Paradise are introducing a ban on single-use plastics, requiring all guests to acknowledge the “Paradisian Pledge” in order to purchase tickets. Encouraging its festival attendees to be aware of the environment, the goal is to minimise pollution and leave the campsite with no waste. As well as empowering guests to play a proactive role in their efforts, Lost Paradise use building materials built from 100% recyclable materials, and are proud to say the festival site produces zero landfill.
